NTI’s HVAC Programs are broken into nine easy-to-manage courses. You can advance to a job-ready HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) technician with hands-on training.

Why a HVAC Technician Training Program?

Our HVAC training program is flexible to fit your schedule.

We offer three and four-month programs, weekend or weekday schedules, and morning or evening classes. Moreover, NTI offers a unique Fusion Training Program that allows students to learn online and apply their skills one day a week in our HVAC labs. Contact admissions now to learn more.

Students already employed in the field or already have some HVAC training and wish to take an advanced course may do so upon completing a prerequisite exam before enrollment.


As a next step in HVAC training, National Technical Institute also offers three additional courses as a part of our program. These more advanced courses allow students to move beyond residential and small commercial HVAC systems into “central plants” in large commercial and industrial buildings – such as casinos, hospitals, office buildings, and manufacturing plants.

National Technical Institute gives you access to dedicated HVAC instructors with decades of experience from all over the United States. Take a minute to meet one of them, Craig Straley.
