Begin Your Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Career

Are you interested in a career in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning?  Have you considered upgrading your HVAC skills? If so, you can be part of the growing field of HVAC technicians. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, HVAC technicians can expect to make $21 per hour. 

This program provides the theory, knowledge and hands-on experience needed for installation, maintenance and repair of residential HVAC systems. In partnership with Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) and Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC), Chesapeake, we will teach you how to troubleshoot, repair, and provide installation services. These skills can also help you prepare for a career as an entry-level HVAC technician or to enter formal apprenticeship training.

Classes meet Mondays through Fridays with day and evening options.
