Name:Brazosport College - HVAC
Description:Living along the Gulf Coast, we depend on climate-controlled environments. As the population and stock of building grows, so does the demand for heating and cooling systems. Heating, A/C and refrigeration (HART) technicians install, maintain and repair climate-control systems in buildings. They also work on refrigeration systems that store and transport food and medicine. HART technicians work in homes, retail buildings, hospitals, schools, office buildings and factories — anywhere there is climate-control equipment or refrigeration.
Brazosport College’s classes offer hands-on, real-world training taught by experienced faculty. Because HART systems are increasingly sophisticated, employers prefer to hire people trained at an accredited community college.
