Lynn Haven, Fla. - The HVAC program at Haney Technical Center teaches students all about installing, maintaining and servicing air conditioning, heating, and refrigeration equipment.
"There's a huge demand for HVAC technicians, all you have to do is drive by, pretty much any of them are posting a help wanted sign right now," said Alex Murphy, Haney's Chief Community Relations Officer.
The program at Haney is 40-years-old. Working with Bay District Schools Haney applied for Triumph money to help them make some much-needed upgrades on equipment and in the lab.
"We are encouraged and optimistic that we've gone through two major steps, and are on track to secure the funding if everything stays on the same track that it currently is," Murphy said. "Within the program they learn to work on models of air conditioners and refrigerators from old to new. Making it crucial to use this money for new equipment."
Some of the funding will also be used to update the flooring and lights in the lab.
