“The PTC HVAC certificate program has taught me so much about HVAC but also about who I am as a person. While there is a lot of theory to cover, you are able to get hands-on experience rather quickly. As an added bonus, all of the instructors have field experience that they share.” Stacy M., HVAC Certificate student
