Our accreditation means that at IBT you will get an education and training you can trust. All of IBT’s programs prepare students to test for nationally- recognized industry certifications upon graduation. These certifications demonstrate your knowledge and skills and can help get you hired. IBT’s HVAC program is an accredited program that prepares graduates to test for industry certifications such as the EPA ESCO certification, HVAC-Excellence, OSHA 10 and the 410A.
- Limited class sizes, Individualized instruction, Experienced faculty.
When you learn a specialized trade such as HVAC, you need individual attention and support.

Our HVAC instructors are experienced in the trade, and offer students real-world expertise that makes a real difference to their training. Limited class sizes mean every student benefits from individualized instruction.

- Short Program Lengths and Flexible Schedules.
At IBT, we know our students are busy people. Many of our students juggle school with part-time or even full-time jobs, and others balance their training with family responsibilities. IBT offers flexible scheduling, with day and evening courses to accommodate our students’ busy schedules.
IBT also understands the importance of short program lengths. We want our students to get the training they need to quickly enter the workforce and earn a better living. Most of IBT’s programs can be completed in less than one year, and the HVAC program can be completed in as few as 10.5 months.
