HVAC Installation Technician

Refrigeration, Heating & Air Conditioning WTCS

Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVAC/R) jobs are expected to see higher than average growth for the foreseeable future according to the U.S. Department of Labor. This high job growth creates a need for intensive vocational training in HVAC/R programs, leading students to become skilled technicians in their field.

Moraine Park Technical College (MPTC) offers an embedded technical diploma program where students learn the principles of air conditioning and heating service and installation, and design of heating and air conditioning systems. This program includes hands-on training in applications of refrigeration, hot water/steam heating, fundamentals of electricity, electric motors and controls, and studies in the movement of air specific to HVAC/R applications. In 2014, a laboratory and simulated construction environment was completed, giving HVAC/R students a state-of-the-art learning experience.

Credits in the one-year technical diploma may be applied toward the Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Technology associate of applied science degree.
