Helping Florida keep its cool
Heating, air conditioning and refrigeration mechanics and installers work for plumbing, heating, and air conditioning contractors as well as a variety of industries throughout the country, reflecting a widespread dependence on climate-control systems. Some work for fuel oil dealers, refrigeration and air conditioning service and repair shops, schools and stores that sell heating and air conditioning systems. Local governments, the federal government, hospitals, office buildings and other organizations that operate large air conditioning, refrigeration or heating systems also employ these workers. Some are self-employed. With average job growth and numerous expected retirements, heating, air conditioning and refrigeration mechanics and installers should have excellent employment opportunities.
To meet this demand for skilled mechanics, Santa Fe offers a one-year certificate in Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Heating. This program is designed to enable persons to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for entry-level employment.
