The Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVAC&R) occupations program prepares graduates for employment with HVAC&R installation and service contractors and/or facilities maintenance positions. Students completing the program also receive EPA Refrigerant Certification. Having achieved the competencies of this program, students are prepared for full-time employment at an entry-level position or, if already in the fields, to advance in their organization.
- Demonstrate knowledge of the principles, properties and functions of residential and light commercial HVAC&R components and systems.
- Use appropriate tools and materials to size, install, service and/or repair HVAC&R equipment and systems.
- Interpret and use pressure and vacuum charts, blueprints and wiring diagrams for HVAC&R systems.
- Troubleshoot and diagnose malfunctions in HVAC&R systems.
- Use computational skills to solve problems in electrical, heating, air conditioning and refrigeration systems.
- Employ occupational health and safety principles and practices.
The College will award a certificate of competency to students who complete an approved credit-bearing career program that requires less than 30 credits. General education courses may not be required for programs that have less than 30 credits. The student must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. At least six credit hours must be in courses that are awarded grade points.
