As the United States recovers from the Great Recession, there’s one field that’s been relatively impervious to the economic downturn: careers in heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVACR). Pastel Semicircle Doormat Watercolor Bouquet of pinks Romantic Artistic Corsage Design Bridal Wedding Flora Halfmoon doormats H 51.1 xD 76.7 MulticolorIn fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS 2017) projects that job openings for HVAC installers and mechanics will swell 15 percent between 2016 and 2026, much faster than the average growth anticipated across all occupations during that time (7 percent). The expected addition of 48,800 HVAC positions is due in part to people’s enduring need for comfortable shelter in the face of increasingly erratic weather patterns. By illustration, the World Economic Forum (2017) – which has tracked the uptick in natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy – correctly predicted in its annual risks report that extreme weather events and natural disasters would represent two of the three most likely risks we would face, globally, in 2017. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, as well as the “perfect storm” Napa, Sonoma and Lake County wildfires, and the off-season winter wildfires in Los Angeles, have all borne this out. And all of these events have contributed to the need for failproof climate control in residential and commercial buildings. With burgeoning trends such as the greening of HVAC technology, the adoption of “smart” climate control systems, and the ever-changing environmental regulations set forth by local and national governments, HVAC is expected to be thriving field on into the future.Animal Semicircle Doormat European Lynx Snowy Cold Forest Norway Nordic Country Wildlife Apex Predator Halfmoon doormats H 51.1 xD 76.7 Pale Brown White

So what skills can these aspiring specialists expect to learn in HVAC classes? O*NET (2017)—a data organization partnered with the American Job Center—reports that heating and AC mechanics and installers have many responsibilities including installing, maintaining, inspecting, and repairing HVAC systems; performing tests to determine problematic components; working with sensitive systems such as water, electrical, and fuel lines; Henna Semicircle Doormat Doodle Flower Arrangement Traditional Nature Inspired Illustration Soft colors Halfmoon doormats H 51.1 xD 76.7 Brown Pale orangerecommending upgrades to increase energy efficiency; and staying abreast of the latest technical innovations and governmental regulations for HVAC systems.

Although there are varied educational paths to joining this field, O*NET (2017) found that 55 percent of responding HVAC technicians held postsecondary certificates, and 16 percent had associate’s degrees. Sixty-four percent of these professionals were industry contractors—a relatively secure segment as manufacturers and contractors may provide customers with year-round service agreements—and nine percent were self-employed (BLS 2017).

As stated above, the Partnership for Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigeration Accreditation (PAHRA) is the main national accreditation body for HVAC programs. PAHRA developed its program standards in conjunction with all segments of the industry including workers, HVAC educators, administrators, and state supervisors in technical education. PAHRA-accredited programs must use the industry competency exams (ICE) for graduating students, which test knowledge in three areas: Ethnic Semicircle Doormat Warm colord Rhombus Pattern Design from Mexican Peruvian Cultures Halfmoon doormats H 51.1 xD 76.7 Vermilion Yellow and Blackresidential AC and heating, light commercial AC & heating; and commercial refrigeration. These exams are administered by Virgo Semicircle Doormat Black and White Symbol Zodiac Sign Astrologic Celestial Alignments Predicting Future Halfmoon doormats H 51.1 xD 76.7 Black White (NATE).

Additionally, HVAC Excellence has accredited HVAC programs since 1999.
