Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC)

Students may take the HVAC program as either a curriculum (college credit) program or a continuing education (non-credit) program. Successful completers of either program are eligible to take the NATE certification exam.
The HVAC certificate program is divided into two courses offered over two consecutive semesters
and must be taken in the following sequence unless approved by the instructor.
1) Fall Semester: Refrigeration & Air Conditioning
2) Spring Semester: Heating and Heat Pumps
The evening HVAC certificate program is divided into three courses offered over three semesters
and must be taken in the following sequence unless otherwise approved by the instructor:
1) Fall Semester: Refrigeration and Air Conditioning
2) Spring Semester: Heating and Heat Pumps I
3) Summer Semester: Heating and Heat Pumps II

Certified Production Technician

The Certified Production Technician (CPT) course trains individuals for the advanced manufacturing industry. The training is divided into four modules: Safety, Quality Practices & Measurement, Manufacturing Processes & Production, and Maintenance Awareness. Individuals test at the end of each module at an additional cost of $43 per test ($60 one-time registration fee). A CPT certificate is awarded upon successful completion of all four modules, and graduates are guaranteed an interview with Jordan Lumber, Unilin, Grede, KM Machine, PaperWorks, and McRae Industries. Scholarships are available.

CPT Module III: Manufacturing Processes & Production
Module topics include:
• Identify customer needs
• Determine resources available for the production process
• Set up equipment for the production process
• Set team production goals
• Make job assignments
• Coordinate work flow with team members and other work groups
• Communication production and material requirements and product specifications
• Perform and monitor the process to make the product
• Document product and process compliance with customer requirements
• Prepare final product for shipping or distribution
