What is The Main Teaching Method?

Hands-on is the short but important answer. Mr. Walters, the school’s Director, has seen many technicians over his 30-year career that did not get enough hands-on training or teaching. Many of these students came with certificates and made excellent grades. These same technicians had never touched some of the most basic components and instead spent most of the time in classrooms. Our facility is one big shop setting. You sit at workbenches and use tools every day. There will be lecture and class instructions, but almost all of it is followed by practical examples.

Upon completion of this program, students will be able to install, service, and maintain typical air conditioning and heating systems found in the southern environment of the United States. Graduates may find suitable entry-level employment with air conditioning companies, building maintenance departments, high rise building engineering departments, or other employment where HVAC skills are required.
