Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technology (Code 912)
Associate in Applied Arts and Sciences
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. Air conditioning, refrigeration and heating technicians are skilled workers who install, maintain, troubleshoot and repair it. Much of the equipment with which they work today is computer controlled.
Technicians in this field are often employed to design, manufacture, install, sell and service equipment to regulate interior temperatures. 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 air conditioning, refrigeration and heating mechanics and technicians. They take at least two laboratory courses in their specialty every semester.
A layout of the courses for this program is available on the right.
