Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) February 06, 2014
On January 10th, The Spectrum published an article regarding the advent of HVAC courses at Dixie Applied Technology College. The article, aptly named “Dixie Applied Technology College Set to Launch HVAC, IT Courses,” discussed the school’s intentions to implement new IT courses in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. In light of the demand for HVAC certified grads in Dixie, HVAC Education encouraged people looking for a career to pursue HVAC courses at the local college, university, or tech school. HVAC Education gave 3 tips to keep in mind when looking for training in HVAC.
In the Spectrum article, Kevin Jenkins revealed the plans for Dixie ATC’s addition of HVAC IT courses. The classes were included in curriculum following the requests of numerous local businesses—businesses whose hiring pools were low due to the lack of HVAC classes in the area. The program is designed as a two-year course, during which students will be able to qualify for approximately ten different aspects of the industry.
The need for new HVAC trained professionals is increasing in areas like Dixie. HVAC Education recommends that people who are looking for a career–that they can get started in relatively quickly–should look into HVAC training.
HVAC Education offers these tips when deciding which HVAC training school/program to pursue:
1. Research to see if the school/program is accredited.
2. Study exactly what the cost for the training will be. If a loan has to be acquired, look at starting salaries to make sure the total cost of the loan (plus interest) is doable with the starting salary of a recent grad/certified HVAC tech. How long will it take to pay back?
3. Make sure the curriculum is complete. Before one commits to a program, verify that at the end of the program a student would have all of the knowledge needed to start working in the HVAC industry.
