HVAC Technician

Air Conditioning, Refridgeration & Heating Technology Certificate Program

See Details

Our collective concerns about the future health of the environment are at the heart of today’s dynamic Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Technology industry, driving progressive changes through planning and implementation. The shift away from some of the more conventional HVAC systems still used in older residences and commercial buildings has been dramatic and continues to evolve. Newer systems focus on renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, and creating comfortable indoor environments. One of the primary objectives of the HVAC curriculum is to introduce students to Green Technology concepts as they apply to HVAC systems. Students are prepared to confidently enter this vibrant field possessing fundamental skills required to service, troubleshoot, and repair commercial and residential indoor HVAC air management systems. Students also learn proper refrigerant recovery and recycling techniques, and are encouraged to complete Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certification testing. Upon completion of this program, graduates can expect to meet the essential entry level skills and knowledge required of an HVAC technician. With additional experience graduates may pursue opportunities allowing them to work independently, without direct supervision, supervise crews or teams of other technicians, or start their own business. Graduates may also choose to specialize in one or more specific areas of the HVAC market including refrigeration, air conditioning, and heating. Students will be required to complete out-of-class assignments in each course.
