Heating and Air Conditioning (STC-HVC)

Program Locations: Atmore Campus and the North Baldwin Center for Technology (Dual Enrollment)

Career-Technical Division

Length: Two Semesters

The short-term certificate in Heating and Air Conditioning introduces the principles of preventive, predictive, and corrective maintenance for HVAC systems. Students will learn to perform troubleshooting and analysis on machinery used in various facilities and apply sound maintenance practices in all aspects of their work. This short-term certificate is a pathway leading into an Associate in Applied Science degree in Heating and Air Conditioning.

This is a career program designed for students to go directly into the labor market upon completion. Although some of the courses in this program will transfer to four-year institutions, this program is not designed to be a transfer program of study; therefore, it is not subject to the terms and conditions of STARS.
