Florida Technical College (FTC) is doing something HOT and COOL at the same time! FTC is now enrolling students into Spanish-only taught HVAC with PLC diploma program classes at their Kissimmee campus. FTC President Dr. James Burkett said the school’s decision to create a Spanish class came as an effort to meet the demand of skilled HVAC technicians and to accommodate the influx of students in our area from Puerto Rico and other parts of Latin American who are in the process of learning English but still want to be productive and a part of our community’s labor force.
The Spanish HVAC program is the same 17-month-long diploma program as the English-taught program and includes both classroom and hands-on training, but in Spanish. Upon successful completion of the entire 17 months, graduates from both the English and Spanish program are eligible to sit for the EPA certification exams.
HVAC Spanish came about after the success of the school’s Culinary Arts, Baking and Pastelería, and Electrical Spanish-taught programs. FTC will also be starting a Cosmetology diploma program taught fully in Spanish later this year.
