The nine-month Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration Program (HVAC) prepares graduates to enter the vast and continuously expanding field of environmental control. The focus will be on establishing an environment for personal comfort by controlling and modifying the environment. Whether it is heating, cooling, humidifying, or dehumidifying, an array of employment opportunities exist for qualified technicians. Students of the program study theory of air conditioning, ventilating and heating; electrical circuit; components, controls, accessories; servicing, troubleshooting, and installation of environmental control units.
While enrolled, students can obtain Section 608 EPA Certification, R410 Safety Certification and students will earn 150 hours towards their Sheet Metal Apprenticeship. After completion of this course, the graduate will have partially fulfilled the necessary requirements for the Massachusetts State Oil Burners Licensure Apprenticeship as well as the Massachusetts Refrigeration Technician Licensure Apprenticeship.
