Michael Bryant, Instructor
Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration (HVAC)

Rockingham Community College’s HVAC Instructor Michael Bryant may be new to the college, but he is not new to training high school and community college students for a career in the air conditioning, heating, and refrigeration industry. For more than 3 decades, Bryant has been preparing his students for a better life.

“There will always be jobs in the HVAC industry,” said Bryant. “Whether in the residential or the commercial setting, having the skills to service, maintain, and install HVAC systems allows students to learn a skill that contributes significantly to their communities while working with their hands.”

There are many career options in the HVAC field such as: estimators who determine the cost of an installation or repair job, installers who handle installation of new systems, service technicians who are trained to trouble-shoot issues with equipment and units, duct layout designers and duct mechanics, and maintenance technicians who are scheduled to monitor the functionality of HVAC systems.

“The community college setting is a great place to teach,” said Bryant. “Students of every age come to learn a trade that can help them have a better life. It is a pleasure to see my students after graduation and hear about the jobs they have been hired to do.”

For more information on the Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration (HVAC) program of study at the college, contact the Admissions Office at 336-342-4261, ext. 2333.
