There are a number of HVAC schools that offer the training necessary to receive HVAC certification and become successful in the HVAC industry ( αποφραξεις αθηνα ). These schools, typically two-year community colleges or technical colleges, prepare students for the various tasks associated with HVAC installation and repair, by offering courses that address the required knowledge base for a career in the HVAC industry, while also covering a range of practical skills.
HVAC Technical Institute
The HVAC Technical Institute is a Chicago-based technical school dedicated solely to HVAC technology and training. Classes are taught be experienced and certified HVAC technicians, and aim to prepare students for careers in HVAC installation, sales, management, and/or repair, depending on their desired areas of specialization. Class size is small and the coursework is rigorous, but students receive quality hands-on HVAC training via high-tech equipment and close relationships with faculty. Upon successful completion of the program, students will achieve EPA level certification.
Penn Foster Career School
The Penn Foster Career School is another of the HVAC technician schools to grant EPA certification upon graduation. Located in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Penn Foster offers courses in refrigeration and air conditioning technology, heating systems, maintenance, etc. Though not fully dedicated to HVAC technology like the HVAC technical institute, the Penn Foster Career School still boasts a solid program that has been accredited by the HVAC industry. After finishing the required coursework, all certification registration and testing can be conveniently taken care of on-site ( αποφραξεις πειραιασ ).
Allied Career Training
Another reputable option among HVAC schools is Allied Career Training, a company based in Dothan, Alabama with a program that is dedicated primarily to HVAC technician training. It offers NATE and EPA certification licensing, as well as job placement assistance upon completion of the program. This school, however, is a more appropriate choice for technicians with existing experience in the HVAC industry who are merely seeking official certification, since ACT offers a “fast track” program that is intended to be completed in approximately one month.
The Refrigeration School
Like Allied Career Training, The Refrigeration School in Phoenix, Arizona is one of the HVAC training schools focused heavily on the job market. RSI prides itself on its job placement rate and markets its job placement assistance program as one of the school’s best assets. The school, which has been accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges, offers hands-on training and financial aid for those who qualify. Texts and materials for classroom instruction are developed by the RSI staff, which is made up of trained and seasoned HVAC professional technicians.
This is just a short list of HVAC schools available to any individual looking to start a career in the HVAC industry. Those who have been working in the industry for years, but who would like to update their knowledge of new HVAC technology or renew their certification, might also consider taking courses at one of these institutions, particularly those that offer truncated certification programs to accelerate the HVAC certification process.
