Training for Cooling System Repairmen

When you purchase a complete, Barbee-equipped shop, you get a five-day, hands-on course in radiator repair, using Barbee equipment. You learn how to make the most profitable use of your Barbee shop.

There are no extra fees. You pay only for your equipment and supplies.

Classroom and In-shop Course Designed to Train New Repairman Quickly - Our radiator repair course is structured to enable us to start a new class every other Monday. It is very individualistic instruction.

The BARBEE Company has for many years conducted a radiator repair and cooling system training course. Literally thousands of students have taken this course which has started them on their journey toward being first class radiator repair mechanics, well versed in all phases of vehicular cooling systems.

Each day starts with 2 to 3 hours in the classroom with instruction in:

  • nomenclature
  • methods of radiator repair (all types)
  • shop management
  • recoring
  • gas tank repair
  • radiator and heater manufacturing
  • equipment maintenance
  • pricing

We have recently updated this course to include the new and profitable opportunity of PTR (plastic tank radiator) repair. This segment of the course also includes:

  • plastic welding
  • aluminum welding
  • thermal plastic welding
  • silver soldering

The balance of each day is spent in our modern school repair shop where the students perform all facets with our full-time instructor. While at school, each student has an individual repair station.







The student will be confident in his ability to repair or recore any and all radiators and cope with any problems in trouble-shooting the auto, truck or bus cooling systems. With additional practice, he will have assimilated the fundamentals so that he can become a first class radiator repairman. Upon completion of this course, a diploma of certification will be presented.

One week, Monday thru Friday, with a new class every other week.

We take no more than 4 students each week. Thus we can guarantee a high level of individualized instruction.

Advance reservation for our school is necessary. Sometimes we are booking as much as 2 months in advance.
