HVAC/R technology continues to become more sophisticated with each technological development. Highly efficient and environmentally sustainable equipment provides affordable and reliable comfort in our factories, offices and homes. These systems create the demand for well-trained technicians who can service, maintain, install and retrofit complex equipment.
Graduates of Northampton's HVAC/R Technology associate's degree program complete over 400 hours of in-depth, hands-on study and are qualified to service and repair air conditioning equipment, oil and gas burners, heat pumps, ventilation and commercial refrigeration systems located in residences, offices, industrial plants, medical and educational institutions and retail establishments.
Earning an associate's degree gives you an additional competitive edge, particularly if you are interested in growing into supervisory positions. It is also a stepping stone to an advanced degree.
