The core curriculum of the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Techniques (HVAC) program is standardized and accredited by the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA), the industry’s regulatory body. As a student in this program you will focus on: fundamentals of heating, ventilation and air conditioning, hot water systems and refrigeration principles, industry standardized design practices for residential heating and installation of gas piping for heating or hot water appliances.
You will be exposed to the design and development of systems including working on a wide range of furnaces, cooling systems and appliances. And you’ll develop skills in soldering, wiring and electric circuitry for HVAC and gas installation systems.
As a graduate, you will be eligible to challenge TSSA for Gas Technician 3 and Oil Burner Technician 3 certification as the theoretical and practical skills required to obtain both entry-level certifications will be covered.

This is a good local college with pretty strong networks around Oshawa and Ontario. They even have a decent reputation for applied technical research with loads of support from the City of Oshawa and partnerships with Ontario Tech and others schools (same campus).
Campus life will be more exciting at universities and other colleges, but I was working with a young family when I started my program and that didn't matter to me. Definitely an international student body and with new buildings going up it seems there's a lot of growth happening.
The most important thing for me was that they had great profs who cared about my success and made introductions for me to industry. Overall, very happy with my decision.
