The Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVAC/R) certificate program is a part-time program designed for individuals who wish to secure employment in the HVAC/R industry as well as for those who are currently employed or seeking to re-enter the workforce. This certificate program gives students the opportunity to complete their course work in a shorter period of time than the degree program, while enabling them to obtain the skills that are fast becoming requirements for employment in an ever-changing industry. Students wishing to pursue the A.A.S. degree in HVAC/R can apply credits earned in the certificate program towards the associate's degree.
The HVAC/R degree program includes some courses that are offered day or evening and others that are offered on the weekend.
