BRADFORD, VT. -- ARC Mechanical is proud to announce the training achievement of 10 HVAC technicians, installers and plumbers. One apprentice plumber is now a journeyman plumber; four ARC journeyman plumbers are now master plumbers; two service technicians have become Silver Certified Technicians through the National Oilheat Research Alliance (NORA); and three service technicians/installers are now qualified crane signalers.
Willie Bonser, a Corinth, VT resident, Nick Carbee, a North Haverhill, NH resident, Shaylor Duranleau, a Claremont, NH resident, and Brad Roy, a Woodsville, NH resident, are now master plumbers in Vermont. Brad also qualified as a crane signaler. All four are already master plumbers in New Hampshire.
Steve Copp, a Lebanon, NH resident and a 4th year apprentice plumber in NH, is now a journeyman plumber in Vermont.
Silver-Certified Technicians
Tyson Hayes and Jesse Webster, both Claremont, NH residents have earned Silver certification. To be eligible to receive this designation, technicians must have a minimum of 3 years work experience as an oil-heat technician, with at least 100 hours of training, plus they must place 78% or higher on the exam. Technicians must complete 24 hours of continuing education (CEUs) every five years to maintain accreditation.
Qualified Crane Signalers
Many of ARC’s HVAC installations require cranes to lift heavy equipment to rooftops, and the interaction between crane operator and the person signaling is critical, plus it must comply with the OSHA construction standards for SAFETY on the jobsite. Luke Hathaway, an Orford, NH resident; Brad Roy, and Andy Tomlinson, a Newbury, VT resident, have completed the competent person training for crane signals.
ARC’s staff includes seven plumber apprentices, six journeyman plumbers and thirteen master plumbers. Twenty technicians are certified to work on propane-fired HVAC systems; five are NORA certified technicians, thirteen are NATE-certified, and fifteen are qualified to work on refrigeration systems.
