Trinity Valley Community College offers a certificate in Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. A certificate of completion is designed to provide core courses in a workforce education program that specifically and directly relates to competencies needed for employment and potential advancement in  career field.

Employment of heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers is projected to grow 15 percent from 2014 to 2024 according to the most recent U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Outlook Handbook, much faster than the average for all occupations.

Commercial and residential building construction will drive employment growth. The growing number of sophisticated climate-control systems is also expected to increase demand for qualified HVACR technicians.

Repair and replacement of HVACR systems is a large part of what technicians do. Climate-control systems generally need replacement after 10 to 15 years. The growing emphasis on energy efficiency and pollution reduction is likely to increase the demand for HVACR technicians as climate-control systems are retrofitted, upgraded, or replaced entirely. In addition, regulations prohibiting the discharge and production of older types of refrigerant pollutants will result in the need to modify or replace many existing air conditioning systems.
