3. How Much Does It Cost?


Please contact us via phone or email for tuition rates and financing options. Prices for these learning materials:

  • EPA Exam 

  • Textbook


This follows our core belief that teaching someone this trade will change their life and offer job security. The tuition cost is a small amount considering the knowledge and experience you will gain and be exposed to. Plus the earning potential it brings in a proven trade with high growth projected.

1. Why pick the air conditioning trade?


There are several reasons why this trade is such a great choice. Here are just a few examples. 

  • The tremendous shortage of a/c technicians is not expected to end anytime soon. 

  • Job security is second to none since this is a taught trade not easily picked up on the job. 

  • The work is challenging and exciting and the pay is excellent. 

  • The path to owning your own business is just four short years. 

  • There is no overlap in our trade with others, so no one else is doing it. 

  • A/C systems wear out every ten years, so new opportunities are never far away. 

  • Big a/c companies have driven prices up very high so it is easier than ever to compete with them. 

  • Unfortunately, due to the lack of skilled training programs, 90% of A/C and heating units are installed and serviced incorrectly. This normally makes for much shorter life spans of the equipment and many more service calls. A highly skilled technician will spend a career fixing other people’s mistakes. 

2. How Much Do A/C Technicians Get Paid?

According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the average (mean) pay is $20.98 per hour (or $43,640 per year). The BLS states that the top 10% make $33.10 per hour (or $68,840 per year). Technicians who obtain their own licenses and start their own companies can make money only limited to their business skills. There are lots of variances in pay for A/C technicians. It depends on many factors, and most of them are based on your knowledge, understanding, and experience.

If you are hired on at a residential service company that runs mostly service, your value will be directly tied to completed service calls. Obviously, when you first start out, you will have a lot to learn and need to gain experience. However, with the right training and understanding of the fundamentals, you will set yourself up for the best-paying positions. Keep in mind this is a constant learning field, and the more you learn, the more you are worth. There are many sites quoting pay but always visit the Bureau of Labor Statistics for the most up-to-date and accurate information.

3. Tell Me More About The Technician Shortage?

Trade magazines and online articles for years have discussed the need for qualified technicians.

I invite everyone to search the web for A/C job information and also visit the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics website. You will see that this is an excellent choice for job opportunities with expected growth of 34% from 2010 to 2020. It is expected to add 90,000 jobs during that time, and the skill levels will be more important than ever with the new technology being offered. Job prospects and pay are best for those who complete technical training.
