  • 12 Months
  • 162 Course Hours
  • $2,895

Overview

This course is designed for individuals with minimal HVAC/R experience. Not only will you obtain specialized knowledge needed to gain your ‘Ready to Work’ certificates, but you will also be prepared to start an entry-level position. You will learn the fundamentals of heating and air conditioning technology. Topics covered include service and maintenance of packaged and split-type air-conditioning systems; measuring voltage, current, and resistance in electric circuits; concepts of recovering, recycling, reclaiming, and retrofitting refrigerants; and more.  With HVAC/R systems and technology rapidly evolving, formal training is now more important than ever. While it may be possible to “get a job” without training in some cases, job seekers who have gone through an intensive course have the advantage. Entry-level technicians with formal training reported stronger job prospects and a clearer path to gaining work experience. 

This course will provide the necessary information to pass the following entry-level certificate exams: 

  • HVAC Excellence ESCO Group: 17 Employment Ready Certificates 
  • NATE: Ready to Work Certificate
  • EPA 608: Section 608 Universal Technician Certification 

Upon course completion, you will also receive a voucher package for the HVAC Excellence Employment Ready Certificate exam* that includes:

  • Employment Ready Certificate for Electrical 
  • 1 Employment Ready Certificate for Air Conditioning
  • 1 EPA 608 Voucher

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites to take this course. However, we recommend having a high school diploma or GED. If you have the required work experience to take the NATE or HVAC Excellence certification exams, or currently hold Ready to Work certificates and have 2 years of work experience, we recommend our HVAC/R Certified Technician course.
