About Our Program

The Arizona Academy of Air Conditioning  is a 6-week intensive specialized program that provides on site training, one on one in the field experience, learning in a classroom setting and mentoring by senior technicians. You are going to learn the technical knowledge that is the foundation of this industry, as well as the skills required to professionally service residential and commercial customers. Our program will provide you with real resume experience to jump start your career.


Once you have completed all courses ... your training will begin at the J.R. Perkins Heating & Cooling company, which has been operating as an HVAC company since 1960. J.R. Perkins was founded by Jack Perkins and is the longest running HVAC company in the East Valley. Your day will be split between classroom training and one on one field experience applying your training  in real customers homes. All of our technicians in training will be paired with a senior technician for weekly ride-a-longs that will provide each of you with real life experience where the real training begins.

Real training. Hands on. Mentor ship from senior technicians.
