TOTAL TUITION:
    The Oil Heat Technician course has been developed over several years to provide students with the necessary knowledge and understanding required towards becoming qualified technicians in the oil heat industry. This course is designed to instruct students in the proper and safe operation of the equipment. 
    Fifty percent of the course is spent in our top of the line Hands-On lab. Students will be instructed on proper cleaning and tune-up procedures, electrical wiring, as well as service and troubleshooting techniques. This, combined with the classroom theory instruction, will help ensure the student a more complete understanding of the course material in a “real Life” setting. 
    The classroom theory is based on the national standards provided by NORA, the National Oilheat Research Alliance. Throughout the course students will be prepping for the NORA certification and the exam will be provided on the last day of the course. The books and lab fees cover all books, handouts and lab supplies, but students will have to provide their own basic tools. We have tool assistance to aid in the purchasing of tools. Tools are not required the first day of class; the lab instructor will let the students know what is needed.  
    The NORA exam is optional, and has an additional cost of $50. This course, in conjunction with the NORA certification and proper tools, will assist the current technician to progress in his/her trade, as well as provide new technicians with the knowledge and credentials towards gaining employment in the oil heat industry.

"How do I become a New Hampshire Licensed HVAC Technician?"

The State of NH does not have a license for the A/C technicians; however if the systems require any sort of Gas connection, the technician will need a Gas License to work on it. Click the Gas Licensing tab to learn more about the licensing process.

Technicians will need to have their EPA certification to be able to work with regulated refrigerants. This certification is National recognized and a requirement in many other states. Technicians will need this to purchase the chemicals needed and is highly looked upon in the state of New Hampshire.
"What is the EPA Exam?"
This is a certification exam that is commonly known as 608 Certification. Section 608 of the US Federal Clean Air Act requires all persons who work with regulated refrigerants to be certified. We provide this exam at our location but it is corrected by the ESCO Institute. Grades and certification card may take a few weeks to be returned to the tester.


The exam is 4 parts; 25 questions each; Core, Type I, Type II, Type III.

  • Core -A technician must pass Core in order to earn any other certification.
  • Type I -For servicing small appliances.
  • Type II -For servicing or disposing of high-pressure appliances, except small appliances and MVACs.
  • Type III -For servicing or disposing of low-pressure appliances.
  • Universal -The successful passing of all four sections of the examination.

Students taking the A/C Technician course will be prepped for this exam throughout the course. Students are not required to take this exam but we strongly suggest it. This certification is required for the Advanced A/C Technician.
    
Exams can be taken at our facility. We always have exams on hand and you can sechedule the exam during office hours.
