The associate degree in HVAC is conferred as an Associate of Science (AS) or Associate of Applied Science (AAS) as a function of the school’s courses and accreditation parameters. A typical associate degree program will take student’s 2-years to complete for full-time matriculation and longer for part-time students in the program. Foundational classes will look very similar to classes in a technical certificate program plus liberal arts classes such as English composition , communications , physics , and psychology to help students think differently about the world around them and equip them with critical thinking skills. Students may see additional science-bases classes along with green energy coursework as the industry evolves along with technology.
