The HVACR Certified Technician program is a two-year program of study in classroom and laboratory training that encompasses heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration.

Students in grades 10-12 may enroll and earn several nationally-recognized certifications.  Students learn basic concepts in electrical wiring and use this information in skills-based lab instruction under the guidance of Robert Tucker.  Diagnosing and troubleshooting skills are stressed utilizing window units, split systems, and in refrigeration.

Second year students design and build a large, walk-in cooler from the floor up.  Once construction is completed on the freezer, students move to electrical and then to a 230 volt refrigeration system where the unit must cool to minus 10 degrees Fahrenheit for inspection.

Gainful employment as an HVACR technician is expected for the majority of students completing a second year of the course provided each certification below is sought and passed, all aspects of program are completed satisfactorily, and student possesses and demonstrates soft "critical" skills including punctuality, ability to work with peers, and respect for authority.

Certifications offered:  EPA Universal, 410A, Preventative Maintenance (PM).
