PHCC Academy of San Diego

The P-H-C industry is currently lacking the necessary skilled labor to supply all facets of work in progress. Without training, this problem will only increase. The PHCC is helping secure the industry's future. The contractor will be a more competitive force, and the community will benefit from improved quality of finished work.

As time progresses, business owners and consumers recognize the value of skilled PHCC professionals and look for the PHCC logo first.

Educated and professional workers are in high demand in the Plumbing Heating Cooling Industry. The PHCC Training Programs offer the individual a chance to "earn while you learn." The programs combine classroom training courses with on-the-job training. This method of education allows individuals to combine real life experiences with applied knowledge. Students are employed by contractor sponsors who provide on-the-job experience.

Our training programs employ industry professionals as instructors and class size is limited to 20 students for optimal learning. As part of the year-long curriculum, additional subject matter experts and guest speakers offer for hands-on demonstration of cutting-edge products and technology, along with innovative production techniques.

The PHCC Academy of San Diego currently offers trade certification programs for the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Industry, including Journeyman Plumbing Apprenticeship and HVAC Service Tech Certificate. We also provide regular UPC Update classes and other industry-specific courses throughout the year.
