HVACR Technician

Get the Skills to Be a Professional HVACR Technician

hvac
HVAC students learn hands-on using industry-standard tools and equipment

9 Month Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning & Refrigeration Technician Career Training Program

Heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVACR) technicians install, repair, maintain, and upgrade systems that control air temperature and quality in numerous settings and establishments. HVAC job growth is propelled by new construction and the need to retrofit or upgrade older systems as more energy efficient equipment is released and new safety and environmental regulations come into effect.  As systems become increasingly complex, formal training and proper certification are imperative for entering and advancing within the HVAC field.

HVACR Technician Training at MIAT

Working safely on HVACR systems requires a thorough knowledge of the science of heating and cooling, a keen awareness of safety procedures, a proficient familiarity with the tools of the trade, and the ability to perform a variety of manual skills. The HVACR training certification program is composed of both classroom lectures and hands-on learning. The curriculum is designed to provide students with a foundation in HVACR while graduates of this program will gain advanced skills once employed in the field. In addition to learning various systems, the HVACR certification program teaches students:

  • Schematics Use and Interpretation
  • Tool Introduction and Application
  • Piping and Fitting Basics
  • Sheet Metal and Fiberglass Ductwork
  • Air Handling and Hydronics
  • AC and DC Circuits and Components
  • Heating Fundamentals
  • Vent System Selection and Installation
  • Air Conditioning
  • Refrigeration
  • Mechanical and Electronic Controls Troubleshooting
  • Load Calculations
  • Inspection and Documentation
  • Customer Relations

HVACR Certification

Certification is designed to hold workers to a certain standard of knowledge, productivity, and safety. Achieving HVAC certification before entering the workforce is not only important to employers, but also it ensures that HVACR technicians themselves will know how to conduct themselves and handle their work without having to be instructed on the basics. Three distinct certificates are included in the HVACR certification program:

  • EPA Universal Refrigerant Handling Certification including Core, Type I, Type II, Type III, of the Federal Clean Air Act Section – 608  (EPA examinations administered by ESCO on campus)
  • EEO Respect and Anti-Harassment
  • North American Technician Excellence (NATE) Core exams

Getting a Certification in HVACR

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Handbook 2012-2013 projects faster than average growth for employment opportunities in this field. Regardless of economic conditions, HVACR systems must be repaired or replaced as they age and fail in order to preserve food stores, cool/heat living and work spaces, and maintain optimal environments for warehouses.  HVACR technicians are an integral part of the “green jobs” trend, implementing energy efficiency and green construction strategies. Additionally, there is great entrepreneurial potential for those with HVACR industry experience who prefer to be self-employed.

MIAT’s HVACR Technician certification program is 9 months in length for full time students, assuming no interruption in training, and is offered at both the Michigan and Texas campuses. The training allows students to focus on his or her chosen field, graduating faster than it takes to earn a traditional 2- or 4-year college degree or complete a 3- to 5-year apprenticeship.
