Key Program Features
Where there is hot or cold weather, there is a need for heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration professionals. Individuals who like hands-on work and can tolerate extreme temperatures should consider a career in this high-demand field. LLCC’s HVACR professors have more than 50 years of combined professional experience. Students learn to install, repair and maintain HVACR equipment in our state-of-the-art lab. The nine-month certificate program prepares students to enter directly into the workforce.
Employment of heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers is projected to grow 14 percent from 2014 to 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Also, the HVACR Workforce Development Foundation recently reported there were nearly 221,000 HVACR job openings available in 2014. Due to industry growth and retirement, the supply of available technicians is not keeping up with the demand of more than 100,000 people that will be needed to fill HVACR positions in the next seven years. The average annual salary in the industry is slightly more than $49,000 compared to the national average salary of nearly $45,000.
