Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning
Waubonsee's heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) program offers students a comprehensive curriculum to prepare them for jobs in both residential and commercial settings. There are several hands-on HVAC courses in which students learn by doing, plus a certification course. Students can also earn credit by completing an internship.
HVAC students choose from a variety of electives to round out their programs of study. These include advanced HVAC courses and course related to wiring and industrial control systems. A popular elective is the Geothermal Systems course in which students work with Waubonsee's fully functional campus geothermal installation.
Waubonsee also gives HVAC students service learning opportunities. Students work as a team to do anything from servicing HVAC systems to replacing entire heating and cooling systems.
