Why is the Technical Arts Center Better?

The Technical Arts Center utilizes proprietary subject based training: a process in which a student learns all of the parts and basic pieces necessary to become a more knowledgeable technician capable of performing a task and discovering the underlying causes of a part or equipment failure.

Subjects are dissected and delivered in such a manner that the student will be knowledgeable in many facets of the industry.

Since heating and cooling consists of a multipart system rather than a single component, the training made available must itself be broken down to cover the specifics in each individual aspect of the heating and cooling process.

Learning basics segmented into individual subjects allow a student to more fully internalize knowledge necessary to both diagnose and repair problems.


How Does It Work?

Our accelerated step-by-step technical excellence program is based on proven techniques, processes, and procedures developed by years of hands-on experience. It is delivered by the finest technical instructors in the country in an easy to learn and understand format consisting of both classroom and laboratory experience in our Houston, TX facility.

Through special arrangements with a local hotel, attendees receive a discounted nightly rate, free breakfast, and free shuttle service to and from the school. We will provide lunch on site.  See the programs page for complete details. 


How Is The Training Delivered?

The Technical Arts Center has developed a Unitary Learning Module subject-based training program that is designed to take almost any person with a little mechanical aptitude and provide the necessary skills to begin a career in the HVAC field in a shorter amount of time than other learning institutions.

And an even greater added feature is that the Technical Arts Center is the only tech development school around that has an actual operating HVAC service company attached to it. So, if a company chooses to invest a little more time with their students, the attendees can run live service calls with a trained technician in the field.

The Technical Arts Center is in beautiful Houston Texas, the air conditioning capital of the world and is conveniently located just 20 minutes from the Houston Intercontinental Airport. Houston is a major hub city and has plenty of inexpensive flights to, and from, every part of the country.

Arrangements have been made with Holiday Inn Express to facilitate your prospective technicians stay for the program and transportation to the center will be provided.

The schedule rotates seasonally so you can take advantage of every season.
