Do I have to buy additional materials?

Can I get financial assistance?
ed2go courses are non-credit courses, so they do not qualify for

Why do I need this program?
It is estimated by the HVACR industry, that we are 60,000 technicians
short in the U.S. today of meeting the current need. Since 1982, there
has been a student enrollee decline of 71% in HVACR industry
conventional programs. Additionally, it is estimated that students with
a certificate degree can earn a minimum of $25,000 and within a few
years and extra credentials, the sky is the limit. A Service Technician
working with an HVACR company in Phoenix, Arizona, earned $142,000 last
year using his sales and HVACR experience.
How long is each of the HVACR program modules?
Each module is 60 days long. If, needed an extension can be purchased
for additional time.
I realize the length of each module is 60 days long. Can I
complete the course at an accelerated pace?
Yes the modules can be completed as quickly as you wish to complete
them. We have found that on the average it takes about 2.5 to 3.5 hours
to move through each lesson contained within a module and study well.
That has been the experience reported by past and current students.
That means around 20 to 28 hours of study within a module is average to
thoroughly complete a module. The 60 days in the module allows some
flexibility. You must also have a passing score of 75% or higher within
each module. If you finish before then, you may email your registrar to
be moved ahead in the program.
Is there an instructor available?
Yes, you will have a live instructor available 7am-7pm PST via phone,
skype, email and online chat. If you have questions outside of these
times, you may email the live faculty and receive a response and
assistance within 24 hours or the next 7-7 shift.
If I complete all of the coursework, will I be considered a certified
The course work will properly prepare you for the industry
certifications, but you must still pass the Core level and specialty
level of the third party industry certification exams to be considered
a certified technician. The program includes the cost of the first
attempt at each exam (Core and Specialty). If you do not pass, you may
retest at their own expense.
I would like to thank you for being patient and very helpful while partaking in the tremendous experience with this field of education. - M.M., California State University, San Bernardino
I honestly want to thank you for your good work, dedication and support you gave me during the two previous classes. I am not of many words, so thank you very much for all your great help and support. - S.Q., Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
I actually do understand more after your modules, then any of the others I had previously attempted. They started easy and got harder as I progressed, taking longer to master as the number went higher - well done on your end! I really do completely understand how a reversing valve works! The best tool a student can use in this course is the Module Objectives. They are good to reference the particular subject on a page in the module if you have a memory lapse.- B.M., Knox-County Career Center
I very much enjoyed discussing with my facilitator, regarding the applications of basic principles in course work to real world field services. All my facilitators gave me great support with their expertise in their specific fields. I really appreciated their kindness.- F.C., Norwalk Community College
Natasha you are the best! Thank you for helping me and getting me through my bad times, when I felt like giving up. Ed2go should be proud to have somebody so supportive on their team. THANK YOU!- D.B., Borough of Manhattan Community College
Your class was great, I learned so much. I am already using what I learned at work. I never realized how much was involved in heating and cooling areas, and maintaining comfort for our customers. Thanks again.- L.S., Muskegon Community College
I would like to thank ed2go and all my mentors, for being patient and very helpful in partaking their tremendous experience with this field of education. More power to all.- E.T., California State University San Bernardino
“I just finished the course #113 HVACR Electrical Common Components. I definitely got a better understanding. I also have a much better understanding of how to hook up my electrical components instead of going by the existing installations. It’s not guess work anymore!- M.M., Erie Community College
