Hvac-R Diagnostic
and Repair Training

Are you interested in a career in HVAC? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Nobody would argue that in the southeastern United States, especially in Florida, air conditioning is king. People would not live as far south as they do without a reliable air conditioner in today’s world. The population is growing and that means more AC units, which means more demand for techs. In 2018, the Bureau of Labor Statistics states that the HVAC industry is growing much faster than average nationally at 13% with 46,300 additional jobs added by 2028. Combine this with the fact that the average pay was more than $22.00 an hour and this looks and sounds like a solid opportunity.

Many essentials, like produce and medicine, wouldn’t be able to be shipped or stored without proper refrigeration. When a unit breaks, people depend on trained professionals to diagnose and repair their cool air.
