Gain industry-specific hands-on skills with HVAC Training
With rapid ecological changes in the environment comes a need for more industry experts to keep up with today's colder and warmer climates. And ever since the first Lincoln Technical Institute campus opened in Newark, NJ in 1946, we've been providing HVAC training (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) to thousands of students throughout the United States.
Lincoln's HVAC program introduces students to Green Technology - green alternatives to comfort heating and cooling systems, as well as Solar Thermal and Geothermal Green Technologies. As the first school in the country that incorporates Energy Auditing courses from the Green Mechanical Council, you'll be learning advancements in technology that enhance your Heating and Air Conditioning training, skills and marketability to employers.
