By obtaining our associate degree, you gain a competitive edge. Instead of maintaining and repairing equipment, it may mean you manage equipment and plan for the future. We offer cooperative work experience as part of the FMT – HVAC/R associate degree program. Under this program, you may work at any number of area facilities for approximately 240 hours. An agreement is made between the student, the FMT – HVAC/R program, and an employer, and your grade is based on a student evaluation completed by your employer. Such real-world experience allows you to gain the skills that make you more employable.
