(Code 912)

GRCC Program:

Heating and air-conditioning equipment make buildings comfortable for work, study or play. Refrigeration equipment makes it possible to safely store foods, medicines, and other items. The equipment that provides these conveniences is complex. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning/refrigeration technicians are skilled workers who install, maintain, troubleshoot and repair heating and cooling equipment. Much of the equipment with which they work is computer controlled. Technicians in this field are often employed to design, manufacture, install, sell and service equipment that regulates interior temperatures of buildings. They often specialize in one area, and may work both outdoors and indoors.

Students in GRCC’s program learn the theory and become proficient in the skills necessary to assume jobs as heating, ventilation and air conditioning/refrigeration service and installation technicians. They take at least two laboratory courses in various specialities every semester.

Students who complete the first two semesters of this program with at least a 2.0 grade point average are eligible for the Certificate in Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning/Refrigeration (Curriculum Code 924).

The following scheme is presented as a guide only. Courses may be taken in any order as long as all requirements (including prerequisites) are met. Students entering this program should have at least a 10th grade reading level and a 9th grade algebra level.
