Advanced HVAC Technology
Students who enroll in the Advanced HVAC Technology program will acquire a working knowledge of the heating and cooling cycles and various phases of the fundamental principles of controls and electrical systems associated with HVAC systems. Students will also learn the principles and concepts associated with the EPA Section 608 Certificate and, when the student successfully passes the EPA examination, will graduate with their EPA Certificate.
The 220 clock hours program is taught over the course of approximately five and half weeks. The course introduces students to advanced training related to air conditioning and heat pump systems. Students will learn how to complete various tasks, including the explanation of heat transfer, thermodynamics, refrigerant and refrigerant oils applications, system components functions, recovery / recycling / reclamation, leak detection, charging procedures, evacuation, trouble shooting and problem solving utilizing proper diagnostic procedures.
Upon successful completion of the Advanced HVAC Technology program, the students have the ability to earn four nationally recognized certificates: EPA 608 Certificate, R-410 A Safety Certificate and SHA 10 hour Certificate, and HVAC Excellence Air-Conditioning and Heat Pump Certification.
