Trane Helps College Create HVAC Laboratories

Trane energy manageHill College Cleburne Technical Center in Cleburne, Texas, has retrofitted a building for new HVAC laboratories to train students to become skilled technicians.

The college restored the historic former home of Walls Industries – a 70-year-old provider of work wear and sporting goods – to house the three new 3,000-sq-foot HVAC laboratories and 16 classrooms. Trane professionals helped Hill College design the new facilities in collaboration with the National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3).

Graduates of the Hill College technician program will receive their final certification from NC3. Trane, Hill College and NC3 leaders worked together on the college’s HVAC program to ensure it meets the latest industry-required levels. NC3 also is training the educators who will teach the curriculum offered in the new laboratories.

HVAC classes are expected to begin fall of 2016 at the Cleburne campus and each of the three laboratories will offer a different training environment, including:

  • Residential HVAC
  • Light commercial HVAC
  • Building controls

Trane also is donating two water-source heat pumps to the new residential laboratory, which are manufactured in the McGregor, Texas, Trane plant. The water-source heat pumps feature variable speed drives and variable speed fans.
