Taking HVAC training can be a great way to jump start your future and build up the rest of your life, but let’s be honest, how many graduates really know what to do once they finish school? We’re going to help you as much as we can, obviously, but our assistance can only go so far. That being said, we’re going to list a few things you need to do in order to obtain he job you want and ultimately become the HVAC technician that you have always dreamed of. It’s not as hard as you think, but it won’t just be handed to you – keep that in mind.

What Do you Do When You’ve Finished HVAC School?

HVAC service trainingThe first thing you need to do is ask yourself if you want to go further. There are lots of people entering the HVAC field and quite frankly they will hold the same qualifications as you. That being said, do you want to stick with the certificate or do you want to go for the associate’s of occupational studies degree? We strongly recommend the associate’s of occupational studies degree, of course, and there are several benefits. The most obvious benefit of having an associate’s degree is the ability to enter a four year college bachelor’s program. Additionally, this will usually reduce the amount of time necessary to actually complete the program, which will ultimately ensure that you get into your field faster.

The next benefit we’d like to mention when it comes to the associate’s degree is the ability to obtain a degree in commercial engineering. Advanced degrees can help you to push forward into new careers, especially those that involve the installation of large HVAC systems. If you haven’t figured it out already, many of the systems used in hospitals, factories, and research centers are much more complex and they’re used for both cooling along with air filtration. Finally, this manner of HVAC service training will give you the ability to move on to the more coveted graduate degree, further solidifying your future in the HVAC field.

Seeking more Experience

Heating and air conditioning school can prepare you for many things but you may need to expand your horizons a bit. The completion of an HVAC program is really only the first step toward becoming an HVAC technician, and your next step will be obtaining work experience.  You need to take your academic training, but before you can actually be considered for an HVAC technician’s license you will have to gain a bit of experience in the field. This will involve the following:

  • * Work under someone who holds a valid state HVAC License
  • * Have work documented by supervisor (check state regulations)
  • * Spend time working on HVAC equipment


ITI Technical CollegeAs you can see, completing air conditioning repair school is a great achievement and it will give you the skills you need to compete in your field. This, however, is only the first step in becoming an experienced HVAC technician. You were probably already aware that graduating school was only the first step; after all, no one ever jumps into the career they love right when they finish school. What you can expect however is that your education will continue long after you finish your schooling. There is plenty to learn and once you receive your certification you will be well on your way establishing yourself in a great career.
