Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning (HVAC) AAS Degree
The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning associate of applied science degree prepares the individual for a technical service career in residential or light commercial/industrial environmental systems. The student will study the mechanical and electrical/electronic systems involved in contemporary environmental controls. The academic requirements of the program provide a foundation for continued studies should the student decide to pursue his or her education or training.
- Degree Type: AAS
- TSI: required
Note: Criminal history may disqualify individuals from obtaining or maintaining any HVAC certifications.
- restricts the issuance of occupational licenses based on a license applicant’s criminal history; and
