NORA adds two new online Video Courses

NORA has added two new online video courses at its education website, Learning.NORAweb.org.

The courses come to NORA through two of the leading manufacturers of heating System components; Taco, Cranston, RI and Honeywell, Golden Valley, MN.

  • The Taco course is titled: How and Why to Use Outdoor Reset
  • The Honeywell course is titled: Universal Oil Burner Primary Control R7284U

The courses each carry 2 continuing education credits (CEUs) that can be used for NORA Oilheat Technician Certification Program re-certification.

Oilheat Technicians Manual now available at no cost.

Oilheat technicians and students can now access NORA’s entire Oilheat Technicians Manual without payment as part of NORA’s education and training mandate. 
     The manual, originally released in 2008, is the textbook for the NORA Silver Certification program and contains more than 360 pages of detailed descriptions, procedures and trouble shooting on all topics relating to oilheating. The seventeen chapters are clearly illustrated with hundreds of color illustrations, photos, diagrams and charts. 
     The Oilheat Technicians Manual can be downloaded, chapter-by-chapter in .pdf format or opened and browsed in a visually appealing, searchable “page flip” format here
     NORA has decided to make the manual available at no cost to students and technicians as part of its mission to, as NORA’s president John Huber says, “get as much good information into as many hands as possible; as easily as possible.” 
     The manual has already sold more than 12,000 copies in its printed form and is the required textbook for many technical schools’ oilheating curriculum. 
     The manual can also be purchased in its printed and bound version at NORAstore.org.
