The CSIA Center for Education, Research & Training –

Because State-of-the-Art Training Deserves a State-of-the-Art Facility

While we offer e-learning and training on location through our CSIA Roadshow, all other training takes place here at our state-of-the-art Technology Center – including our National Training Academy.

The 10,000-square-foot Tech Center is the premier educational and technological training facility for the chimney and venting industry and is located within minutes of the Indianapolis International Airport.

Many thanks to our generous donors for supporting the building and maintenance of the CSIA Technology Center.
