As the United States recovers from the Great Recession, there’s one field that’s been relatively impervious to the economic downturn: careers in heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVACR). Oriental Half Round Door mats Eastern Culture Inspirations in colorful Floral Composition with Ornate Foliage Bathroom Mat H 51.1 xD 76.7 MulticolorIn fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS 2017) projects that job openings for HVAC installers and mechanics will swell 15 percent between 2016 and 2026, much faster than the average growth anticipated across all occupations during that time (7 percent). The expected addition of 48,800 HVAC positions is due in part to people’s enduring need for comfortable shelter in the face of increasingly erratic weather patterns. By illustration, the World Economic Forum (2017) – which has tracked the uptick in natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy – correctly predicted in its annual risks report that extreme weather events and natural disasters would represent two of the three most likely risks we would face, globally, in 2017. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, as well as the “perfect storm” Napa, Sonoma and Lake County wildfires, and the off-season winter wildfires in Los Angeles, have all borne this out. And all of these events have contributed to the need for failproof climate control in residential and commercial buildings. With burgeoning trends such as the greening of HVAC technology, the adoption of “smart” climate control systems, and the ever-changing environmental regulations set forth by local and national governments, HVAC is expected to be thriving field on into the future.Christmas Semicircle Doormat Owls on Celebrating Twiggy Tree Branches Annual Yule Noel Christmas Themed Print Halfmoon doormats H 51.1 xD 76.7 Multicolor

So what skills can these aspiring specialists expect to learn in HVAC classes? O*NET (2017)—a data organization partnered with the American Job Center—reports that heating and AC mechanics and installers have many responsibilities including installing, maintaining, inspecting, and repairing HVAC systems; performing tests to determine problematic components; working with sensitive systems such as water, electrical, and fuel lines; Christmas Semicircle Doormat Abstract Composition with Spruce Xmas Tree Ornaments Artistic Cones and Snowfall Halfmoon doormats H 51.1 xD 76.7 Multicolorrecommending upgrades to increase energy efficiency; and staying abreast of the latest technical innovations and governmental regulations for HVAC systems. Some technicians choose to further specialize, gaining skills in specific aspects of HVAC such as solar panels, green technologies, commercial refrigeration, or radiant heating systems.Black and White Semicircular CushionRocks in Water at Shore of Lake Autumn Isolation Tranquility Environment Entry Door Mat H 51.1 xD 76.7 Black White

Although there are varied educational paths to joining this field, O*NET (2017) found that 55 percent of responding HVAC technicians held postsecondary certificates, and 16 percent had associate’s degrees. Sixty-four percent of these professionals were industry contractors—a relatively secure segment as manufacturers and contractors may provide customers with year-round service agreements—and nine percent were self-employed (BLS 2017).

As stated above, the Partnership for Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigeration Accreditation (PAHRA) is the main national accreditation body for HVAC programs. PAHRA developed its program standards in conjunction with all segments of the industry including workers, HVAC educators, administrators, and state supervisors in technical education. PAHRA-accredited programs must use the industry competency exams (ICE) for graduating students, which test knowledge in three areas: Fish Semicircular CushionIllustrated Marine Aquarium Fishes with The Face of a Bird Hand Drawn Entry Door Mat H 51.1 xD 76.7 Dried pink Purple Dimgreyresidential AC and heating, light commercial AC & heating; and commercial refrigeration. These exams are administered by Gothic Semicircle Doormat Scary Skull in Grunge Sketch Dead Themed Dark Horror Evil Illustration Image Halfmoon doormats H 51.1 xD 76.7 Black and White (NATE).

Additionally, HVAC Excellence has accredited HVAC programs since 1999. A two-person team (an HVAC instructor and an administrator) performs on-site evaluations and weighs criteria such as the mission of the program; Arrow Half Round Door mats Tribal Style Arrow and Geometric Pattern in Retro Styel Cultural Asian Boho Bathroom Mat H 51.1 xD 76.7 Black Pink Greenschool finances; the availability of student services; the quality of student facilities; and instructor credentials.

Finally, there are various organizations that provide accreditation to schools as a whole including the Pastel Semicircular CushionJapanese Nature Sakura Tree Cherry Blossoms Romantic Hazy Dreamy Cheerful Entry Door Mat H 51.1 xD 76.7 Pale Pink Pale bluee (DEAC) for online programs, as well as six regional bodies which have been recognized by the US Department of Education:
