About the HVAC/R Program

OBC can help you gain the skills and knowledge that can serve as the groundwork of a rewarding career as an HVAC/R technician.

Heating, ventilation, air condition and refrigeration, also referred to as HVAC/R, are systems that improve our quality of life in our homes and in commercial settings. Malfunctioning of these systems can mean being too chilly during the winter months or sweltering in the heat of summer without air conditioning. There happens to be a class of skilled trade workers who make sure the negative effects of heating and cooling problems are minimized. They are HVAC/R technicians. They also install HVAC/R systems and perform routine maintenance to help prevent problems from occurring in the first place.
