Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning (HVAC), and Basic Refrigeration is an important field where formal, hands-on learning and experience can help you be successful. If you’re considering a career in HVAC, you are likely already searching for a good vocational school. After all, proper education can be important to succeeding in many fields, especially one that can be complicated or dangerous if done incorrectly. And there are several reasons why you should consider applying to STVT for your HVAC education and training.
Knowledge That Counts
The STVT instructors are industry-experienced and understand the critical skills of working in HVAC. And our HVAC and Basic Refrigeration program is designed around teaching you those skills in a safe, effective way.
Here are some common skills to consider if you’re seeking training for an HVAC career:
- An understanding of airflow, heat, and electricity.
- The ability to install and repair HVAC equipment, from refrigerators to air conditioners and gas furnaces.
- The design and construction of HVAC equipment.
- Customer service skills.
At STVT, however, we don’t stop teaching you the basics of each subject. For instance, you’ll have the opportunity to learn some of the intricacies of the various types of appliances HVAC Techs might be expected to fix or install – as well as the science behind the flow of air and the loss or gain of heat. We aim for you to walk away with the education and training to begin an HVAC career.
Learning With Specialized Experiences
At STVT, we value hands-on learning and knowledge just as much as we value teaching you the skills our industry-experienced staff believes you should learn.
However, hands-on training is only one part of it. Part of learning to work in an HVAC environment is learning proper workplace safety and technical and electrical skills. Workplace safety is something STVT takes very seriously. It’s a vital part of the HVAC field and being knowledgeable of workplace safety will help you in that field for years to come. Appliances and tools can be dangerous, which is part of why we offer hands-on training in the first place. The more experience you have, the more confident and skilled you can become in the field, and part of that expertise includes handling the tech and equipment correctly.
You can learn to thrive with STVT’s HVAC/BR education, picking up the vital safety and technical abilities that’ll help you to have confidence in the field.
