As the United States recovers from the Great Recession, there’s one field that’s been relatively impervious to the economic downturn: careers in heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVACR). Photo Wallpaper Mural 10066_P Wooden Relief floral pattern ornament wood woodenIn fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS 2017) projects that job openings for HVAC installers and mechanics will swell 15 percent between 2016 and 2026, much faster than the average growth anticipated across all occupations during that time (7 percent). The expected addition of 48,800 HVAC positions is due in part to people’s enduring need for comfortable shelter in the face of increasingly erratic weather patterns. By illustration, the World Economic Forum (2017) – which has tracked the uptick in natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy – correctly predicted in its annual risks report that extreme weather events and natural disasters would represent two of the three most likely risks we would face, globally, in 2017. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, as well as the “perfect storm” Napa, Sonoma and Lake County wildfires, and the off-season winter wildfires in Los Angeles, have all borne this out. And all of these events have contributed to the need for failproof climate control in residential and commercial buildings. With burgeoning trends such as the greening of HVAC technology, the adoption of “smart” climate control systems, and the ever-changing environmental regulations set forth by local and national governments, HVAC is expected to be thriving field on into the future.Photo Wallpaper Mural 10142_P Folk Pattern abstract art abstraction folk patter

So what skills can these aspiring specialists expect to learn in HVAC classes? O*NET (2017)—a data organization partnered with the American Job Center—reports that heating and AC mechanics and installers have many responsibilities including installing, maintaining, inspecting, and repairing HVAC systems; performing tests to determine problematic components; working with sensitive systems such as water, electrical, and fuel lines; Photo Wallpaper Mural 10398_P Professor Dog nature animal animals book books darecommending upgrades to increase energy efficiency; and staying abreast of the latest technical innovations and governmental regulations for HVAC systems. Some technicians choose to further specialize, gaining skills in specific aspects of HVAC such as solar panels, green technologies, commercial refrigeration, or radiant heating systems.Photo Wallpaper Mural 10728_P Pink Triangles abstract geometry geometric patter

Although there are varied educational paths to joining this field, O*NET (2017) found that 55 percent of responding HVAC technicians held postsecondary certificates, and 16 percent had associate’s degrees. Sixty-four percent of these professionals were industry contractors—a relatively secure segment as manufacturers and contractors may provide customers with year-round service agreements—and nine percent were self-employed (BLS 2017).

Aspiring HVAC professionals are strongly encouraged to verify the accreditation status of their program prior to enrollment. Photo Wallpaper Mural 20003_P Flower Alley Terrace View Nature Plants Flower AvThe process of accreditation sets up industry-validated standards for training in HVAC to ensure that a school is meeting or exceeding the skill set necessary to uphold government regulations surrounding climate control and provide quality service to customers. Photo Wallpaper Mural 20174_P Multicolour Powder Explosion Abstract Colours ColCriteria for accrediting organizations may include specific curricular requirements; school finance assessments; and an examination student outcomes & support services.

As stated above, the Partnership for Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigeration Accreditation (PAHRA) is the main national accreditation body for HVAC programs. PAHRA developed its program standards in conjunction with all segments of the industry including workers, HVAC educators, administrators, and state supervisors in technical education. PAHRA-accredited programs must use the industry competency exams (ICE) for graduating students, which test knowledge in three areas: Photo Wallpaper Mural Boy Girl Room Art WALL DECOR Cartoon Animal Lion Girafferesidential AC and heating, light commercial AC & heating; and commercial refrigeration. These exams are administered by South Seas Pull (Set of 10) [ID 909411] (NATE).

Additionally, HVAC Excellence has accredited HVAC programs since 1999. A two-person team (an HVAC instructor and an administrator) performs on-site evaluations and weighs criteria such as the mission of the program; Photo Wallpaper Mural Non-woven 10006_VEN Sketched Colourful Abstraction abstracschool finances; the availability of student services; the quality of student facilities; and instructor credentials.

Finally, there are various organizations that provide accreditation to schools as a whole including the Teng Tools Hmsf Caoutchouc & Doux Façade Marteau (DEAC) for online programs, as well as six regional bodies which have been recognized by the US Department of Education:
