Certificate programs (which typically take one year or less) or diploma programs (which are usually two years long) can prepare you for an entry-level position as an HVAC installer or service technician.
Becoming an air conditioning or refrigeration mechanic generally requires completing an apprenticeship, which combines paid hands-on work with HVAC courses at a vocational school. The process is a bit different in each province and territory, but these are the basic steps:
• Find an employer who will sponsor you as an HVAC apprentice.
• Register as an apprentice in your province or territory.
• Enroll in an approved heating, ventilation, air conditioning, or refrigeration training program at a vocational school.
• Log a designated number of work hours for your employer and complete a prescribed amount of in-school training.
• Pass all mandatory exams.
• Receive your Certificate of Qualification or similar credential and become a fully qualified journeyman in your province or territory.
It can be easier to get an employer to agree to take you on as an apprentice if you have a bit of formal education first. In many areas, you can take HVAC college courses or short pre-apprenticeship programs to boost your chances of convincing an employer to sponsor you. You can even take some of your HVAC schooling online.
It typically takes between three and five years to complete an apprenticeship in this field. Some HVAC programs allow you to earn credit toward your apprenticeship, meaning that if you successfully complete the HVAC program, your actual apprenticeship will be shorter.

An HVAC degree is typically completed at a trade school or community college. The course takes average two years to complete. Some schools offer accelerated programs that can be completed more quickly. Other schools offer a job-ready certification that can be completed in as little as 16-17 weeks. Depending on the city.
