Vocational
Heating & Air Conditioning

Heating and air conditioning systems are part of everyday life in the United States, and those that work in the heating and air conditioning field repair and install such systems in homes and businesses.

There are many options for HVACR training, the most popular being held at vocational and trade schools. Such programs can take from six months to two years to complete, and teach students skills in basic maintenance and repair of HVACR systems, temperature control, understanding equipment and its construction, electronics and more. Students should ensure that the program is accredited by a recognized national accrediting agency.

Some students will become trained through apprenticeships, which take three to five years to complete and include paid on-the-job training and classroom instruction.

Heating and air conditioning technicians will spend their days repairing systems that have broken down, correcting problems and testing the system. Technicians will spend time in clients' homes or businesses, and may be required to try and sell clients service contracts. HVACR technicians also install new systems, which requires reading blueprints, installing fuel and water supply lines and connecting electrical wiring.
