Advanced Certificate

This program has been replaced by Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration - Commercial Trade Advanced Certificate (CVHVCT). Students currently enrolled need to complete it by the end of the Spring/Summer 2015 semester.

If you have questions about this program please contact a program advisor or contact a general student advisor.


This program is a capstone to HVAC-Residential Certification, and is designed for students who wish to develop skills in HVACR mechanics or installation. It prepares the student for industry-recognized certification (C/IS) for entry-level employment in commercial heating, ventilation and air conditioning. Additional theory and hands-on experience will increase students' knowledge base concerning HVACR systems at the commercial level. The student will develop knowledge and skills in sizing, layout, installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting HVACR equipment found in small office buildings, schools, supermarkets, and other light commercial settings.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“I was very reluctant to take online classes, but because of my various roles as a wife, mother, full-time employee, and student my time was limited…. Online classes have helped with managing my time in these various roles, and have been a true blessing to both my family and my learning experience at WCC.”

—F. Robertson
