Although the official beginning of summer is June 21, local residents have already had their air conditioners running for several weeks. Piedmont Technical College recently expanded its offerings to make sure everyone can continue to beat the heat.
PTC added a certificate program for HVACR installers. HVACR stands for heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration. The program, which starts this fall, will prepare students for an entry-level job in the field, according to Bill Cockrell, HVAC program coordinator at Piedmont Tech.
