The temperature on this career is just right

Getting temperatures just right in a building is something that everyone can identify with. Understanding how to do that is a specialized skill. With training, you can learn how to service both commercial and residential HVAC systems.

Program Details

While completing TSTC’s HVAC program, you’ll have access to our industry-standard labs on high-efficiency heating and air conditioning equipment, heat pumps, refrigeration, and even a 200-ton chilled water system. You can choose from an associate of applied science degree, or opt for a quicker route into the workforce with a certificate. Whichever you choose, there will always be a demand for HVAC technicians across the state.

Because this program may prepare you for an occupational license, read additional information about HB1508 Occupational License Eligibility.
