OVERALL EXPERIENCE
1. What did you like about this program?
Text Response
The fact that you learn about refrigeration, electricity, energy savings, the various forms of
heating, the design aspect, and many other things that are interesting and vital to succeeding in
this field.
I thought this is a great program, it is tough, it challenges you, and makes you hold yourself
accountable if you want to succeed. The instructors take the time to sure you feel comfortable
that you know the information. If you need extra help they are there for you.
Hands on learning experience. Good Instrustors with previous work experience in the field of
HVACR.
I liked this program because of the lab that is located in the school. Not just trying to learn by
someone talking. It helps in future
I liked the hands on learning that took place during the program
I liked the use of the computer programs to compare to the hand written work. I liked learning
about floor plans and using the auto cad program to design .
Great teachers. Fun environment. Staff is devoted to helping students with any questions at
any time.

2. What would you change about this program?
Text Response
Take more field trips.
I would like to see future classes have more opportunities to get hands on experience. Possibly
design and install the HVAC system in the houses that the Woods Tech program builds.
Have more modern equipment to keep up with the times.
Nothing
I would change the program to better fit the hands on learning that people in our field desire.
I think the program is very good the way it is.
More hands-on activities in the second year.

concepts you learned.
Text Response
I am able to aplly concepts of math to my learning but from previous knowledge no new
knowledge is need for my math. I dislike the requirement of college math because no where
throughout this program did i have to do odds, statistics or probability. All 3 are concepts
required for college math yet have no use in our program.
this program definetly helped me understand the math I was learning in college math when I
WAS ABLE TO APPLY it in this program.

It was great
I was nervous to come back to school after 20+ years, but when I returned the instructors made
me feel that I had made the right decision t return to school. The instructors were also very
helpful, very willing to help with things I didn't understand or had fallen behind on.
