A.A.S. Air Conditioning Technology
Class of 1991
Acker Heating & Cooling, Inc.
Colbert, GA

"I showed up for registration at Athens Tech in the fall of 1989. I had no idea what I wanted to do in life. As I scrolled down the list of programs available I came across the Air conditioning program. My grandmother had installed an A/C system over the summer, so I thought it would be interesting to learn more about it. My professors, Gene, Carter, and Hugh made Heating and A/C Conditioning so simple to learn. They helped me gain the confidence I needed to pursue a career in the Heating and Air Conditioning business.

Athens Tech made getting my diploma simple by making the curriculum schedules flexible and affordable. I am very happy with my decision to get my education from Athens Technical College. I am thankful to my instructors as there encouragement has played a key role in the success of my business."
