LCCC Introduces Accelerated HVACR Program

published Monday, April 12, 2021
Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) announces an accelerated Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning Refrigeration (HVACR) certificate program that will begin in August for the Fall 2021 semester. The training will be identical to the existing certificate program but at an accelerated pace, and students will receive the same training and certifications as the other programs. The program, when followed as designed, will take 12 months to complete instead of 24 months, with HVACR classes to be offered during the summer, as well as both morning and evening classes, which allows students the flexibility to take classes no matter what their work schedule responsibilities are.
Students in both of LCCC’s degree and regular certificate programs will benefit from the new HVACR program, allowing them to take classes in other semesters and pick up classes they may have missed. Students can also begin in either the fall or spring semester.
All the HVACR programs are variations of the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree, with the difference being the amount of time the student needs or wants to complete the requirements. Students can switch from one program to another if the need arises, and those who have completed the certificate program can continue to earn credits towards the A.A.S. in the following semester if desired.
