The Most Important Skills You Learn in HVAC&R School

October 10th, 2019

If you are considering trade school as the next step in your professional journey, it might be tricky trying to figure out which path you would like to go down. One of Pennco Tech’s many popular offerings is our HVAC&R program. You may have heard a lot about HVACR and the career opportunities offered, but what exactly does it entail? If you have been thinking about enrolling in our HVAC&R certification courses in Blackwood, NJ or Bristol, PA, we have some insight on what you will be learning about in these classes.

Safety Training

The most critical component of any physical job, especially in the HVACR field, is safety. Therefore, safety training is one of our biggest points of emphasis in Pennco Tech’s program. Techniques involving gas properties and heat transfer are taught according to industry standards, and courses on equipment and environmental safety are included within the curriculum.

Troubleshooting and Repairs

One of the biggest components of the HVACR industry is repairs, so Pennco Tech focuses on classes that teach you how to fix broken units. Installations are usually a one-time job per household, but that system will need regular maintenance, which is where most of your business will come from. With methodical approaches taught by industry experts, you will know each system inside and out, so you can be well-equipped to fix any problems you might encounter.

Heating and Refrigeration Sciences

You can’t have heating and AC units working properly without proper knowledge of thermodynamics. The HVACR industry is a field heavily based in the sciences, so having a well-rounded education of these topics will help you to excel. From the refrigeration cycle to pressure/temperature relationships, having this knowledge is arguably more important than knowing how to install a heater into a home. If you want to go far in the industry, you will need to know the science behind the machines you are working on.

If you are thinking about pursuing a career in heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration, then Pennco Tech has plenty of opportunities for you to jumpstart your career. We offer HVACR classes in Bucks County and Camden County, so PA and NJ residents are both able to enroll in our programs.

I enjoyed all my teachers. They made it interesting and challenging. I enjoyed going back to school at the age of 48! Career Services was a big help to me. Danielle was great. She helped me with my resume and showed me how to apply. I got the job with Dietz and Watson! Pennco Tech was the right choice for me as I get ready to start my career.
