School of Applied Technology and Technical Specialties

Air Conditioning / Heating / Refrigeration (KACC)

This program is designed to prepare students for future employment in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration (HVACR) industry. The program consists of required core training courses and elective courses designed to allow students to determine which area of the HVACR industry they would like to specialize in.

Throughout training, students will be given the opportunity to demonstrate, thereby certifying, their skills by participating in nationally recognized tests which provide “Employment Ready” certifications. "Employment Ready" certifications confirm the student's grasp of the critical skills needed for entry level technicians in the HVACR industry.


Certificate of Completion: 955 Hours
