What Can You Do With an Automotive Air Conditioning and Heating Certificate?

With a certificate in automotive AC and heating services and repair, there’s a lot you can end up doing. CMC graduates go on to work as:

  • Automotive service technician
  • Automotive HVAC technician

Making the Complex Simple

Adjusting a car’s temperature is as simple as turning a knob, but the workings under the hood are a different story. A complex system of mechanics keeps the AC and heating working in a car, and it’s your job to keep it running. After completing your program, you’ll diagnose and find solutions to this technology with ease.

Hard Work & Smart Work

Fixing a car’s air conditioning and heater is hard work, especially with all the moving parts, both big and small. You need to know where each of the parts go, how they work together, and how to repair and replace them. At CMC, you’ll know how to work hard and work smart with these systems as you come to understand each part perfectly.
