Becoming a Skilled HVAC/R Technician

The Brownson HVAC/R Technician Program is broken up into 8 modules:

  1. Basic Thermodynamics, Refrigeration, and Copper Works
  2. EPA and Electrical
  3. Safety, Customer Service, and basic HVAC/R Competency Review
  4. Commercial Refrigeration
  5. Residential and light Commercial Air Conditioning and Gas Heat
  6. Controls, Heat Pumps, and Ice Machines
  7. DDC and Building Automation Technologies
  8. Building Performance

Each module is taught by a dedicated instructor who has specific industry experience in the area they teach. You’ll benefit from the experience and insight of a team of professionals, all with specialized expertise to share.

Unlike some HVAC programs where students start with whatever course is being taught when they enroll, at Brownson, students move through modules 1-8, in sequential order.

The program is specifically designed to help you continuously build on your skills as well as build relationships and connections with your fellow classmates.   Even if you choose to take the classroom portion online, your hands-on workshops will be with the same group throughout the program.

By the end of this program, you’ll feel fully prepared to work as a certified technician and have built a support network in the HVAC industry that could last a lifetime.

Nationally Recognized Certification

Students of this program are certified for Section 608 (EPA). NATE (North American Technician Excellence) and HVAC Excellence testing is available.

I’m making great money, have a company vehicle and good benefits! I’ve never been the type of student to just read and study material. I need to be able to actually practice on equipment, and the school provided me with plenty of hands-on-training in the lab.
