The HVAC Program will be a WVDE Simulated WorkPlace phase 2 pilot course beginning Fall of 2014. Students will learn the inner workings of a company by developing a policies and procedures manual detailing expectations and work processes, setting work quotas, establishing attendance point systems, and creating an employee evaluation policy.
