     Air conditioning technicians are in high demand. According to the U.S. Department of Labor during the next decade, job growth in the industry is expected to soar at 34 percent – faster than most other industries. With an average wage of nearly $43K per year, there’s no wonder why HVAC is in such high demand.

     Savannah Tech offers an associate degree, diploma and technical certificates of credit in air conditioning that prepare students for careers in the air conditioning industry. Program graduates are trained in everything from heating and air conditioning to refrigeration, ventilation, and humidity control for all types of buildings – often referred to throughout industry as HVACR.
