  The Technical Training Institute just celebrated 15 years 

  offering  the most comprehensive professional development 

  and License Exam Prep courses in the industry



 Did you know over 90% of TTI students pass

their licensing exams the first time?








                                 1.  NATE CORE/Service Exam changed to Thursday, March 5th

                                 2. Tech Builder III five-week program begins Friday, March 6th

                                 3. NATE Air Distribution Exam changed to Thursday, March 12th



License Exam Prep: We take the anxiety out of the licensing an testing process. Our course covers hundreds of sample test questions in two fast-paced days for NC electrical, plumbing and heating applicants. Engaging, multi-media presentations teach real-world skills our students use the very next day in the field.  Over 90% of TTI students learn to use the code books and apply simple techniques to pass their license exams the first time. 

Design Services: TTI now offers load estimating and hvac system services. Our mechanical design staff starts with a detailed plan analysis and provides complete room by room loads based on your specifications. This program also offers technical assistance, design reviews, and field consultation services. Technical excellence, responsive scheduling, and fast, efficient results are just a few of the benefits of TTI's design services.


NATE Technician Certification:  One-day prep courses and proctored certification exams to build the knowledgeable, well-trained and highly experienced technicians sought by employers, contractors and consumers.


Research and Development:  In 2012, a collaborative effort between contractors and leading chemists resulted in a polymeric sealant that cures

"Dirty-Sock Syndrome", the coil-odor problem that has plagued the hvac industry for decades. 


VindEX Ultra is the only field-applied cure for "dirty-sock" syndrome, that locker-room smell that affects aluminum coils.  With a 100% success rate; professional application takes only minutes instead of weeks,  greatly reducing the downtime required to seal the coil and eliminate all odors.  Did we mention it's cost efficient? Less than $70 to seal and protect a residential system.
