Commercial Air Conditioning – APP

The Heartland Air Conditioning Apprenticeship Committee sponsors the Commercial Air Conditioning Apprenticeship Program. Program completion requires that you perform 640 hours of related class training and 8,000 hours of on-the-job training (OJT). 

The Commercial Air Conditioning Apprenticeship Program is a selective admission program restricted to individuals who are employed in the air conditioning industry and are working for a participating employer.

Prospective students who are currently working for a participating employer in this area are encouraged to apply for selection to the Apprenticeship Committee before August of each year. The program starts on the first Tuesday after Labor Day each year. 

Individuals interested in the program must first seek employment with one of the participating employers. Once employed, the individual can then ask the employer to sponsor them within the apprenticeship program. A list of the participating employers is featured below.
