Modern HVACR systems consist of multiple mechanical, electrical, energy management, and electronic components to operate and drive the equipment. Students learn the skills and theoretical knowledge needed to maintain these operating systems as well as troubleshoot, diagnose, and correctly repair environmental and product cooling systems.
In addition to field-related skills, students gain oral and written communication skills, advanced computation skills, customer relations and critical thinking skills through Arts & Sciences and technical course work. All of Dunwoody’s HVAC programs are accredited by HVAC Excellence.
