The Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technology Program prepares students for skilled positions installing and servicing heating and cooling systems.
Students receive intensive training in labs to apply lecture material to practical situations. An Associate of Applied Science Degree, a 45-credit hour diploma or certificates (furnace, heat pump, or air conditioning) are options available to the students.
As part of the degree program, students may participate in a summer internship with local HVAC/R employers to receive valuable on-the-job training.
