HVAC/R is one of the fastest growing industries in the world
today. With the changing laws involving refrigerants and the
influx of digital control systems, there is a constant need
for qualified service technicians to work on HVAC/R
equipment. A service technician will have to continually
update his/her skills to keep up with the changing industry.
This program will provide proper training for people
interested in a career in the heating, ventilation, air
conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC/R) field. The
technician will be prepared for employment in a variety of
areas including servicing, installing, designing, estimating
and selling HVAC systems for commercial and residential
applications. The most modern equipment, test instruments,
and computers are used for instruction.
After completing the HVAC/R associate degree program,
students may wish to pursue additional training in heating,
ventilation, and air conditioning engineering. Credit for
many of the associate degree courses may be transferred
to a four-year institution. The student needs to confirm
which courses are transferable with the accepting college.
