Become a skilled technician in the HVAC/R field and join a rapidly-growing industry with the Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration program.
Moraine Park Technical College offers an associate of applied science degree program where students learn the principles of air conditioning and heating service and installation, and design of heating and air conditioning systems. In 2014, a laboratory and simulated construction environment was completed, giving HVAC/R students a state-of-the-art learning experience.
This program includes hands-on training in commercial refrigeration, supermarket applications of refrigeration, hot water/steam heating, geothermal heating and air conditioning, building controls, fundamentals of electricity, electric motors and controls, and studies in the movement of air specific to HVAC/R applications.
MPTC also offers training in building automation systems (BAS) and energy management to meet the energy needs of current buildings. BAS is a technology driven component of modern HVAC/R systems where the technician must utilize their training in HVAC/R system operation to program local and web-based control systems. BAS is the fastest growing segment within HVAC/R jobs.
