Education and Training Committee (EC)

Working Environment

The Education and Training Committee is actively involved into REHVA Student Competition and World HVAC Student Competition.

At REHVA Student Competition, REHVA stages these competitions to select and to award the best students in heating, ventilating and air-conditioning all-over Europe. Each European country has the right to nominate one entry to the competition. This has to be done through REHVA's members associations. The entry has to be based on a diploma, master or bachelor work in the field of heating, ventilation or air conditioning.

For details of your national competition, please contact your national association and click here to read the REHVA Student Competition 2019 rules.
