Take a Minute to Imagine Your Lifelong Career in HVAC


In the Solar Thermal Systems course, renewable energy technologies students at Penn College develop skills in mechanical heating systems and piping while using the sun as a heat source. As Richard C. Taylor, associate professor of plumbing and heating, points out, there is a continual demand for technicians with such proficiency. “When I think about the value of the education here at Penn College in HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) … I see a real need for technicians in our society – in our culture – right now,” he says in a video on the college’s YouTube channel. “When your resume shows education and the other person’s does not, whether it shows the associate degree or, even better, the bachelor’s degree program, it’s an advantage for hiring. And we find that here at Penn College. It’s how our graduates get employment. This field, in particular, is one that’s not going to be decreasing over the years to come.”
