Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration (HVAC - R)

 

Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Programs At EAC

Demand for HVAC-R installers and technicians is growing and it’s a great career field to consider if you want flexibility, a high wage, and the opportunity to learn a skilled trade in a short time. In as little as five months, students in EAC’s certificate programs develop the skills necessary to install, service, and repair HVAC-R systems through hands-on learning experiences. Students learn code requirements, electrical applications, proper refrigerant-handling procedures, system design, HVAC-R component operation, and the soft skills employers are looking for in their workforce. You can seek employment with a vast array of businesses and organizations, such as hospitals, retail stores, school districts, construction companies, and more — or work for yourself. The advanced certificate includes the necessary instrumentation training to work in commercial refrigeration and heating. Both certificates prepare you to sit for the Environmental Protection Agency and Energy Service Company Section 608 certifications and include an EPA certification course to provide insight on what to expect on the exam.
