Vatterott College, 809 Illinois Ave., is now enrolling students in its two newly accredited HVAC training programs in Joplin, Missouri. The diploma program, Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Service Technician, is a 50-week program. The associate degree, Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technician, is an 80-week degree program with an emphasis on management. Classes are scheduled to start this fall.
The newly added diploma program, Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HACR) Technician, is a program for those who like working with their hands in a non-repetitive work environment. This HACR technician program covers concepts from air conditioning and commercial refrigeration, heat pumps, alternative and green energy, motor theory and control, hydronic heating and cooling systems, wiring diagrams and schematics to maintenance schedules.
The associate of occupational studies degree, Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technician with an emphasis in management, is designed for those choosing to blend hands-on and business skills. This HVAC training in Joplin combines heating, air conditioning and refrigeration service technician concepts from the diploma program with small business and management techniques. Students learn industrial and commercial load calculations, ethics in energy and society, direct digital controls, building and energy auditing and industry credentials and certifications.
According to the United State Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Employment of heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers is expected to grow 34 percent from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations. Rising demand for trained technicians will result in excellent employment opportunities”.
Vatterott offers practical hands-on training with day and evening classes, along with career service assistance, for both HVAC diploma and degree programs.
