In collaboration with NYC Technical College, the Murphy Institute offers members of Local 94 (International Union of Operating Engineers) an associate’s degree program in Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC). Members who have completed the union’s training program are awarded 15 college credits toward the degree. Like other workforce development programs of the Murphy Institute, the HVAC program combines specialized technical education with liberal arts study for workers in rapidly changing industries where advancement requires new skills and knowledge. The Local 94 Training Fund will provide tuition support for up to 30 credits toward the associate’s degree.
Local 94 members can apply credits earned in the HVAC program toward a Bachelor of Science in Facilities Management, offered at New York City College of Technology (City Tech). This program provides state-of-the art training as well as the credentials necessary for occupational advancement.
