Congratulations to HRAI Instructor, Tom Cates, on becoming a certified IGSHPA (International Ground Source Heat Pump Association) instructor for the IGSHPA Residential Accredited Installer program!

HRAI entered into a Training Agreement with IGSHPA in March of 2022 where IGSHPA agreed to license HRAI to deliver IGSHPA training courses exclusively in Canada.  As part of this agreement, HRAI could also have current instructors become certified to provide the training.  Tom was the first of the HRAI instructors to do so. 

A licensed sheet metal mechanic and gas technician, Tom has been involved in various aspects of the HVAC industry for the past 30+ years.  Tom has worked for both large and small contracting companies in the residential, commercial and industrial sector and for a number of years, owned and operated his own metal fabricating company.  Tom has been an instructor for HRAI since 2006.
