Students in this 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. 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.
