Awesome learning experiance.

Started this school not knowing anything about hvac systems. Material is taught in a manor you can relate to. Great staff and Eric is a great teacher. No question is a dumb question.


Great School to attend!!!

I enter this not knowing anything about hvac i feel if work hard and decide myself this experience could change my life for the better all i need is a chance.

samuel nellon

Excellent school! Learned A LOT in short amount of time!

The school gave me exactly what I wanted. I came all the way from Georgia to go this school. I searched in my area and found nothing that teaches so much in so little time for such a good price.

I was not disappointed. I learned everything I wanted to know and more - how to pump down systems, do nitrogen leak checks, evacuate systems, charge systems, install new systems, etc. I also learned about gas furnaces and ice machines.

I\'m so glad I came. I had read a little about HVAC, but had no hands on training, which I received at the school. I now feel confident to go out and start working on systems (and also repair and install my own).

Eric is very thorough in teaching. He tries to make sure each student grasps the material. He allows for questions and repeats the material until students grasp it.

Great experience and highly recommended school!

Bill Smith

Excellent HVAC School in Austin

I feel more comfortable at work now since coming to this school.Now I have more information for Hvac and how they system works.The program for the school is good because
of the hands on and you can see the items and touch the items being taught.Thank you for the instructor and Eric for the opportunity to come to and pass this school.

Great scool learned alot.

Eric's teaching was informative and to the point. He taught me in a very short time the knowledge and the tools I needed to be successful in the HVAC business. He also taught it in such a way that a hands on guy like myself could easily understand.

Christopher Jabsen


I'm a college student, and I can definitely tell you that I learned and UNDERSTOOD more in this class than I did in school. In school, I only MEMORIZED the material being taught but DR. Eric teaches you in away so that you will never forget the information. I highly recommend ANY one interested in HVAC to take he's course.

Telvin Mathews

Very professional School

This school was very good school. Eric is very professional and has a real passion for teaching. I like that he makes every student come to the front of the classroom, and practice whatever subject they are working on. Mary was also amazing, and would answer any questions that we had. 🙂

It was a great experience and a great teacher. I would recommend this to any who wants to learn the right way.

andres castro

Confused customer

My name is Carina and the reason I called was to get some information about a/c units. I have had 4 different a/c contractors come out and give me estimate. All had different prices and different brands. After they left I was more confused than ever and don't even mention the internet. ( I had a headache after my research). Each sales person said theirs was the best and when I told them about the competition they had nothing but bad things to say. To the customer we are at their mercy. I called Central Texas AC & refrigeration school and ERIC was amazing. I explained my dilemma and he took the time to answer ALL my questions about the different a/c units and was so friendly and informative. After talking to him it was much easier to make a decision. If he is that helpful with people who call just for information I can only imagine the passion he has for teaching new students. Eric deserves 5 stars for being so helpful and informative. *****


Absolutely astounding!

Dr. Eric definitely knows how to teach a class. He teaches what other schools teach in 5 months, 9 months, even 2 years, all in 2 weeks! he really makes sure everyone understands the material, and drives everyone to be as excited about HVAC/R as he undoubtedly is. You can see his passion for HVAC and teaching, and he really cares about every student that walks in the door. You aren't just another number at this school. His small class sizes allow for more personal learning, to really drive home the learning material. The hands on training really helps familiarize you with the real-world situations you will encounter in the field. This class is amazing!

If your in the A/C field you NEED THIS CLASS

Eric is an Awesome Teacher the way he teaches and explains the information to you even the "rookie" in class with zero hvac experience can understand and explain it back in less then hour is remarkable. I have been in this field for almost a decade and I have learned so much in this 2.5 weeks. I will leave this school a better tech having come to this class! I look forward to taking my N.A.T.E Classes here soon.

Passion and attention to detail.

I'm very grateful for the opportunity to had Eric as my mentor (instructor) through out this 2 1/2 weeks of HVAC training.

I have learned this material in this short amount of time, academicly and hands on. it woud take me a year to completed this course (38 credit hours) at college or university.

His passion, dedication to teach, and his projection to attention to details is the most important thing money can\'t buy. Thank you Eric!!

If you choose to come and take this course make sure you make time, effort,study hard and FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS!

Three years Experience in two and a half weeks

The amount of knowledge Dr Eric is able to impart to his students in such a short time is rather awe-inspiring. With an extensive background in microprocessor design and the systems used to cool them, he's able to shed a great deal of light on complex subjects and deliver them in a way that everyone can grasp. His ability to build a firm theoretical foundation involving HVAC systems assists understanding during the hands-on activities and ensures that each student has an understanding of the concept before moving on.

The amount of time spent in the lab working with actual equipment gave me years of equivalent experience building confidence I can perform on the job. Small classes foster an open environment where students discuss class topics until a firm grasp of each topic is achieved.

Even as an accomplished PhD, Dr Eric exhibits humble qualities that make learning a joy while remaining receptive to alternate methodologies or approaches presented by students.

I am extremely happy with my choice to attend Central Texas AC & Refrigeration school and recommend it to anyone, beginner or experienced tech wanting formal training.

Albert Alexy

Great schoo

Great school, really learned a lot. He really pressured me to learn. For someone like myself that has never been in this field, it was a great technique to help me really learn. Came here not knowing what to expect and I am leaving feeling like a technician. I would recommend this school for any friend or any one that would like to persue this field.

Ramon Alfonso Garza

Incredible Teacher and teaching style

At first the class seems intimidating considering the length of the class. Luckily the way Eric teaches he makes everything so easy to understand. When you get the first test it really sinks in just how well you take in the information he is teaching you. Pretty amazing going from knowing absolutely nothing about HVAC the day school starts to being very confident on the final after only two and a half weeks.

I would highly recommend his class to anyone who wants to start a new career in HVAC

The man really is a genius and an incredible teacher.

Bradley Dungan

This is a 'must take' class!

I fully intend to start an A/C business in the future and I will require all of my technicians to attend and pass this class. Eric does an excellent job of providing in depth explanations of the way all of the systems work, and will verify that you know and understand the system. If you are serious about a career in HVAC, I would highly recommend you take this class.

Phil Webb

Great School and leaning environment!

I was very pleased with the HVAC education that I received here at Central Texas AC and Refrigeration.
I leave with a greater understanding of refrigeration and feel well prepared for the job market. The two and a half week course was intense but worth my time. Eric has a systematic way of teaching and thorough way of explaining the material. The course books are excellent! Just a really great experience. Glad I came here.

Humberto Loayza

Professional and Hard working

Very pleased with the experience I gained from this school. I feel I have learned easily considering the small class size and the amount of time Eric takes to explain the smallest of details in any question asked. Could not be happier and am very excited to get into the field!

Better than traditional school training!

Having worked in higher education for many years, I was a bit anxious entering an atypical institution. But I wanted a career change and all the classes at ACC were full. I decided to give it a shot and I'm so happy I did!
I learned from a PhD, got individual attention, learned in an open forum with a very small class, books were included, I received hands-on training as well as theoretical principles, I finished in 2.5 weeks and I was required to have at least a 90% on every test. None of these things will you get at a community college or trade school. So the value is tremendous as were my results.
However, this school is NOT for someone looking for the "easy way" into the field. The material is not easy, but it is taught exceedingly well if you are a capable student. I made the right choice and I'm very glad I did.
Don't write off this training as unworthy because it's not traditional. I can guarantee you I got a better education in 2.5 weeks than I would have in 9 months at a typical institution.

Garrett Reist

Amazing school with the most knowledgeable Instructor

When looking for HVAC/R schools/training programs, I searched hi and low close and far. Then I found Central Texas AC and refrigeration school just right down the road from where I live. After reading the reviews I signed up. A 2 1/2 week program compared to a 7-12 month program sounded great to me. And for about 1/5th of the cost. I received a ton of material but it was taught in such a perfect way. The instructor, Eric, really has a gift of teaching material in a way that everyone understands and retains it. Overall this is a wonderful program and one that I will forever recommend. Thank you for your time and effort Eric!

Justin Craig

Best AC school taught by the Best Teacher.

Very thorough and very informative teaching. The instructor and staff are there for you to succeed. The class interaction and repition makes the learning process easy and lets it absorb into your brain.

sean castner

Food Service

Eric and this crew has unlocked one the the true hidden keys to sucess. The school is a great place to start for a rewarding career. Eric covers all the materials that will help any new student know all about AC & Heating. The classes have a great environment, great tools, equipment, and staff willing to lend a hand. The prices will fit anyone budget.
Bottom line, if you go anywhere else foe AC & Heating school, you made a huge mistake.

Great School

texas refrigeration school was a smart choice on my end. I came in knowing nothing about hvac.eric has agreat method and will use what ive learn on the field. im coming out preety comftarble of what i learned. I understand the material and will use it on my future career path.

Great School

I really enjoyed the coarse and learned a lot. I know I made the right choice by coming here. The instructor really makes sure you know your stuff.

Jaime Figueroa

Good fast pace school

Overall a good school to learn hvac. i felt the instructor (Eric) was firm and got his point across when teaching a lesson. i recommend it to anybody who doesn't want to over pay for school and learn hands on training. The secretary Maudi was also a good help to answer questions i had as well as relay a message to instructor when i was running late.

Awesome learning experiance.

This company has really taught me the components of refrigeration and how they each work. Mr. Eric makes it so easy to understand the subject. I Recommend This school to everybody.

Great School and Staff

I have learned alot from Eric. He cares about what he teaches and he cares about his students. I thank him for him caring. God bless you Mr. Eric.

Dario Ruben Perez Jr.

Outstanding instruction by a passionate and dedicated

instructor. Fast paced instruction is designed in a way to be easy to understand and is repetitious to retain learning. It's a much better way to learn than learning a few concepts over a long period of time. Retention over that long period is difficult. Put the effort in to learn and be amazed at your knowledge after two weeks.

Chris A


I had a great experience here, walk in nothing nothing about A/C and in just a few months I learned alot and are ready to take what I learned and apply it to my new carrer. I am very satisfied with what I learn. I would recomend this school to anyone who wants to get into this field.

Nejatollah ZabihI Amrei

Quick course

Eric, our instructor, was amazing. I came in wothout any prior knowledge of A/C or heating and after this course I was able to not only troubleshoot any problems with the systems but also fix them with ease. Great trade school if your willing to push yourself and accept the challenge of becoming an HVAC technician in a short amount of time.

Also thank you Mari, for all the assistance and job interviews towards the end of the course.(She will take your resume and update it and shoot it out to several companies during your course) it hepls the process and honestly brings the school together nicely.

Patrick Stevens

I really enjoyed coming to class every evening even after a long day at work. Mary was always nice and helpful Eric was a great instructor with a structured teaching method that was easy to learn. Fantastic school.

Fast Learning with great understandable concepts

The prof was great at explaning step by step instructions for heat/ac/furnace systems. When class did not understand something he would explain with real life concepts that would make the class understand. Learning how each component works enables the student to troubleshoot the entire system. The teaching metholodgy was great as well. He allowed the students to be teachers so everyone can learn multiple times in short amount of time. If you put in effort then the class will last with you forever.

Alex Rozo

Top School in the Country

One of the best learning experiences I have ever had. Eric's is the second to none with his way of teaching. He make sure you know the theory and hands on as well. I recommend this school to anyone. I want to thank you for bringing out the best in me. I didn't just leave with a certificate, I left with better ideas on how to teach and train others. Thanks again for everything.

You can learn a lot in a short time. Eric makes sure you understand the material. I highly recommend this school.


Rewarding Experience

I feel very capable to go out into the job market and look for a job. Eric has taught me a plethora of information, and i'm just excited to get started and put the schoolwork to the test in the real world! This school is so helpful with everything that you need to succeed, would recomend to anyone looking for an effective and fast way to get your HVAC License.


Very knowledgeable teacher, works with everyone to make sure they completely understand how hvac systems work. Best school in Texas for learning refrigeration and air conditioning.

Most valuble oppurtunity to learn HVAC essentials

Statring the first day i was having a tough time trying figure out how i was going to learn all the information.
Although by the day of the first test it was stunned, it was incredible howmuch i had learned, and i was able to pass the test with flying colors. This school builds your confidence immensly, and by the time you graduate you WILL be confident in what you are doing. Great school and great professor! i would highly reccomend this course to anyone wanting to get into the HVAC/R field.

A Great Learning !

Mr. Shahvandi has teaching skills that even a simple person like me can understand. You will learn at a fast pace mixing classroom and lab, hands on skills. You will NOT be board and definnitly understand all the information quickly.Classes are small and reasonably priced. I recommend this to all interested indiviguals that have a willingness to learn. In my class there are students from 20 to 69 so your never too old to learn a new trade.
Alfred Kager

Thank You Mr. Shahvandi

Alfred Kager


I still can't believe that I learned this much in 2 1/2 weeks. I am a college graduate with a degree in electronics. So I was sceptical when I heard I could become a HVAC tech in this amount of time. I now am a believer. I think it has a lot to do with the instructor. Very great guy who delivers the material in such an understanding way. Not only was the material delivered so well but the instructor would always do his best to make sure everyone understood the material before we moved on. When I was in college I would always have to study after lectures because there was so much I still did not understand. For this course I pretty much did not have to do any at home studying because of how well I understood the material in class. I would definitely recommend this course to anybody looking to get into the HVAC field. This instructor is awesome and is definitely changing lives.

Michael Hernandez

Es asombroso como aprendi todo el prosedimiento en tan solo 2 semanas tomando en cuenta que el ingles que ablo o escrivo no es muy bueno pero la tecnica que el maestro utilisa es increible pude memorisar todo el prosedimiento en ingles la manera enque esplica lo dibuja y lo ensena es absolutamente increible el mejor maestro que e tenido en toda my bida UNA ESCUELA A TODO DAR

Enrique Acosta

loved the class, i didnt know anything about air conditioning but to change an air filter at my house. loved the way he teaches, makes sure that u understand what he is talking about at the moment, you really learn alot and its fast paste, loves that he puts preassure on us so we can be on learning mode not wasting time mode. i highly recommend this class to anybody that really wants to learn something new and really wants to know about air conditioning.

roberto iruegas

very great class , great secratery , Very fast paise class not for SLACKERS!

Dawaun Booker

One of the best schools I have ever attended. The short 2 week time frame gives you the ability to quickly and efficiently learn and retain the knowledge needed for this industry. The instructor is both friendly and strict, but it's truly the best combination. With small 10 person classes, you truly get the one on one time needed if you ever feel behind in your studies.

I plan on telling others about this school, it was worth every penny put in.

Awesome School !!!!!!!

I have never had a better learning experience in my life. I learned the material and UNDERSTOOD it. Eric is a very good teacher. He has a way of training that sinks in. Classroom training combined with hands-on training. Small classes allow you to get one-on-one. I arrived here and didn't know anything about AC or refrigeration and 2-1/2 weeks later I am HVAC Certified Technician. I Highly recommend Central Texas AC and Refrigeration School to anyone that plans on becoming an AC and refrigeration Tech. It is way more cost efficient and it takes a fraction of the time. If your serious about it there isn't a better place to attend. If you wish to speak to me and ask any questions please feel free to contact me @ (254) 721-7836 or if your AC needs repair!!!

Incredible HVAC Course!

I work for the Product Quality Operations department at Nestlabs, Inc, maker of the Nest Learning Thermostat. While I have a great understanding of how thermostats function, my major knowledge gaps were on the HVAC side of things.

This course is invaluable to me, and has already made me a better employee at my job. Eric is an amazing instructor, who focuses on information retention and recall. Eric was great at explaining information, and then showing how that information applies to HVAC systems in a hands-on format.

While I will not be leaving my current job anytime soon, I am certain that I could walk into an HVAC certified position with little effort. I can't recommend Eric and his HVAC school enough.

Automotive Repair

I have never learned so much information and retained it in 2 1/2 weeks . Before this course I had no idea of how A/C and Heating worked. Eric is the best instructor I've ever met. His way of teaching has definitely been perfected over the years. All the information in his class is clear and very helpful. He gave me very useful tools for my future in the A/C & Heating industry. I would recommend Central Texas A/C & Heating school to anyone who really wants to learn how to perform A/C & heating services properly. Now that I am finished the course I feel very confident in ,my knowledge of what i'm about to embark on. Thank you Eric and the Central Texas A/C & Heating School for believing in me.

Adam Algarin
A Plus Mobil Auto Service

Eric is a great teacher, This class is awesome!!

He may seem strict but he actually cares and wants you to learn. if you participate with the teachings and actually study the material you will do good. I never had a teacher or professor teach on such a high level as Eric does, he goes into the system step by step. i came in here knowing absolutely nothing and today 2.5 weeks later I can troubleshoot and repair an AC, Heat pump, gas or electric furnace and most systems. He takes pride in his students. also the cost of the class was really worth it.this isnt a school or teacher that just wants your money. this man has lots of integrity and shows respect for each individual and always has you and your family or (dependents) future in mind

Luis O. Mujica


I came to this school bec. unlike others it has real units to work on, instead of just text book reading.
Eric teaches whats needed, not extra fluff that youll never use. Eric is a great teacher who will give you the time of day if you dont understand something.

My experience was beyond expectations with respect to the level of information taught and learned. Eric is not only thorough but shows real life situations and focuses on what you need to know leaving out all unnecessary information. I have made a great decision coming to this school and am leaving confident when starting a new career within the HVAC Industry. This class is very respectful and informative and Eric has mastered the art of teaching it.

Barry Bruce Bergner

Excellent school, excellent teacher, excellent pay raise..

Started off knowing next to nothing about how the A/C system truly works. Now I am confident to go into the field and know I can fix any problem I encounter. I already have jobs waiting for me to be certified, awesome feeling.

A great setting to learn the HVAC system.

If a HVAC knowledge is what you seek, then HVAC knowledge is what you will receive. I could not have come to a better school to receive the training I needed to move ahead in this field. I recommend to those who seek such training to try this place. The price is great, the teaching is great, and the atmosphere is fantastic.


Learned a lot...

Eric is great teacher, his way of conducting class was very clear to me. I had no problem understanding what he taught us. I would recommend this school to anyone.

Jose Jimenez

Extraordinary School!! With an Extraordinary teacher!

I was unsure about HVAC as a career choice. I didn't know if I would be interested or how complex the information would be to learn. With Eric Shahvandi as your teacher, the HVAC system becomes extremely easy. The course seems long, but Eric keeps an upbeat and positive attitude throughout the class. He motivates you to learn the material. The class is a lot of hands on, classmate to classmate learning. There is never a dull moment. Loved the class!!!!

Gunner Troy Tatum

Great experience

I was able to quickly understand the material presented and follow the lesson plan. Eric was great at explaining everything and very patient, I was able to recognize problems and ways to diagnose the systems i work on by the second day. I am really excited to take what I have learned here and apply it to real world situations.


Great School!

I think it was a great experience and I learned a lot about HVAC very quickly. I think the school gave me the information I needed to obtain a job very quickly.

Central Texas AC and Refrigeration

I came into this course with no previous HVAC knowledge and now feel 100% confident in my knowledge and skills that I learned in the 2 1/2 weeks. I highly recommend this school for anybody looking to change their career.

Alvin Sassenhagen Jr.

Awesome Class, fast paced hands on training.

Kawika DeHart

Hands on training and personal attention

If you\\\'re considering HVAC training, you should consider this school. The hands on training translates to actionable experience. After this coarse, you\\\'ll have a working knowledge of HVAC in both theory and real world practice. Classes are engaging, the material is interesting and you\\\'re not bogged down with the ridiculous amount of specifics that \\\'traditional\\\' training programs give you. You won\\\'t waste your time...not to mention the friendly learning environment. Our group was pounding the books from day one while still cracking jokes and having fun. Want a new career that makes good money and challenges your brain? Then come to this school.

Skyler Madsen

This is a great program. The pace is lightning-fast, allowing a person to gain a tremendous amount of knowledge and training in a remarkably short amount of time. I highly recommend this school.

Robert Witt

two and half weeks of training it was helpful and learned a lot in that short period of time

phil amans

When I started I didn\'t know anything about the AC System

I came to this school to start a new career in AC/Heating.
I came here with no knowledge of the AC system. But in 2 and half weeks I leaving here with a good base knowledge to start a career.

Thomas Rawlinson

good school if ya want to lern

fast paced,extensive coverage,deffently going to learn hands on. over all good school. enjoyed it!! eric is a good teacher and will make sure you undersatnd mulptple different teaching styles.


Excellent fast-paced training program for motivated learners

I took the twelve-day HVAC program, which includes EPA certification. It is fast-paced and I learned a lot. Eric makes sure that everyone knows the material before we graduate. If you take the course, be prepared to study A LOT, to be on time for class every day, so you won't be left behind. This course teaches as much information in twelve days as some other schools teach in several months, and you will pay a lot less.

Philip Wilson

Great school!

Is amazing how much you can learn in 2 and a half weeks. Eric is very knowledgeable and teaches very good, he pushes his students to be the best.
You have to come to school everyday and give it your best.
I highly recommend to take this classes if you are looking to get in the hvac field

Enrique Sanchez

School of Knowledge

I traveled from New Mexico with no knowledge of AC & Refrigeration and leaving Texas knowing how to troubleshoot a gas furnace and refrigeration system, also knowing how to wire a ac system without a wiring schematic. Small classes makes a lot of difference

Service Technician and Installer

I've learned a lot about a/c and electronic components.
I didn't know anything before I came to Central Texas A/C and Refrigeration School. I would recommend anyone who is interested in a new career in become an
a/c technician and installer.

Roel Contreras

Great educational school

You Can Learn Too!!

Eric always has the student in his best interest, and will work with you until you understand the topic being discussed. In 13 days I learned the skills I need to start my career as an HVAC service technician. I feel that I made a great decision when I enrolled in this school.

Todd Weaver


Many thanks to CTARS for their help teaching me HVAC and refrigerant systems. I achieved awesome knowledge retention and skills only years of field training and experience could compare to. My experience is the full time course terming two an a half weeks. The information load alone seems impassable. The instructor makes the course passing at 90% retention possible with an abundance in field relative knowledge. This only backs his unequal organizational and teaching methods. Thank you again Eric and all Central Texas a/c and refrigeration staff for a chance at a career.

Ryan Nissen

AC school

School was very good very good teaching where you understand material.

Nathan Lente

Eric teaches the class in a simple and fun way.he has a great way of using analogies to help you understand the material.its a fast pace learning experience that anyone can do if you commit 100% of yourself to learning the material.i had a great time learning with Eric and Sid highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to get into the ac industry.

Great,Awsome,and Rewarding

I came to Central Texas Ac/Heating school with the intent on starting a new career,since I am mainly a floor guy. I have never known anything about AC/Heating systems and my time here has giving me all the tools I needed in my new career field. I was taught the correct way step by step and it paid off. I would recommend this school to anyone looking to learn by the best.

Levester Milligan
Levi The Floor Guy

excellent school.

I walked in class without any kind of knowledge with cooling system. After 2 weeks, I'm very knowledgeable of the cooling and furnace system. I'm very glad that I came to this school. If I can fix my cooling and furnace unit at home. I'm very satisfied, which I'm very confident to fix my unit since I'm trained.

Pete Huot

very educational

I like how the classes are small. There was only 6 of use in class. The class is only 2 1/2 weeks long. The teachers are very good at what they do. If you are having trouble they stick with you and not let you fall behind. I highly recommend this school to anyone wanting a career in this field.

Thomas N. Steinmetz

Superb teaching methods

I came into class knowing very little about HVAC. Now I know I have the ability to go out with confidence and provide great service. Eric's teaching methods work great at helping you comprehend the material. He really cares about his students and makes sure that everyone understands the process correctly. He makes you feel that your investment was the correct choice. Thank you for everything Eric and Sid.

Great School. Well worth the money. Eric makes sure to structure the classes so everything is easy to learn. Awesome class.

Brandon Ullman

Eric's methodology and teaching methods are second to none. I work for a high tech company and can incorporate some of his methods in my mentoring. I came to CTARS to learn HVAC as it is something I have always wanted to do. Since I work M-F, Saturday is the only day available for me to attend class, so this weekend class was ideal. Great class and facilities. Thanks Eric.


Wow, refrigeration taught in a manor everyone understands...my hat is off to school and Eric/Sid.

I am retired from oil field.. I'm starting my own ice cream business. I have complete knowledge of ref. system. This school is the best that there is. I am sure there is no better school.

Thank you Eric and Sid

David Paul

Excellent HVAC School in Austin

Zaeem Lutfi

Central Texas A/C & Refrigeration school is the best school I've ever went to

I came to CT & learned everything I've could have in a short period of time. Its way better than any other college because the teacher is right there with you and is very hand on with you. I'm certain I've picked the best school.


Great School. Sid and Eric were great. Learned a lot and enjoyed it.

I would recommend Central Texas AC and Refrigeration School to anyone who wants to learn HVAC. Eric is a great teacher with a great method. You learn a lot and very quick and are able to retain the information well through Eric's teaching method.

Travis Touey

thank you for the education

When I started this class. I Had been working in HVAC for a few years out of state. when I was looking for work all the employers asked if I was Texas state certified.
The class is fluid from subject to subject. All the systems that we learn are easy to relate to and flow from one to the next.

Aaron Bevan

College Student

The course was concise and 2.5 weeks long. I was introduced subjects and concepts that I had never seen. The instructor had an impressive education and background. Several students received the motivation and support needed to complete the course successfully.

Norm Smith

Intense learning experience!

Central Tx AC School is a fast paced concentrated learning environment. Dr. Shahvandi is very knowledgeable and presents the material in an understandable format. The hands-on labs are invaluable for on the spot experience.

Momir Radosavljevic

javier changking


Even if you work in HVAC, you will LEARN MORE in the first day here than months of schooling. Mr. Shahvandi is truly a great teacher and I would recommend this class to anyone eager to learn about how HVAC really works.

Brian Spinks

Grade A teaching

This refrigeration school is very good. It is only 3 weeks so therefore very in-depth. It's very hands on, and intellectually stimulating. I came to this school having zero knowledge on refrigeration systems and afterwards I feel comfortable enough to work on different refrigeration systems.

Carlos Bihl

*Intense* Training and Practical hands on training

I came into the school not sure of what to expect out of the coarse. I was skeptical of what I could learn in three short weeks. When the three weeks where up (went by super fast) I had my EPA "universal" and more knowledge than other school that could take up to a year to complete.
Great training and learning model. Thanks to the staff at CTARS (Sid and Erik) I'm on my way to a great career!

James Zell

This was a great school!

This school is a great! I learned a lot in this past 2 and a half weeks! The teacher is great and is a good guy! I would recommend this school to anyone!

Great School full of Information, and a Great Instructor

The course I took was only 2.5 weeks long, but full of information, and we did plenty of hands on with the A/C systems. Not only did we go over a lot, all the information will be applied out in the field. The pace of the class is great, and the instructor was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I would recommend this class to anyone who is looking in to being an A/C technician.

Brendon Rich

Ramon Martinez

Great school , simple and easy!!!!!

Life was so hard coming from a city where violence was a normal thing, Miami ,Fl.Growing up i learned from peoples mistake and followed the wrong path.I made bad choices and really learned that life is really short, and especially having kids. So i put my foot down and started moving foword and found out about Central Texas a/c school. Once they said it takes two and a half weeks i couldn't believe it but i tried. just the first three days i learned so muchi couldn't believe it... what i can say today was the day i started a good life . i thank this school , central texas a/c for teaching what i need to know and defend my self out there in the field .....thk you very much

The Best School Ever

This has been a very good learning experience in two and a half weeks. I have learned a lot of new information in a short amount of time. The teacher here has passion and patients with the students, being that most of us had no prior experience. I am glad to say that anyone who wants to learn HVAC, this is the place in a short amount of time, even though you have no experience. I wouldn't waste my time in any other school because this one is number 1 in my book.


hard but good

it is a lot of information to absorb but it pays off in the end. you honestly get out what you put in it. this class really helps understand and know how the heat and refrigeration cycles work and function. Eric was vary fair and understanding about the way other people learn.

Alan Martinez

Great Class

I started in the day class and got sick for a couple of days and was moved to the night class. The trainers and staff are very willing to do what they have to, to make sure you get though the class. The night teacher Rick was a great trainer he explained everything in a way to make you understand better. Rick even stayed passed class hours to help with things I was having problems with. All in all best A/C Heating class to attend.

Jonathan Thomas Herzog

Kurt Louis Zachmann
Longhorn Village

Thorough training, Excellent Instructors!

In just 2 1/2 weeks I was ready for my start in the HVAC industry! The course was very intense but the instructors made the materials easy to understand and worked hands on with each student. Within 6 months I was interviewing and received a position as HVAC assist at Ercot! Now I'm trouble shooting, servicing and maintaining a wide variety of HVAC equipment including 200 ton water cooled Trane chillers in a primary/secondary loop configeration, VAVs, VFDs, 200 ton air cooled York chillers, 220 ton Trane RTUs as well as Bard units and 2 1/2 ton to 15 ton Carrier splits! Thanks to all the staff at Central TX AC/R for all their time and extra efforts to get me going! My choice to go HVAC/R has turned my life around!

Great school and professors.

Great program I would recommend to any one wanting the enter this field. Great course, professors are very knowledgeable and puts information into ways that are understandable.

Justin Wilson

Great school, ton of information, and excellent instructors!

I really enjoyed the whole class, and got to add a lot of background information to my electrical skills. The instructor is definite very knowledgeable and skilled, but is able to convey and teach the class very well.
If you are interested in AC at all, I would highly recommend this course.

Trevor Lange

Results for the willing

This school gives everything it promises and then some more, but only if you are willing to give 100% for 2 weeks straight. This school requires you to take it completely seriously with very little downtime and lots of studying, and will not tolerate lollygagging. If, however, you are buckle down for 2 weeks and give it your actual best, you will learn more here in less than a month than you will with a year of training anywhere else.

James Avis

Great school, learned a lot.

This school is probably the best education I have seen in a while. Everything was covered in a very thorough manner and each subjects understanding was checked before moving on. This is quite easily the best school in the area to learn this material. The instructors are intelligent and have a very clear understanding of the subject matter. A+ school.

William Pospisil
Orion Machinery NA

Awesome School. Highly recommended.

Great school, learned a lot in two and a half weeks. The instructor helps you out, but you have to pay attention and ask question. Great School. Highly recommended.

Edin Cruz

Great school, learned a lot.

I was a little intimidated at the beginning of this course. Primarily because other schools that offer the same course, do so for much longer periods of time. (9 months at some schools) But the way that Erik teaches is awesome. He not only teaches you the information, but he makes you teach it back to your peers. This type of peer to peer learning really helped make the information stick, as well as create a fun environment for all of us. I made friends easier and had a good time learning the information. I feel that I can easily step out into the industry and start working today.

Jessie Walker

I learned so much in 2 weeks!

The material was provided in a way that allowed for good retention and comprehension. They start with the basics and build on to it in such a way that will have you amazed with how much you actually remember and know at the end of 2 weeks! Great course, I highly recommend it if you are serious about getting into the field!

James Wise

great beginning

eric teaching skill requires complete participation. the hands on teaching will make you study, pay attention to detail which is required in the hvac field. thanks eric.

steve mabry

This course is tough, but at the end you'll know HVAC backwards and forwards. There's a lot of hands-on.

Kevin Kral

Awesome class!

It's an awesome class, the teacher is hard on you but it's well worth it. It is a change of life after you complete the course. And this school is for you if you are wanting different lifestyle and career. I suggest you to sign up ASAP.

Carlos J LLanes

Excellent school, no doubt i will recomend, to any body to take the course

Very good school, i am glad i decide to take this course, i have been working into the a/c field, but now i have learned a lot more. Thank to Eric, he is a very good instructor.

Best life choice i ever made!!!!!
Very hands on experience and a pace even i could follow.

Lavell Rockwell

Excellent School

This is a very good school. In 12 weeks I have learned everything about HVAC even though I have 7 years working in the AC field. As a technician I knew very limited amount of knowledge & skills compare to what I know now that I have finished this class. From now on I can service HVAC systems on my own without any help from. I feel very confident to go back in the HVAC field.

riem vu

Great School

This was a great school. For the short amount of time we got a great amount of information. Eric is a great teacher. He does a great job making sure everyone in the class has a good understanding of the information before moving on.
I would highly recommend the class if you are looking to get into the H VAC industry.

David Wylie


This was hands down one of the best decisions I've ever made. There's no better investment than in yourself and this program gives you all the information and more to help you excel in this field.

Arthur Thomas

Great course

Intensive training, in two weeks you learn how to maintain, troubleshoot and fix AC,/Heating, refrigerators, Ice machine and many other equipment. It is a great value for your money! Thanks!

Sean Bray
Sean Bray gen contractor

Best Decision Ever!

I came into this course not knowing anything about A/C units or how they work. After the first 1st week I felt like my brain was going to explode with all the information and knowledge we had covered! It's exciting to learn at this fast pace when you have an instructor who knows how to make it stick in your brain. I am now completely confident in my ability to understand these complex systems and trouble shoot reasonable situations! I can't hardly wait to start!

Thanks Eric for being an awesome instructor! I recommend this class to everyone and anyone, it's that good!

Matthew Martin

Great place to get started in HVAC

I didn't think it was possible to learn as much as I have in such a short time. I came into the class, knowing almost nothing about hvac, and now I am prepared for a stable future in this field. Eric is very knowledge-able and takes time to answer questions, in detail. Thanks to everyone at the school for their time and dedication.

Mike Stowell

Excellent School

I would like to say that i have learned alot from the instructor.I realy apreciate the opertunity to challenge my self.Eric has high expectations for his students and the way he teaches allows you to get the most out every lesson.I have learned more than i could have imagined. I would tell anyone if you could go to school and learn a new trade give this school a shot. You will not regret it P.S Eric I realy apreciate your patience and your willingness to help me understand the material.

Raymond Duran
Goodwill Indastries

Couldn't Have asked for a better program!

I worked in the electronic industry for over 25 years, and have been to several equipment training sessions this was the best two weeks of training a company could provide for hvac, the instruction was outstanding,very informative every question was answered and the methodology worked with each individual to extract the knowledge that was taught.

Narciso Rodriguez

Couldn't Have asked for a better program!

If you are looking for a career in the air conditioning and heating field then this school is an absolute must! I have learned more here than I ever could have expected! I took the 2-1/2 week course and have been blown away by their teaching philosophy and highly recommend this school to anyone looking for training in this field!

Shannon G. Wolf

Couldn't Have asked for a better program!

2 and 1/2 weeks have gone by and I can't believe how much I have learned! I came into the class with no experience in heating and cooling, or electricity, and after having completed the coursework I am very happy with what I have learned. I definitely feel that this class has prepared me well for the field, and will help me land a job in the industry which would have otherwise been very difficult with no prior experience. Great teachers, overall great experience, but when you come, be prepared to work hard and learn fast!

Howard Bynder

Excellent School

I very happy with the schooling I received at CTARS. Eric is extremely knowledgeable about the materiel he teaches. The way the school is structured makes it easy to learn the material. Lots of hands the equipment your learning to work on and the tools use to do so. Most of all Eric takes the time to make sure you understand what your learning and can put it in to practice once you leave his school.

Richard K. Hamshire
RKH Services

Awesome class!

Had been doing HVAC for about a year now and my boss didnt have time to train me so he sent me here to learn how to do service. On day one here at Central Texas AC and refrigeration school I had learned more than over the past year. The instructor is awesome he makes sure you learn and understand everything fully and his teaching methods really put it in your head to help you understand and remember it. I would recommend this school to everyone who is looking into starting a career in Hvac. This school will put you way ahead of everyone else just starting. 2 and half weeks certification you really cant beat that.

Truly a great school

This teacher was great at everything he taught. All we had to do is pay attention to what he teached us and we get it in our head. I can't ask for anything better and I am really blessed that I got this teacher to teach me things about AC. Now I have the idea to fix the AC and before this I had no idea about it.

Aamir Prasalla

Awesome class!

the way this school teach me is the perfect way to make me understand the everything .

Naser Berenji

Greatest School Ever

Mr. Eric has taught me a lot in the last 2 weeks. i can honestly say that i am in a way better position in life thanks to Mr. Eric. i appreciate the time that he took out of the class day to make sure we knew the material. I had a couple problems with somethings but Mr. Eric didn't give up on me. Mr. Eric is honestly is the best instructor i have had.

Joe Pagitt

This was the best technical instruction I have ever attended. The instructor made the material easy to digest and recall when doing hands on work. I recommend this class to anyone looking to get certified to work on HVAC systems.

Jeff Buckley

Making HVAC almost easy

I have attended Professor Eric's class at Central Texas AC and Refrigeration School. I learned in the days here more than just lessons about Air conditioners & furnaces, my teacher taught us to logically process information in front of us to better our lives. He is in my opinion one of the best instructors I have ever had, because time after time I witnessed him go beyond the call of just a teacher to customize the learning curve to better fit the student or students in need. This experience was truly amazing. Thanx 4eva Professor E!

ABA Appliance Inc.

The only choice!!

To any future students,

I thoroughly scrutinized several schools that offered the 2 week hvac course. I can say that I made the correct decision to select Central Texas A/C and Refrigeration School.

From the first day you can see the difference. Professor Eric is a subject matter expert. Combined with this knowledge is his passion to teach and genuine desire for all his students to grasp the material. Please do not think that memorization will get you through this course. Prof. Eric will test your newly acquired K.S.A. to make sure that you understand the system and how it works and not just memorization.

I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to embark on a new career or really learn how to be an A/C Tech.

Good luck,


Carmelo Jurado

Still can't believe what I learned in 2 weeks!!

I didn't know anything about air conditioners or electricity 2 weeks ago. Now I know all the components of the cooling & heating systems & how they work!! Mr. Shahvandi made all the concepts(mechanical,technical,& electrical ) easy to understand! I now have a professional skill that I can use for the rest of my life to take care of my family!!
Thank you Mr.Shavandi very much!!!

Great School!!!

Very good school, instructor was very detailed with lessons he taught. The hands on training makes it easy comprehend class. I had no experience coming into class and feel like I gained a great amount of knowledge from the training program at CTARS. Overall my experience was great and I enjoyed my time here.

Tejerique Dozier

Great Success!!!

Good teachers and environment. Reasonable Expectations. Great class to start off a professional career, or continue relevant line of work.

Barak Buzzetti
Office Depot

Great School

A total understanding in 2 weeks of AC refrigeration. It seemed fast, but I learned more than I knew more before coming here. There are other ways to learn this material, but this felt like the most straight forward way within a small amount of time. The method of teaching is a military style where everything comes at you once which made the amount of information easier to understand.

Suraj Berry

Excellent School

The staff here is phenomenal, the teaching methodology is excellent and demanding. Be prepared for a boot camp style experience with the lecturer shooting questions and challenging students on their logic and previous knowledge. Anyone can memorize a list of items and procedures where real learning comes is in understanding
the relationship and why things work and don't work. I feel confident in my abilities through this experience that I should be able to eventually continue my understanding of all HVAC and refrigeration system no matter how complex or large. I recommend this class not only for the HVAC knowledge but just for the educational value of the experience.

eric Marsh

It really does only take a couple of weeks!!!!!!!!

This school is exactly what I hoped it would be. It was very affordable, didn't require a lot of time to complete, fast paced but very informative. The facility is full of tools and equipment for hands on training. I am very glad I finally took this course.

Ray Gonzales

Great class

Great class to get basics in HVAC and refrigeration. I learned everything that I needed to get started in the HVAC industry. I gained a lot of knowledge and hands on experience in a very short time.

John M. LeBeau

Very Knowledgeable School with Hands On Training

A great school, with a very knowledgeable Instructor... Helps to make sure the students understand the information, by showing different analogies & visual aids. Even though the class length is only 2 1/2 wks, Eric makes sure that the whole class is involved, using peers to encourage everyone in class. He gives you the Refrigeration concepts, then goes through the Electrical functions of the Refrigeration... Great place to get a background on Refrigeration, for you to be able to go out and apply the concepts in the real world. Definitely would recommend to anyone, especially Equipment Maintenance people.

great school to learn and get started.

I have recently finished my test and the knowledge and experience i have will push me forward into doing the a/c and refrigeration system with confidence on both the mechanical and electronics. The information we learn and also hands on not only tells me what to do but i have physical experience in doing these task to properly troubleshoot systems. Great school for any level of knowledge. thank you for the jumpstart.

Quick AC School

I came here to learn about the AC system for work because it was quick and trust me, this is a quick class and you learn! This is not a generic type class. You actually get your hands on the equipment and I love that type of learning. I highly recommend this to anybody going in to learn the AC for their own use or for their company's use like I have done. The Saturday classes are a great feature for this school.

Excellent Intermediate HVAC School

I really recommend this this school for older people as myself. Having missed the opportunity in my earlier years to go to a technical school and get my license, this is a perfect medium to get your license. Great school!! Love Eric, even though I got my tail "chewed on" a couple of times.

Best 12 days of school ever

Eric, makes A/C and refrigeration look easy. It would have taken me 10 months to do what we did in 12 days.
Thanks Eric and Sid for all your help.

Best school in Texas

This school is the best school in Texas. With only two and a half weeks of training, I have learned more than i ever would going to a two year school. The staff teach you everything you need to know. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a great learning experience. Thanks to the staff members i am ready to start working in the Air and Heat business.

Treven Blu Raglin

Wholesome, informative life opportunity

Great experience with great people

I was some what hesitant about taking a class that only lasted two weeks. When I decided to go for my HVAC certification, Central Texas A/C and Refrigeration was the first site that caught my attention. After visiting the school I made the decision to join, it was one of the best choices I've made. Eric and Sid are great people and helped with my confidence in this field and my life. I cant wait to make a better living with the knowledge I now posses. If you believe in yourself believe in this school.

Peter Ho

Very Informative and great experience

I am very pleased with the way Eric taught the class. His ability to relay information and explain everything in detail was impressive. His assistant, Sid, was also extremely helpful in answering any questions that I and the rest of the class may have had. I was a real pleasure to have attended Central Texas AC and refrigeration school. I have no doubt that the information the Eric has given me will help advance my career in HVAC.
A huge thank you to both Eric an Sid!

Trinity Shull

Good School

The instructor tried to relate the material to real life situations as close as possible.
In 2 weeks you learn quite a lot compared to how much information the HVAC field covers.
Overall a good school if you are willing to learn and put yourself up for work.
If you love working and want to work in the HVAC field this is a great boost for your start.

Llukman Halimi

Great Class with Great Instructor

I can honestly recommend this class to anyone looking to get their HVAC certification. The material is presented in a way that is easy to learn, and lets not forget about the hands on training. The instructor is an acting contractor so he knows what he's talking about. Do yourself a favor and come to this school!

Cory Bentley

Excellent Class and Experience!!

I just want to say if your on the fence about attending this school/ course, it would be one of the best decisions you make! The course is taught very well and with an ease that makes it fun and at the same time very educational.

Amazingly helpful

I got introduced to the school by Goodwill. Ever since then, I can't recall a day without being confused about what's been happening. Lots of help in the form of good instructions have led me to a lead in a new career. The school instantaneously helps you to become successful.

Alonso Perez-Rodriguez

Great Instructor Excellent School

Eric is great teacher and pretty much overall great person.He is very dedicated to what he does and is a people person. Sid is also very knowledgeable and all around great person. Very good school.

Raul Lopez

Fast passed but very eductational

The class consists of a very fast passed learning environment. The teaching style is centered around you knowing exactly what you need to know for being successful in the heating and refrigeration industry.

Excellent Hands on Training

The course at Central Texas AC and Refrigeration School was excellent for me because of the hands on training and practical knowledge gained. The training was fast paced and never let me lose focus on what I was learning. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in the hvac profession or anyone who commonly uses an A/C system. Very useful.

Paul Bussell

HVAC Certification School

This experience of HVAC school has been one of the most exciting experiences I have ever had. I never thought i could learn so much in such a short period of time like i have here with Mr Eric. I am confident that when i get out in the field, not only will I be able to find a job, but also will be good at the HVAC repair industry. If you are up for a fast passed hands on experience, this would be the school for you. I would highly recommend Central Texas AC and Refrigerant School to anyone looking to get into the HVAC line of work.

grandtastical experience

hmmm...what can i say about this experience? the class was difficult but well worth it. the teacher seemed to be misunderstanding..but after one day seemed like a mentor that you can only find once in a life time...brilliant more so than you would think on first meeting and with a wisdom of a father with 100 kids...i don't know how else to say it this class/course is the one you want to take...there is no other school with the same values at this one and with a teacher who doesn't want anything more than to see his students succeed...

Milton James Crayton Jr.

HVAC Certification School

Central Texas AC ad Refrigeration is by far the best school you can ever afford. It's reliable, and quick. You actually learn something you didn't know before and it is very helpful to those who didn't know much about HVAC. Whether you get certified in two weeks, or twelve it is much better than 9 months because you learn something rather than sitting there and feeling like you're not learning anything. Personally in my opinion, 9 months is a long time and I don't think you learn anything helpful in the class rather than twelve weeks. This school has helped me a lot over the twelve weeks and I recommend this school to anyone who wants a certification quick and easy, but also learns everything. I'd like to thank everyone for giving me this opportunity to help me learn and teach me the stuff I need! Thanks you so much!

Charles Barnes

Central Texas Ac and Refrigeration School

This was a great school to attend. Eric was an excellent teacher and really put everything into an easy to understand perspective. The school offered convenient hours, as well as a good mix of classroom and lab sessions. Definitely recommend this school for anyone interested in becoming HVAC certified.

Best school in Texas

I came to this school not knowing anything about A/C heating or refrigeration and now i'm a certified A/C tech. Mr. E has a way of teaching the material so its easy to learn and retain. Thanks to Mr. E and Sid and the Central Texas A/C and refrigeration

Kyle Johns

Really Great School

I came in not knowing nothing about A/C at all but with Mr. Eric being a great teacher you will not miss anything, he goes through everything and with details, but you have to pay attention and be on yo A game and study hard is a very great school to come too worth everything.

Miguel Funes

This was a great learning experience for me and I recommend Central Texas A C to anyone interested in the HVAC field. The training is spot on and very enjoyable. If you want a fun learning environment and experience this place is for you.

Dexter Graber

Excellent Air conditionig school.

Yo he trabajado en una company de refrigeracion por 10 anos como pipe fitter [ tuberia o pipa ] y nunca he tenido la oportunidad de conocer el proceso de refrigeracion correctamente, esta es la razon que me motivo a tomar este curso. Esta escuela tiene el equipo adecuado y necesario para que tu aprendas la teoria pero tambien la practica (mucha practica), conocer tu herramienta y el equipo que necesitas para ir afuera y trabajar con mucha confianza. Gracias Sr. Eric y Sid por toda la ayuda que racibi de ustedes.

Francisco Montellano
Airco Mechanical.

Great School

the only thing that i can say is this school helps me a lot when i came to school i didn't know anything about ac and refrigeration but they helped me to understand the stuff and i'm happy to came to this class and school.
I'm very impressed.

hooman khazei
Central texas AC & Refrigerant

Awesome School!

Just the right amount of classroom and hands-on learning. The instructor has a greater deal of knowledge and makes sure you will learn it. You will leave the with skills to be a technician no problem. I would recommend this school to someone with no AC knowledge. Can't say enough about the great experience I had learning AC and Heating.

Wes Weaver

Awesome Class! Learned so much in 2 weeks!

This is the best and fastest way to get your HVAC license. You learn so much in such a short amount of time. The teacher is very caring and is very proud of his school and students. He really wants all his students to graduate. Every thing you learn in the classroom you do hands on as well so you have real feel of what you will be doing in the field. I recommend this class to anybody wanting to get into the HVAC field and ready to change your life.

Anthony Mendoza

An incredible resource.

I've got to say, I'm very impressed. CTARS is actually more than advertised. The amount of practical knowledge I gained in such a short time is astounding. Eric's method to the program is intense, but it works. You really get a great hands on education. I feel like I have a great foundation for a new carrier path.

Thomas McFadden

Great school!

This is a great school. You will learn here. The instructor will make sure you understand the AC/Refrigeration system so when you go to interview for job, you will know what you are talking about. This school is not just for them making money they really teach you what you need to know to do the job. Instructor really cares about students and insuring they understand. I would recommend this school to anyone anywhere in the U.S. to come to this school I believe it is second to none.

Jamey L. Robertson

Great Class with Great Instructor

I highly recommend this school the instructor is very knowledgeable really know everything about the subject.
The office manager was a great help with scheduling and
assisting with help.
Thank you Eric and Sid !!!

Vitali Pate

Super Cool HVAC Certification School

When I first heard that I could learn everything I needed to know about AC and Refrigeration in 2 and a half weeks, I thought that there was no way that could be possible. But the instructor Eric has a great method of teaching that involved a perfect blend of classwork and hands-on training. This allowed for a smooth learning experience. I would highly recommend this school for someone looking to explore this career.

Dennis Hannusch

Thought provoking

I wish i would have done this a lot sooner. The classes really opened my mind on how electrical systems work and how refrigeration systems work with them. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to get into a field that challenges your mind and expands your overall knowledge.

Matthew Schoen

Great Class with Great Instructor

As an electrician I really liked the fact that the class is small, this gives you enough time to ask questions and be clear about the material. This school has a very nice lab which makes it easy to see the component in the system and have a hands-on training. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to learn about HVAC systems.

Edin Hatibovic

As a 58-year old sheet metal worker, I have installed every component in HVAC systems. Set air handlers, fabricated and installed duct work. I was never taught how to do the start up. In 2 weeks I have learned all the separate components in the system and what they do.
Now not only can I do the start up, I can troubleshoot the system when there is a problem. Awesome course, learning in 2 weeks what others haven't in 9 months or more!!!
The instructor Eric makes sure you know the information completely! This school is not a diploma mill. I highly recommend Central Texas AC & Refrigeration School!! Well worth the cost!

Michael Shawn Hill Sr.

the realistic way to learn HVAC.(hands on)

Central Texas A/C and refrigeration is the only way to properly learn HVAC from the ground up. Mr.Eric is a excellent instructor, tough, take it from me.. I KNOW but he walked me through and stayed on top of me. I know so much about this trade,and have confidence in my education. I know my future employer will have confidence in me, since my instructor taught us all right....just study and don't cheat urself and this program will take you to the next level!!

Darren Cosner

the best training

Prior to attending the Central Texas AC and Refrigeration School, I had very little knowledge of refrigeration or air condition systems. In three days of attending this school I learned more that I thought possible, I think that I learned more in three weeks than most students that attend a one or two year trade college. Mr. Eric is a fantastic instructor he is very knowledge and very patient with the students. I looked at other trade schools, but I am so pleased that I chose this school. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to go to work in the AC and Refrigeration field.

Rudy Villarreal

Excellent Class

This was a good education for me. Gave me the basic skill's for a new challenge. Learning in a group was great. I would suggest it to a friend!

Celestino Mendiola III

Excellent Class

I'm very glad to have taken this class and will refer it to others,i took the same refrigeration class at other school for 5 to 9 months and didn't learn as much as i did here.

Marcus Edward Clark

Very good class make sure you pay attention and things will be great. Walked away with positive attitude and knowledge. Would recommend to others.

Robert Robles

great school

i came to this school with a little hesitation but ready to learn and change my life. this school teaches you great skills that can take you further in life then you can imagine. i really recommend this class for anybody that wants to change there life and get a career.

James Edwards

My thought on Central Texas AC and Refrigeration School

I found the structure of this coarse very beneficial. The information is presented in such a way that after only a day it you begin to memorize it. You gain so much for give so little of your time and money. The instructor, Mr. Shavandi, had a very hands on approach which is hard to come by. His approach made the information very easy to understand.

Michael Wolfe

Great Training

Great training for the real world. Hands on lab. Intensive, be ready to study.

Kelly L. Lacey

I can't believe how much I have learned in such a short time! I enjoyed every bit of it! I want to thank Eric and Sid for all the new knowledge I have learned. I am very excited to start my new career in the HVAC industry .Central Texas AC and Refrigeration school is one of the best investments I have ever made, all I can say is thank you guys!!!

Robert Gutierrez

I really enjoyed my learning experience @ Central Texas
AC and Refrigeration School. I had no prior knowledge in this field at all. I worked in the Health Care field for the past 16yrs, so this was a huge change and challenge but I was wanting something new. The teaching from the very first day prepared me for the very last day. When the teacher cares and is passionate, success is certain for the students who try. I really had a blast and thanks again, for the life long knowledge, Eric and Sid. See ya in the field.
Sean.....God Bless

Sean Colbert

Great Class

What an awesome school to learn HVAC. Eric was very helpful when some of the students didn't understand. Helped me out when I had to miss a day for my daughters birth...


Enrique Perez
PerezCruz Construction

It's a Blessing

I've been working on a/c for about 20 yrs. What little I had learned was merely from trial & error. Coming to Central was not only the best decision, but it gave me the tools and knowledge that I have long for. The best instructor with all the theory that I needed to continue forward.
I thank God for giving me the courage to take the leap of faith and attend this training.

My Lord and Savior is Jesus Christ and I serve an Awesome God!

Armando Lopez
L.A. Maintenance Services

I went to a different HVAC school some years ago, but never finished. I decided a couple months ago that I really wanted to achieve more. I wanted to finally finish my training, but I had to find a different school. I found this one on the web, and I am SO glad that I did. In the short amount of time I've been here at Eric's school, I feel more confident and empowered about Thermal Dynamics then I ever have. I feel smarter than I did at the other school that I went to for six months even. He strips out all the nonsense you don't really need to know, and gets down to the meat and potatoes that you do need to know. It's also no where near as expensive as this other school. I'm an "A" student here because of how Eric teaches in his classroom. You will learn, and you will feel smart. You must study, and have the desire to want it. Just know, you can do this! To sum it up. If you're looking to finally do something about getting into the AC business, or complete an unfinished training, give Eric a call!

Matthew Sivright

This school is great!!
Classes are small, so no one can slip through without full understanding of the lessons.
Eric is a awesome teacher. He has a way of presenting information that is easy to grasp.
I can now say with confidence I am ready to begin my career as a HVAC tech.

Rick P

HVAC Certification School

Coming into this class I had no HVAC experience. First day of class I learned more than ever thought I would. If you are wanting to take a good class with a great instructor this is the class for you. Eric, will teach you the class and then allow you to teach the class. This way you are hearing it, repeating, and then re hearing it from your classmates. I have enjoyed this class very much and would recommend it to others who want to further their education and knowledge in the HVAC field.

Anthony Holder

I would highly recommend this school if you want to learn about the A/C and refrigeration units. Quality of teaching of the instructor is very high and i appreciate Eric to stay here and be a student at this great school.

Eric is a great teacher. Learn HVAC in two weeks, that's great. Recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn about HVAC/R.

Very fast pace but very informative.

This course is a very fast pace from beginning to end. Requires time for studying out side of class.You must put your best effort into studying to get good results.I have enjoyed the class. Eric is a very good instructor.

Felix D. Stone

Central Texas Ac and Refrigeration School

I took this class with no experience what so ever in the field. In two weeks i learned more information than most universities offer in a 9 month program. It is an excellerated pace and can be hectic at times, but believe me when i say, you WILL learn. Hands on was a big help in understanding what the system actually looks like and i expect it to be a big advantage in the field. I recommend this class to anyone who is serious about learning. I do stress the word serious. Overall, a very good experience.

Nathan Carter

The Real Deal.

I have nothing but respect for the guys here at Central Texas AC and Refrigeration. They spend the time and give each student the attention they need to succeed. Their patience is unmatched and with so much information, it is vital not to leave anyone behind. I feel the hands on training was crucial and I could not be more prepared to get started in the HVAC field. Thank you, Eric and Sid, for getting me started on my new career path!

Adam Tanzola

Life Changer

I'm not for sure how many lives have been change by Eric and the classes that he offers, but i know it has changed mine. Two weeks is a short time to learn a new system, and the pace is fast, but Eric is a great instructor who brings the best out of people, and the great thing about it is, he has offered me a career.

Jason Roland

Best HVAC School in Texas

Excellent class and course. Eric is very knowledgeable in the HVAC field and makes this two weeks seem like you've been doing it for years. I would recommend this class to anybody.

John Montoya

Excellent Class

I feel I learned a lot in a short amount of time. The best part was being able to have a good hands on program.The teacher took extra time to make sure that everyone had a good grasp of the material before moving on to the next part.
I really enjoyed the class it was a lot of fun.

Thank You

Monica De La Rosa

My best Class.

Hi ! My name is Ruper. I am very happy that I enrolled here. Honestly I did not expect to learned so much but I did some how. I discover a new way to understand what is AC and Refrigeration.

Hola ! My nombre is Ruper. Estoy muy orgulloso de haver encontrado esta escuela y en especial a mi maestro eric, el cual me empujo a emprender, estudiar y lo mas importante a ser una persona mas productiva para la sociedad.

I will strong recommend this school and be ready to be a very mentally and confident technician.
Dont forget to study every day or will regret it.

Ruper Negrete

I attended the compressed HVAC/R training course at CTARS. I am very pleased with the instruction and knowledge gained. This course is very affordable. I highly recommend that anybody interested in the HVAC field attend this school.

Daniel Arnold

My great experience

Once in a very long time you run into people who operate specially in their field. Eric, you have a talent for teaching and I was fortunate to have come to your school. Thanks

Teodoro Gonzalez


In the beginning of class I didn't know anything. The systematic teaching that was provided to us was very educational. Eric was extremely patient with me. Thank you, Central Texas AC and Refrigeration.

Mario G Cuevas Jr

Misael Reyes

Central Texas AC and Refrigeration school
The two and a half week course is a fast pace, thorough
class that will have you ready for the HVAC field.
Not only did I learn the fundamentals of HVAC, but I learned a few things about myself as well. I highly recommend this coarse.

Dennis Ogle

An Energizing Experience!

Eric is an engaging and challenging instructor....he will make sure that you know your stuff....no cutting corners here....very comprehensive teaching encompassing lecture, video, whiteboard diagrams and most importantly, HANDS ON experience....you will get to see, hear and touch all the material.....from the big picture to the smallest details...over and over again until you get it....no matter what your individual learning style, you are 'spoken to'.....small classes promote student camaraderie and sharing of knowledge during training....full participation is highly advised.....I feel that I now know the material well and am looking forward to applying what I have learned in my career....TIME WELL SPENT......

A very challenging life experience

After being in Manufacturing for more than 20 years, I wish I would it started on this competitive and challenging field
many years ago.

I truly recommend the course! The course is a very hands- on and it does prepares you at its best for the outside true work in this field!

if you want to know air conditioning and refrigeration this is the only school that you actually be one.
thanks for every minute.
Joseph Shooker

Everything is heavy

This HVAC school has been a great experience for me. Eric is a great instructor and makes learning easy with his method of teaching. the best part of it was the hands on teaching. especially for someone like me who has no prior experience in this field. I would recommend this class to anyone.

Rosalio Rodriguez Jr.
Burrell Printing Co.

Great School

I enjoyed learning from Eric.Eric makes sure everybody comprehends the subject matter before moving on.I highly recommend taking this course even if you are not pursueing a career in HVAC.All in all it was a good experience and I learned a lot of knowledge.

Brett Spears
Ut Austin

Hands on and Verbal one on one training.

I have had many specialized class's in the past, this was the best one I have completed. The one on one experience made all the difference in the world. You have plenty of ac knowledge to use in the field when completed this course. It makes it real easy to use your troubleshooting skills in the field because of the knowledge you have gained.

Billy R. Doss

Revolutionary HVAC Training Method. Fast paced and fascinating

The Central Texas A/C and Refrigeration School is a an HVAC training program that has a unique, and in my opinion, profound teaching technique. I entered this school with total ignorance of HVACR and am amazed at the level of knowledge that I was able to attain in 2 weeks. It is however very fast paced and rigorous and appeals to those who are serious about more than a certification, it is designed for those who actually want to be HVAC technicians with a high level of skill and integrity. I cannot recommend this course highly enough. It is amazing in its ability to teach you beyond theory and into actual applicable skill. Boredom is something that is totally absent. It is exciting and revolutionary.

James Valentine

This AC school works at a very face pace. one day feels like a week. it is very important you attend class everyday and actually participate in the class. ALWAYS ALWAYS ask questions on anything you might now understand fully. Eric is a great teacher with lots of experience, getting down to the core about AC units and the various tools you will need. 2 weeks goes by quick, study everyday and if you can watch videos on hvac troubleshooting to get a real life situation of what you learned in class.

Josh Villasenor

Learned an enormous amount

A great school to go to, not for the faint of heart. You will learn a lot about HVAC if you pay attention and push yourself. Eric is a tough instructor but will teach you a great deal and make sure you know the material. Would recommend this school for anyone who is wanting to get into the HVAC field sooner than later.

Benjamin A. Fry

HVAC Certification School

In my short time here I have learned so much. When I first started here, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I had little knowledge of how the Air Conditioning worked, but at the same time i still had no idea. After the first week i was knowledgeable and knew everything how the system works. Second week is when the fun for me started, because i was really eager to get into the electrical part of the school. everything is hands on and small classes so that everyone can learn step by step. first week i was a technician and second week i was a electrician. Wow I still blows my mind how fast and how well you will understand the A/C and Heating system. This was the best decision i have mad in life and very excited about progressing in my career in the near future.

Nathaniel L. Tampke

When you decide to come to this school, you better be ready to learn, you gotta be very serious, you can be doing this for the rest of your life.

Erick is a genius, and makes sure you comprehend everything, he doesn't leave anybody behind, take my word for it. If you don't understand something he will make sure before you walk out the door you understand it. If i was looking for a school, i wouldn't think about it twice, this is clearly the best option for you and your future. When i walked in i absolutely couldn't believe how i was gonna learn everything in 2 weeks but trust me you will cover everything, you will walk out of this door with all the knowledge you need.

Effective Education

I chose to enroll in the two week course at Central TX AC & Refrigeration School. I was attracted to the possibility of learning in a short amount of time as well as the hands on learning opportunities that the school offers. The material was more interesting than I expected, and I was impressed with the amount of information that I was able to learn in just a couple of weeks. I was immediately able to apply what I learned to diagnose and repair the AC system at my own house. By starting off with a solid foundation of the refrigeration cycle, Eric makes sure that all students understand the material to the best of their ability and offers plenty of cooperative and hands on learning opportunities.

High speed training that is presented in a unique way.

Eric has a unique way of presenting the material that anyone can understand. The staff is very helpful and can help with in problem that may arise whether it be locating funding or just working with you on a one on one bases to help understand the material. I would recommend this school over any other if anyone is trying to become a HVAC tech. The way the school incorporates hands on training with book studies, is the best way for anyone regardless of their mechanical skills to learn, understand and retain the knowledge that is needed to fill confident in yourself starting in the field of refrigeration repair.

If your serious about a career and not just a job, then this is the way to go. The instructor will make you work so this is not a give me, so keep that in mind. Stop by and they will give you a tour which I am sure will have your enrolling right away. you really can learn HVAC in a short period of time.

I was thoroughly impressed with the extent of Eric's knowledge and his skill and patience sharing it. He cares about the students truly understanding the systems, and stresses the importance of safety in the workplace. With the variety of backgrounds of his students, this becomes especially important for those that might be working with his students on the job. Any employers or coworkers of his students should feel confident that his graduates are competent, knowledgeable, and safe. Thanks, Eric for your thoroughness.

I enjoyed instructions Mr. Shahvandi. He is a dynamic teacher who roots for all his students. He will also make sure that you are well prepared once you enter the field. There are not enough words to express how he turned me, as a student who was uncertain about entering this profession, into a knowledgeable technician. That alone deserves more gratitude than I can give.

I worked for the past year in West Palm Beach, Florida as a Comfort Advisor (A/C Residential Sales). I wanted to learn more about how systems actually work so I came to Austin to take this course. After two weeks I learned much, much more about air conditioning and refrigeration than I had learned in the past year. Now I can both repair systems and sell them with total confidence. I am very happy that I took this course. Thanks Eric.

This schooling has been very detailed in such a degree that a student can comprehend and put in use any where in the HVAC industry. Mr. Eric has put a 100 percent into making sure that we as students succeed in the schooling as well as being able to succeed in the work force. I would highly recommend this school as the best source in Austin Tx for HVAC schooling. Thanks Mr.Eric for this excellent two and a half weeks course.

Coming into the class, I already had a basic knowledge of how an AC works being in the apartment industry. Within the two week time frame. Eric was able to not only explain how every component works, but made it very understandable and would explain in detail the exact job of each component. After the class, I know have the knowledge and skill set to further my career in the maintanence field. I feel comfortable in knowing that I was taught the correct procedures and safety. Would I suggest this class for new students? In my honest opinion....It was the best decision I have made in a while. I totally, 100% agree, that if I can benefit from this. SO CAN YOU!!

If your going into a career where the HVAC is required, this is the school to come to hands down!

I didn't have much money and didn't think this was even possible for me but after talking to the secretary she gave me hope by reminding me if there is a will there is a way and I scraped up what I could and went for it.

To my surprise the instructor Eric was willing to work with me. I wasn't used to this type of hospitality and knew right then that this was going to happen for me!

Affordable and quick! Eric is an outstanding teacher and turned out to be a good friend. I'm gonna miss it!

This training has opened the opportunity for a career that I have wanted for years and don't remember being happier than this for a long time

Thanks for everything Eric!!

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.

Joshua Linder

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!

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.

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"-

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!
