The HVAC Maintenance Technology Online Certification program is designed to help students develop technical knowledge and skills related to the installation, repair, and maintenance of residential heating and air conditioning equipment. Graduates will be awarded a Technical Certificate in HVAC Maintenance Technology and EPA Technician Certification as approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

This online program includes six course modules:
  1. EPA Technician Certification
  2. Air Conditioning Maintenance
  3. Heat Pump Maintenance
  4. Basic Electricity
  5. Electric Furnace Maintenance
  6. Gas Furnace Maintenance
NOTE: Each individual course in this program must be completed within 30 days of starting the section. Please see below for the extension policy.

Students will learn details about HVAC equipment, with an emphasis on making repairs in a safe, efficient, and productive manner. Students will learn WHAT failed, WHY it failed, and HOW the failure can be prevented. Understanding these principles will increase worker productivity and reduce overall maintenance/capital expenditures. Students will also develop skills in recognizing and testing the components, interpreting the schematic wiring diagram and tracing the sequence of operation, cleaning the equipment and performing annual maintenance, and tweaking settings for optimum efficiency. In addition, students will learn terminology, energy saving tips, technological advancements, tools and test instruments used in the trade, plus more.

    The HVAC program is 100% web-based and the curriculum for each course involves:

    • Online instructions and reading assignments
    • Viewing online lessons
    • Analyzing reference materials on various websites
    • Taking quizzes and final examinations via the internet
    • An option of repeating lessons and/or quizzes to improve scores
    • Participating in web-based meetings
    • Completing a mandatory 1-hour verification assignment
    • Documenting 10 hours of OJT assignments

    All training materials align with industry standards, governmental regulations, manuals produced by equipment manufacturers, current textbooks and lab manuals, technical publications, technological advancements, specially designated YouTube videos, and OSHA standards.

    Graduates will be awarded a Technical Certificate in HVAC Maintenance Technology, and, EPA 608 Technician Certification as approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.


    Students are encouraged to complete all coursework pursuant to the schedule; however, course extensions may be granted due to extenuating circumstances.  Extenuating circumstances may include family or medical emergencies, work related accidents, building system failures*, job relocations, employment terminations, military deployments, natural disasters, universal precautions, or hazardous substances and cleanup. 

     * Building System Failures mean significant damage to the electrical power, gas supply, water distribution, sewer system, or building structure that requires maintenance work from numerous technicians until corrected.  This definition does not include deficiencies in units that one individual can repair. 

    Students who meet this criteria may submit a request to have his/her course extended.  Documentation is required to support such claim.  More importantly, students are required to set realistic goals and timelines to complete outstanding assignments.  Requests stemming from routine maintenance operations will not be considered.

    If the request is denied, that decision can be appealed by obtaining approval from the student’s management team: specifically from [1] the Maintenance Director or Maintenance Committee, [2] Property Manager, [3] Regional Property Manager, and [4] a Regional Property Manager not assigned to that area.  Their approval must be unanimous, otherwise, approval from the Company CEO is required.

    HEA103 - EPA Technician Certification

    The primary objective of this course is to prepare students for the EPA Technician Certification exam. It does not require a highly skilled service technician to pass the exam, but some background and experience will be helpful. The students will learn the potential of releasing CFC's and HCFC's into the environment, and information that will encourage them to comply with the Refrigerant Recycling Rule, which is section 608 of the Clean Air Act 1990, as amended CAA.

    HEA104 - Air Conditioning Maintenance

    This course develops skills in servicing air conditioners. Students will learn how to diagnose the electrical system, the refrigeration system, and the mechanical devices. Specifically, they will develop skills in recovery and evacuation, leak testing, troubleshooting the compressor for mechanical or electrical problems, charging and/or recharging the system, adjusting the unit for optimum efficiency, and making repairs in safe, efficient and productive manners.

    HEA105 - Heat Pump Maintenance

    This course studies the basic approach to servicing heat pumps. The students will learn principles of a reverse-cycle heat pump; identify and test the components; determine if the unit is heating or cooling by measuring line temperatures; adjust auxiliary heat; and various techniques that will improve the efficiency of a unit. In addition, the students will gain exposure to causes of failures, preventive maintenance techniques, safety information, tools, testing equipment, and most importantly, how to make all repairs in safe, efficient, and productive manners.

    GEN101 - Basic Electricity

    This course develops skills in understanding electrical fundamentals as a prerequisite for diagnosing and repairing major appliances, heating and cooling equipment, swimming pool pumps and motors, and defective circuits in a home or apartment.  Specifically, the students will learn electrical theory, electrical terminology, ohms law, and electrical formulas. From a practical standpoint, students will learn how electricity is produced and distributed from the utility company, the demand for electricity in a home or apartment, how to diagnose failures using a volt-ohm meter, how to interpret diagrams and schematic, plus more.

    HEA101 - Electric Furnace Maintenance

    This course develops skills in servicing electric furnaces. Students will learn electric heating principles; how to interpret the schematic wiring diagram; how to trace the sequence of operation; and how to test and evaluate the heating elements, fusible links, limit switches, sequencer, and more. Also, the students will learn how to make repairs in no heat situations, and more importantly, how to make those repairs in safe, efficient and productive manners.

    HEA102 - Gas Furnace Maintenance

    This course develops skills in servicing gas furnaces. The students will learn to recognize the components, interpret the schematic wiring diagram; trace the sequence of operation; replace defective parts; and adjust the furnace for optimum efficiency. Also, the students will learn to make repairs in no heat situations, clean the furnace, check for gas leaks, check for carbon monoxide leaks and verify that a furnace is safe to operate.

    CertificatesCertificates are issued 1-3 days after course completion
