The heating, ventilation and air conditioning industry has expended to include all phases of food preservation and temperature control for human comfort. In addition, many industrial processes require a product be heated or cooled to specific levels to create special compounds.

The Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning program offers two alternatives in its training. With successful completion of specific courses, students may apply for the Certificate of Completion in Air Conditioning. Completion of the two-year program, as listed below, will earn the graduate an Associate of Applied Science degree.

Students will receive experiences that provide opportunity for learning the mechanical and electrical principles of environmental control equipment. They will also receive practice in installation, troubleshooting inoperative equipment, and performing preventive maintenance on air conditioning, heating, and refrigeration equipment.

Lamar Institute of Technology also requires students to register for the College Success Skills Course in their first semester. The course is designed to provide students with a thorough orientation to the campus, postsecondary education, and the classroom skills necessary for success. Students with a thorough orientation to the campus, postsecondary education, and the classroom skills necessary for success. Students must earn a 'C' or better in all cources in the degree plan.
