The Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Diploma Program provides in-depth training in HVAC systems and demonstrates the hands-on skills needed to successfully maintain and troubleshoot today’s complex heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems, up to and including commercial and industrial systems. It establishes a framework of understanding of environmental issues associated within the HVAC industry and presents theory, diagnostics, and repair procedures. Typical operating conditions, and systematic troubleshooting, maintenance, and installation techniques are also presented. The program includes exposure to indoor air quality standards and discusses various sources of indoor pollution with an emphasis on molds and how to improve indoor air quality.
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) technicians specialize in the devices that keep houses comfortable, air quality pure and food fresh.
