Atlanta Technical College offers a diploma program in air conditioning technology as well as technical certificate programs for both Air Conditioning Technician Assistant and Heating and Air Conditioning Installation Technician. The diploma program takes a minimum of three semesters and costs about $6900; the certificate programs can be completed in a single semester and cost around $2570 each.

HVAC is one of the most popular courses at Atlanta Tech. The school overall has a decent student-faculty ratio, at 17:1, but the graduation rate is a low 42%. Overall, it’s considered kind of a middle-of-the-road choice that’s reasonably affordable and an average education.

Another option is Central Georgia Technical College, which has several campuses. It also offers a diploma in Air Conditioning Technology, which requires 51 credits – or about 3 full-time semesters., as well as three technical certificates:

  • Air Conditioning Electrical Technician – 12 credits requires
  • Air Conditioning Residential Technician – 16 credits required
  • Air Conditioning Technician Assistant – 12 credits requires

The technical certificate programs can be completed in one semester if you want to study full time.

One of the most/liked features at Central Georgia is the ability to take some classes online. An in-state student can expect to pay a reasonable $89 per credit hour, or $1335 for 15 or more credit hours in a semester. The student-teacher ratio is similar to Atlanta Tech, around 17:1, and a graduation rate for full-time students is around 46%.

Another popular HVAC/R school in Georgia is the Interactive College of Technology. While there are three Georgia campuses, this particular program is only available in Chamblee. Finishing the ICT program means you’ll have attained the North American Technician Excellence (NATE) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certifications. The program also includes a 135-hour externship to gain experience in the field, not just the classroom.

ICT helps with job placements, so it reports a 100% graduation rate and 100% job placement rate for graduates. HVAC/R is the most popular program here. The student-faculty ratio isn’t great, at 25:1, and the cost for full-time study seem higher than in many other programs. But it’s still rated as an above-average bargain.
