Welcome to Champion Technician HVAC Training Academy

Champion Technician Institute is a HVAC Training Academy located in Mobile, Alabama. Our HVAC Technician EPA Section 609 Certification program offers a fast track, hands on, certification.

Champion Technician Institute prepares individuals to be able to immediately go out and perform residential service calls. Once they have learned the proper dress code, internal paperwork and dispatch procedures of the company, they will then be able to apply them in the field while maintaining the standards of excellence expected by their employer. Our classes are limited by design to accommodate no more than 10 students per class or instructor to guarantee this is accomplished. With the help of over 20 individually specialized repair stations, we can ensure an in depth “hands on” course to accomplish our goal. Throughout our program, we will constantly stress the professional attitude, appearance, communication skills and repair or replace procedures of a professional technician.

This is a fast-track program designed to fulfill what I see as a gap in the HVAC industry. We need qualified technicians in the marketplace today, not a year from now. Whether it is someone that has never worked in the industry or a current technician, this course will teach them the basics of electricity, refrigeration, and troubleshooting. They will leave with a solid foundation of electrical circuits, how to read wiring diagrams, tools of the trade, safety and hazard prevention, the basic fundamentals of refrigeration cycle, and how to troubleshoot it.

This program should benefit many individuals that do not have the resources, or the time frame needed to complete the majority of courses offered in this industry to date. They will also receive the 608 freon certification needed to handle freon through our HVAC Excellence or Nate testing programs.

This program is largely successful because of the personal and professional skills taught to the students throughout the learning process. There will be subject testing to verify the necessary materials and skills are retained by the student before being allowed to move to the next subject.

Our guarantee is that any student who attends our fast-track program will have the basic skills to understand the residential service call process, communicate effectively with the customer, perform a diagnosis in 30 minutes or less (average time is 20 minutes) and then be able to perform the necessary repairs (with very few exceptions).
