1. What are The Class Sizes?
The facility and the course were designed to teach a small teacher-to-student ratio. Class sizes will not exceed 12 students.
2. What is The Main Teaching Method?
Hands-on is the short but important answer. Mr. Diaz, the school’s Director, and Instructor have seen many technicians over his 20-year career that did not get enough hands-on training or teaching. Many of these students came with certificates and made excellent grades. These same technicians had never touched some of the most basic components and instead spent most of the time in classrooms. Our facility is one big shop setting. You sit at workbenches and use tools every day. There will be lectures and class instructions, but almost all of it is followed by practical examples.
3. What Can I Expect To Learn?
The air conditioning and heating technician training program is a comprehensive course designed to teach students the skills and techniques required for entry-level employment in the residential and light commercial, heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) field. Upon completion of this program, students will be able to install, service, and maintain typical air conditioning and heating systems found in the southern environment of the United States. Graduates may find suitable entry-level employment with air conditioning companies, building maintenance departments, high-rise building engineering departments, or other employment where HVAC skills are required. Graduates will learn through class lectures, discussions, and hands-on experience in lab environments. They will also be exposed to a variety of actual equipment and mock-up situations designed to prepare them for fieldwork.
4. What Do I Need to Bring To Class?
When you come to class on the first day, you will be given a textbook to study. All tools and consumable materials will be available for students to practice with. All you needed is an eager mind to learn real skills from us.
5. Can You Tell Me More About The EPA Exam?
The EPA Exam consists of 100 questions, the answer to all of which can be found in the textbook provided by the school. If you read the textbook and attend the review session before the exam, you will be able to pass with ease.
6. What Skills/Qualifications Are Necessary To Take The Class?
Students must be 18 years of age and have an ID issued by the government, or a foreign Passport with Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) Document. You need to be able to, read and write in simple English.
Prospective students will not be denied admission on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, handicap, age, or veteran status (except where age, sex, or handicap constitutes a bona fide occupational qualification necessary to proper and efficient administration).
7. What Do Our Students Say at Graduation?
The most important thing we hear from our students is that we gave them everything we promised. It is very important that students trust our comments and then see that we will follow through. We also hear great compliments from the families and employers of our graduates. At a recent graduation, we were approached by many family members telling us how this program has changed a loved one’s life. One mother told us her son was depressed when college did not work out and had given up hope until he started our program. She told us he came home every day excited and proud of what he had learned. Graduation night is very special to us, and it’s a great time for families to share this moment. We get many warm thank yous all through the program, and we always welcome graduates to return and let us see how they are doing.
8. How are we different?
The class is designed to get the information and labs to you in the most efficient way and utilize your time onsite in the best possible manner.
We are not about filling seats and adding more and more. We are about small class sizes and quality.
Some schools keep switching you to other trade classes to keep you there longer. We will never do this. You start in A/C, and you finish in A/C.
Some schools assign class time for reading the textbook. We give you recommended reading that you do on your own time.
We care about your future, and you are always welcome to come back for a visit.
