This event gives students the opportunity to talk with local employers about future careers and expose them to a wide variety of careers in our region that they may not typically know about. Century A/C Tech support and H/R was on hand to answer students questions about the HVAC industry and provide the opportunity for hands-on interaction with the HVAC equipment.

Century A/C Supply and York Donate Equipment to Collin College’s HVAC Lab

Dallas, TX, April 12, 2018 - Century A/C Supply recently donated several pieces of York HVAC equipment to Collin College’s HVAC lab and delivered the equipment for installation. The equipment, which is enough to stock four HVAC labs, will be housed at the Princeton ISD HVAC lab and includes outdoor condensing units, 18 SEER heat pumps, modulating gas furnaces and the controls to operate them.

“It is about community,” said Todd Shadden, Vice President at Century A/C Supply. “Our technician pool has gotten really lean. Now, colleges are pushing people back to the trades. You can go to college for a year and a half and get a job making $50,000 - $60,000 annually. We are really trying to help bring good people into our industry.”

Collin College, which is located in the DFW area has approximately 30 dual credit students and 18 night students taking HVAC classes at Princeton ISD. This donation will make the Princeton ISD lab competitive to any lab or training facility in the area with hands-on training equipment for the students to train on.
