For the first time, Paul D. Camp Community College is offering heating, ventilation and air conditioning classes to high school dual enrollment students beginning this fall semester.

“We’re extremely excited about this new partnership that will allow high school students to learn a trade in a field that has so many job opportunities,” said Dual Enrollment Coordinator Jeanette Pellegrin. “Students who successfully complete the program will graduate with a set of skills that should make them very hirable right away.”

HVAC is a one-year, 24-credit program where successful completers earn a Career Studies Certificate in heating, ventilation and air conditioning.

Students graduate prepared to take the EPA Refrigerant Handlers Certification test, which is a nationwide credential that is essential for HVAC technicians.

The classes will be offered on the Franklin and Hobbs Suffolk campuses beginning Sept. 8. For more information, contact Baker at or 569-6729.
