The HVAC/R Specialization program at Howard College is designed to prepare the student to seek a Texas State License in the HVAC/R field. If a potential student has been convicted of a felony, he or she will be required to complete the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) Criminal History Evaluation Letter before acceptance in the HVAC/R Specialization program. http://www.license.state.tx.us/crimHistoryEVal.htm
Prior to enrollment in the HVAC/R Internship course, all students will be required to successfully complete a background check and drug screen. If an applicant does not pass the background check and drug screen, they are not eligible to be accepted into the internship course.
The US Department of Education requires colleges to disclose a variety of information for any financial aid eligible program that “prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation.” Howard College is committed to creating an educated workforce by offering occupational programs that lead to gainful employment.
