Total Number of Credits Required for Basic Certificate: 16*


*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101  course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101  during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the certificate to 17 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.

Program Outcomes:


Upon successful completion of this certificate, students will be able to:

  1. apply for and acquire an entry level position in the HVAC field;
  2. exhibit confidence servicing and installing HVAC systems; and
  3. achieve a broad knowledge of all applications of HVAC, both practical and scientific.

Certificate Description:


This program is designed to prepare students for a career in the heating, ventilating, air conditioning (HVAC) and energy industry. The curriculum blends “leading edge” HVAC and energy theory with a large amount of practical, “hands on” experiences for the purpose of developing confident, professional HVAC and energy technicians/installers. All classes completed for this certificate serve as building blocks for higher level certificates and the degree in HVAC and Energy Technology at CCBC.
