Frequently Asked Questions

How much will it cost?

While tuition is a major concern for many of our students, we try to be as affordable as possible.  Our HVAC program costs $6,000.  If tuition costs are a concern but you still want to attend, please reach out to our admissions office.  We will work with you to set up a payment plan that works for you.  Please contact Stephenie Hood at for more information.

What does my tuition cover?

Tuition covers all classroom instruction plus textbooks, personal safety equipment, school supplies, field trips, lab fees, pre-graduation certificates like EPA608 and tools and equipment used in the school.

How long does it take to get licensed?

Depending on when you start, the class runs nine months.  In that time, you’ll receive 300 instruction hours. Each day you’ll increase your skillset and book knowledge.  By the end of this program, you’ll be fully confident to take the Journeyman Exam and become a fully certified and licensed HVAC technician.

When do classes start?

Please contact our admissions office to learn about our next available start date.

What does the schedule look like?

Monday through Thursday from 6 to 9PM you will be in the classroom learning safety standards, EPA requirements and core foundation work with both residential and commercial heating and cooling. This is the perfect program for those who already work a full-time schedule.

When will I be able to start work?

We will make every effort to help you find employment with a member HVAC company as soon as you officially enroll.  Once you complete the course and pass the test, you’ll be considered a licensed HVAC Journeyman.
