Top HVAC Training Schools in Kansas

When people outside of the state think of Kansas, the two things that usually come to mind are wheat fields and tornadoes. These two things come from the variance in temperature from one side of the state to the other. As the geographic center of the United States, the eastern portion of its state tends to have consistent, humid temperatures because of its proximity to other Midwestern states and dry, variable temperatures in the west, as it borders the Southwest. The clash of these climates creates a perfect environment for Supercell thunderstorms and increased probability of tornadoes.

HVAC technicians are always in constant demand in Kansas, not only for environmental comfort but also because of the proclivity for moisture from extreme weather to spawn mold in ventilation systems.

Courses in an HVAC program will teach the fundamentals of electricity, blueprint reading, and basic welding, as well as the proper procedures for handling refrigerants. An HVAC training facility will also prepare students for government certification and licensing exams.

How to Get Certified in Kansas

Federal law requires HVAC technicians to obtain a Section 608 certification, granted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Kansas is among the most lenient states in regards to certification, as there is no state-specific certification for HVAC technicians. Some employers may require a Refrigerating Engineers & Technicians Association (RETA) certification and give definite preference to applicants that have completed an accredited HVAC training program.
