California Colleges: HVAC Degrees

HVAC degree programs

If you are looking to change your career or enhance your employment prospects, why not consider training to become a Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVACR) Technician? Where would we be without refrigerated food transport, air conditioning in Arizona, heating in Alaska or humidity control? There is a wealth of opportunity awaiting you on completion of your chosen college education in ACH, ACR, ACHR, HRAC, HVAC, or AC technology.

Many roles involve visiting client sites in order or repair, maintain, install, clean, test or replace heating, ventilation, air conditioning, or refrigeration systems. You will probably need to be able to drive and in some cases supply your own transport—a clean driver's license with no endorsements would be an advantage. The nature of this type of work means that you will need to be able to work unsupervised and be self-reliant and self-motivated. Maybe you are attracted to this career by the frequent changes of workplace. You will find being physically fit helpful as work can involve heavy lifting.

While you do not need to have an academically strong background, you will need to have a basic understanding of electrical systems, plumbing, blueprint reading, and motors for the course. Basic computer skills may also be an advantage for report writing and logging of maintenance visits. The Air-Conditioning Excellence program, offered through North American Technician Excellence, is the standard for certification of experienced technicians. Like most technicians, you will probably specialize in either installation, or maintenance and repair of systems, although your training will generally cover both.

Job prospects are good, especially if you have a college education, according to the Bureau of Labor.
