The HVAC industry is one of the hottest professions around, and we can help you get started!

If you’re looking for a new opportunity, it’s never a bad idea to consider learning a skilled trade. High tech jobs are frequently subject to the ups and downs of the economy or the stock market, but the trades continue to be recession proof. At The Arkansas Construction Education Foundation, our mission is preparing skilled trades-persons for rewarding and profitable careers. We offer a number of programs in construction, plumbing, carpentry, and a Heating and Air Training program. If you’re a career-driven self-starter that likes to work with both your head and your hands, we want to hear from you!

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for trained HVAC technicians will outpace the growth of all jobs by a nearly 2-to-1 margin, with growth projections of 21 percent through 2022. HVAC Technicians earn a median income of nearly $44,000 annually, and even the lowest 10 percent of earners made nearly $30,000 a year.

At ACEF, we provide top quality HVAC Technician training that includes instruction in controls, maintenance systems, and the principles behind HVAC systems. Our HVAC Training programs are competency-based, and take 2 to 4 years to complete. Once you’ve completed your coursework and field experience, you’ll be granted a “release to test” and can sit for the HVAC journeyman exam.

All of our apprenticeship courses are certified by the U.S. Department of Labor, recognized by the Arkansas Department of Career Education, and accredited by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER). Our apprentice Programs utilize the innovative NCCER curriculum, which is designed for success, and led by Arkansas’ most experienced HVAC technicians. And our training is offered at numerous sites throughout Arkansas, so you’ll never have to travel far to complete your studies.

ACEF is fully committed to the development of all of our students, and we take a lot of pride in producing the next generation of skilled tradespeople. We’ve partnered with Arkansas’ top companies since 1994, and they love hiring our graduates because they’re all professional, well-prepared, and have a great work ethic!
