Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration

Career Coach buttonSkilled heating, air conditioning and refrigeration technicians are needed on a constant basis to install, service and repair the air conditioning, heating and refrigeration units used in our homes and industries.

Programs of Study

Those who are interested in attaining the Certificate of Completions must provide the Registrar's office with a Texas Success Initiative (TSI) waiver to possibly avoid having to take a placement test since no core curriculum courses are required. A placement test might be required for those who need individual approval because they are without a High School diploma or GED.

Most courses have prerequisite courses so a required course of study is suggested. When registering for classes, please keep prerequisites in mind.

Importance of the Industry

  • Everyone relies on HVACR systems to operate smoothly, regardless of economic conditions.
  • Buildings and houses depend on temperature and air quality control and thus HVACR mechanics, installers and other occupations in the climate-control industry are in heavy demand.
  • Residential HVACR systems generally need replaced after 10 to 15 years, so the need for climate-control technicians is vast no matter the location, but especially in Texas.
