The Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technology Program (HVA) has always seen a demand for (HVAC) Technicians, and are even becoming more so with the number of residential, commercial and industrial buildings increasing.

Graduates from the Texas State Technical College Harlingen (HVA) program have excellent mechanical and electrical skills used to install, repair and troubleshoot air-conditioning systems and their components. They are able to use electrical meters, refrigerant recovery units, oxygen/acetylene equipment, manometers, air flow meters, temperature recorders and psychrometric charts for heating and cooling applications.

The TSTC program trains its technicians to communicate with HVAC engineers in solving technical and mechanical problems encountered in the field, and use and record technical information using the special instruments mentioned before. Students may choose to earn a one year mechanic certificate or a two year associate of applied science degree.
