Residential Electrical, Plumbing, and HVAC

Program Description

Residential Electrical, Plumbing & HVAC program trains students in residential electrical, house wiring and industrial motor control. HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration) includes basic electrical, heating equipment installation, sheet metal fabrication and installation, air conditioning installation and refrigeration theory. Students master core instruction and move into trade-specific and advanced training to learn to design, adjust, repair, install and/or sell in areas related to electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. Instruction is delivered in a hands-on environment, working in small groups or independently, utilizing self-paced materials that offer a wide variety of activities. Students occasionally work on a construction site, performing real job tasks related to their area of training. Co-op and work experience are integral to the program’s training methods. Also, students can participate in SkillsUSA, a student organization that promotes leadership and job skills.
