ACTA's HVAC Service Tech Training Program

ACTA’s HVAC/R Service Tech Training is a 2 Year Program. It is tailored to train individuals without any experience in the trade to perform the tasks of an HVAC/R Service Technician as well as provide seasoned technicians with new skills and knowledge.

Over the course of the training, students will acquire a range of skills, beginning with fundamental electrical theory & refrigeration, then progressing to residential & commercial service and maintenance. Upon mastering the fundamentals, students will then advance to learning how to effectively service and diagnose issues with industrial chillers. This comprehensive training will equip them with the knowledge and hands-on experience needed to excel in providing service and maintenance for both residential & commercial settings. By the end of the program, students will have acquired a diverse set of skills that will prepare them for a successful career in the HVAC industry.

After year 1, students will have gained a strong foundation in the principles and practices necessary to successfully pass their EPA 608 Certification Exam. This certification will demonstrate their proficiency in handling refrigerants safely and responsibly. Moving into year 2, students will delve deeper into their studies, expanding their knowledge and skills in preparation for the NATE Certification Exam. This exam will test their understanding of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems, ensuring they are equipped to excel in the field. Throughout this journey, students will receive guidance and support to help them achieve their goals and succeed in their certification exams.

You must have a High School Diploma/GED to apply.





Why A Trade School?

Attending a Trade School allows you the ability to complete the training within 2 years vs. 4 years at a much more affordable rate. Which also allows you the opportunity to enter the workforce sooner and begin building your career and earning an income.

At the completion of your first year of training, ACTA can begin assisting you in finding a job with an HVAC contractor. Once you successfully complete your 2 years of training, you will receive a certificate of completion.

How our Training Works

Using ACTA's Online Campus, every student interacts "live" with their instructor, watch “how to” videos and use virtual reality simulations to practice what they’ve learned each week. Even students with little computer experience find it easy to engage in class and learn what they need to know. In addition to our online training, each school year includes 4–6 in person hands-on labs.
