Barry Tech | Engineering Technologies | Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning (HVAC) / Plumbing in Long Island
About This Course
This course of study will combine classroom theory with hands-on training in the plumbing technologies as well as “Smart Home” technologies that will prepare Long Island’s students for entry-level positions in this increasingly important career. Students will learn on actual field equipment and will engage in basic safety around skills such as pipe-fitting, soldering, wiring of controls, and system operation. There will be added emphasis on better energy management as this is expected to lead to the replacement of older systems and the installation of newer, more efficient systems in existing homes and buildings. In addition to these “Green Collar Workforce” concepts, demand for maintenance and service work is expected to rise as businesses and homeowners strive to keep increasingly complex systems operating efficiently. At the same time, jobs outnumber trained technicians – get prepared for this exciting career today!
