 I really enjoyed being a part of a learning environment where you can have hands on experiance while learning in the classroom. The instructor has a vast knowledge of every aspect of HVAC that will allow a student to learn what really makes AC and heating work. I learned so much so fast that I feel very confident in what I can do out in the work force. If you really want to learn something real this is the school for you.

 GO TO THIS SCHOOL PERIOD! Eric is a one of a kind Instructor and is very well educated in HVAC. He explains the difference in systems and all accessories in a way that's easy to understand and learn as well. Thanks a million Eric!

 Eric is a great teacher! When I started this school I had little experience in HVACR. Now I feel extremely confident on working any HVACR system. Eric teaches in a manner that everyone understands. He makes sure that all his students understand the HVACR system in depth before moving on to the next subject. Thank You Eric for sharing your knowlage with us!

 This school will teach you all the basics of what you need to know and get started! It was great and Eric was very friendly and helpful. When I first enrolled at the school I was a little skeptical that I could learn about HVAC/R in the short amount of time I was told. I had some experience in the refrigeration field and while in school learned alot more. He breaks down everything you need to know about the refrigeration circuit, heaters, heatpumps, electrical trouble shooting and even ice machines. Great class and I hope that others benefit from it as much as I have. Thankyou, Eric.

 Central Texas A/C school was the most informatable and useful educational experiences Ive had. The owner/operator/instructor, Eric Shahvadi is, not only a highly experienced and knowlegable trade-professional and master, his teaching methodologies and deliveries are, "bar none"; All the school's employees, were/ are understanding to the personal educational needs and situations of each individual student. The school does not only prepare it's students for the A/C refrigeration trade but also, helps each student along the process to achieving thier goals. Eric is a true teacher in every sense of the word. Being a sudent at the school and completing the certifiacation course has helped me grow in my own personal ways. I would suggest and or, recommend this school to any tradesman who is wanting to extend his skills / knowelgde or, to any younger adult who is wanting to learn a gainful trade. Eric is not only an A/C teacher but, a life insctructior/advisor as well, to all of his students. -this school is, "the right choice"-

Subject: FINALLY!!

I had a blast in this class even though I missed two classes due to illness, Eric was nice enough to let me stay and hash out the course afterwards. I finally passed!  His heart is definitely in the right direction, wanting all his students to pass and be successful. It was a pleasure being in class and an honor being a student.

I would like to give a big BIG MAHALO to the instructor and office staff.I had zero none experience with AC and now I know a lot within those 2 weeks.  The instuctor Eric Shavandi is good.  He makes sure that you understand the material so that WE ALL can benefit from it.  If I can come all the way from HAWAII and graduate you can too.  If you want to up your stuff, come to this school its very affordable and worth it. ALOHA AND MAHALO!!!!  Eric and Carmen.

I would tell every person that is interested in learning AC and Refrigeration, to go to this school. I had a great experience during this course.

Subject: Exellent HVAC School

After the very first day I learned a complete refridgeration cycle. Each class was packed with new knowledge. The instruction was excellent and with the small class size and with the 40hr school weeks I was able to quickly absorb and understand the material. I am very pleased with the education and glad that I did’nt decide to go to school for an entire year at three times the tuiton expense.

I have been in the industry for almost a year but never had any training I now know so much more, we covered a lot of material in two weeks. I am four times the tech I was.  Probably one of the best decisions I have made. I highly recomend it.

Subject: Yeah me!!!!!

So I just completed the 2 1/2 week course I didn’t believe it was possible, especially being a woman who has never even seen an ac unit or the guts of the system. If you study and listen to all of Erics lectures you’ll get it!!! He helped me on my weak points and really drilled it into me. He never lost his patience with me which I really was afraid of. Take this course I promise you in 2 1/2 weeks you’ll also be saying “I did It!!!!!!!!”

This is one of the Best Schools I have ever been to. Eric is easy to understand and very complete in what he is teaching in class. He will work with you untill you get it ,if you don’t get it the first time. I have taken two Solar class’s with Austin ACC and I dont feel as comfortable with the knowledge they gave me compared with what I picked up in this HVAC class. This class should be rated number one in any book. I will recomend anyone wanting to get Certified to come to this class.

This 2 1/2 week course was an absolutely fantastic experience! It was an intensified study program where an unbelievable amount of education was taught. The instructor (Eric) was great. He taught the course in a way that was informative, to the point and fun. It was not easy or a given, but intense and complete. I feel I know as much now as most AC Technicians out there and I feel armed with what I need to be successful in the HVAC industry. Thank you for a great experiece! Albert L. Fischer 512-657-1899

If you are looking for a great career, excellent training and a boost in self confidence, Mr. Shahvandi will show you the way ! Eric has been great at demonstrating how you can learn everything you need to know to enter this field or as a refresher to continue in this trade. He is genuine as an instructor and inspiring as person who cares about his students and the material we learn. Don’t delay or you’ll be missing out on a great experience. Thank you Eric.

First and foremost I would like to give major props to our teacher Mr. Eric Shahvandi. He is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He is a bit tough, but that is all for the good. He makes sure everyone understands the knowledge no matter what. The 2 1/2 week course is great. I came in thinking it would be extremely difficult to learn the process in that amount of time, but I was wrong. With Eric’s wonderful teaching method you can’t go wrong. He explains with great detail verbally and manually. It’s not a class where you get a book slapped in front of you and you’re told to read. It is majority hands on. And he teaches things and shows you things about the process that you would never get in a major institution. If you are looking to learn AC and refrigeration then Central Texas AC and Refrigeration School is the place to go. Like I said before you can’t go wrong. Just be willing to learn the material and you should have no problem. Good luck to all future students. Thank you Eric for being such a great teacher!

Subject: Unbelievable

I came to this school with little to no knowledge of hvac. When I was told it could be taught in two and a half weeks, I was kind of skeptical. Now that I have completed the program, I am blown away by how much knowledge I gained through this program. Eric has a method of teaching that can’t be explained it must be observed. I would recommend this program to anyone who trying to approach this field in any way.

Subject: An opportunity for everyone!!!

This training help me realized that you can learn ac and refrigeration in a short time and that it’s not impossible as you would think. The instructor breaks down so you can UNDERSTAND what really goes on and once you get the basics of it, everything else becomes more familiar. And being able to share a class with a diversity of students was a pleasant experience. I gained not only HVAC skills but also knowledge beyond the class (life skills).

Thank you Eric!!

I had a great expirience at Texas Central AC & Refrigeration School. Eric is very knowledgable and really knows how to make someone how to understand the basic concept behind AC & Refigeration. I was a non-beleaver, didn’t think it could be done in 2 1/2 weeks, but here I am at the end of the course & getting my licsience and EPA Certification. Eric really care about how well his student do. How they perform is a reflection on him & his school. So why wouldn’t he want you to SUCCEED. NOW I LOOK FORWARD TO GREAT JOB SUCCESS

I really appreciate the training I just completed at this school. As a working adult, the two and a half week program appeals to me. I feel that the pace enhanced my learning since the material progressed and built on itself from one day to the next. The instruction was top-notch and to the point, and there was little time for my mind to relax and get “cold”. I believe that, from the principles learned here, I can now progress into any company-specific training seemlessly. Thanks Eric! I appreciate your hard work and dedication.

I can say having the oppurtuntiy to attend this school was very eye opening of learning all the techniques and tools needed to be a Top TECH. Eric is very talented and had many ways of showing the correct ways of understanding the procedures needed to be in this field. I can say that this was very rewarding to attend his class and now have the knowledge that you need to get started.

Subject: I was a beginner

When i started this HVAC course I knew absolutely nothing about HVAC. In fact, I barely even knew how to work basic tools. Eric (the instructer) was very patient with my lack of knowledge and worked with me all the way to graduation. I was able to fix my own leaking AC because i took this class. As long as you listen to the instructer and study, you can do it too.

I came to Central Texas A.C. I had been working as a bus mechanic and i just knew i was going to pass this class in flying colors! And that was just not the case. I was the one that just could not get it down. After alot of pushing from Mr Eric i got it down. what ever you do don`t give up a good pay day is just ahead. Its all good now.

Eric is a great teacher and balances book knowledge with hands on training. I came into class with minimal knowledge and am leaving class being very happy with how much I learned. Money well spent in my opinion.

Just finished the course and I have to say it was excellent. Eric is a great teacher with a knack for relaying information in easilly digestable bits that help you see exactly what is taking place, making the learning process a lot easier. There is quite a bit of hands on, and the small class sizes ensure personal attention to help keep you on pace. You will learn a lot in this course (the refrigeration cycle and the electric system that controls it)! 5 Stars! Thanks Eric.

I found Eric to be very accomplished and knowledgeable in his field. he took special time and consideration to be sure that all students learned the material. As for me, I am a foreign student and English is not my first language. Eric was very patient and understanding, helping me to be successful in the study of HVAC. I highly recommend his school to all those interested in HVAC. It was a great experience for me and I know I will go on to accomplish my goals and fulfill my dreams. Thank you Eric and Central Texas HVAC School
