Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning Jobs will grow two to three times the average growth forecast by U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook 2012-2013. The Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI), says its industry currently needs 27,000 new workers each year just to replace those who retire. The career opportunities in Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) are nearly limitless, and a career in the HVAC industry provides a dynamic and exciting career with many different job opportunities.
This is a 600-hour program that provides the required skills for entry level positions with companies that install, operate, troubleshoot and service light commercial and residential air conditioning, refrigeration, and heating equipment. Through classroom and “hands on” training, students will gain knowledge and practice skills necessary to equip them for success in the HVAC field.
