If you enjoy working with your hands and making people's home and work environment comfortable, there is a strong demand for well-trained heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) technicians. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics says that in 2012, median hourly earnings for HVAC mechanics and installers were $15-$17.
AACC offers a number of career training programs. Whether you are new to the industry or looking to upgrade your skills, you'll get comprehensive theory, knowledge and hands-on experience in installation, maintenance and repair of residential HVAC systems. Our short-term training opportunities can prepare you to start as an entry-level technician or to enter formal apprenticeship training.

AACC offers two convenient pre-apprentice training options through Independence Electronic Contractors or Allstate Career. Both programs are affordably priced, offer flexible schedules, and are conveniently located (Laurel and Baltimore, MD) as well as accessible by car, bus and Marc Train.
