A vital tradition
In a tradition that goes back to our early days, we are constantly upgrading the skills of already highly trained people to stay on top of emerging technical priorities. That's why Trane today has more than 680 engineers certified as Accredited Professionals under the U.S. Green Building Council's prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. We're also proud to have 40 engineers specializing in environmental issues and we look forward to doubling the number of both groups of skilled professionals over the next five years.
When you have the best people, you just naturally want to help them get even better.
