They say if you want something done right, do it yourself. By becoming a Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning and Refrigeration technician, you can do just that. Our HVAC courses could prepare you for the EPA certification exam and a bright future in your dream career.

Here are ten reasons why you should consider this career path:

  1. Don't get stuck behind a desk.
    If sitting still for hours on end doesn't appeal to you, then this occupation will. You'll be able to regularly travel and perform hands-on work instead of counting down the clock. 
  2. Great job outlook.
    Between 2016 and 2026, the Bureau of Labor Statistics expects HVACR jobs to increase by fifteen percent.1
  3. Enter the workforce quickly.
    Unlike traditional colleges, HVAC colleges and trade schools operate at a much faster pace. Our program can be completed in as little as ten months!
  4. High work demand.
    Since HVACR systems are complex, even avid do-it-yourself clients will call for your assistance.
  5. Continual learning.
    Even after graduating and beginning your trade, you will keep gaining knowledge as you work with ever-evolving HVACR systems and appliances. 
  6. Diversified training.
    Unlike other jobs that focus on only one aspect of a field, HVACR technicians will learn how to install, maintain, and repair systems.
  7. Make a positive impact on your community.
    Hospitals, schools, and many other critical institutions all rely on HVACR systems. Although it may seem small, the difference you'll make is invaluable to your customers.
  8. Develop the confidence to succeed.
    Many HVACR technicians eventually become on-call for various work sites. Knowing others trust and depend on you for their repairing needs can instill pride in your work and boost your work ethic.
  9. Become more mechanically minded.
    Once you've worked with difficult machines, you may find yourself more interested in and capable of fixing simpler appliances.
  10. Gain skills to take anywhere.
    Since most buildings rely on HVACR systems to operate, the experience you accumulate can be applied wherever you go.
