Begin Your HVAC Certificate in January

HVAC PhotoGain the skills needed to enter the growing and lucrative HVAC field by enrolling in Olney Central College’s certificate program.

OCC’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning courses cover the installation of new systems and repair to existing HVAC systems for residential and small business purposes. Students study everything from control circuits and refrigerant cycles to furnaces, boilers and heat pumps. Classes are offered in a hybrid format, reducing the time students are required to be in the classroom.

“The hybrid classes make it easier for those who want to take the classes, but have time constraints,” Instructor Logan Marshall said. “The students will be able to go through instructional videos and tutorials at their own leisure.”

The face-to-face meetings will then be devoted to instruction on further technical points and to the hands-on lab experience. Both day and evening classes are available.

Students who successfully complete the two-semester Industrial Maintenance HVAC I Program will be qualified to find jobs as entry-level HVAC technicians. After completing their training, graduates can expect to earn an average salary of more than $21 an hour.

For more information about the certificate or to register, call 618-395-7777. Spring semester classes start Jan. 8.
