Review Thomas Nelson Community College
The williamsburg campus is wonderful. It is small though. If possible, try to take any and all classes at that campus; Hampton feels dirty. Hampton has low ceilings, dingy paint, small desks; it's more like a middle school then a college. Williamsburg has none of those issues; lofty ceilings, bright paint, adult sized chairs.
Being an HVAC-R student at Thomas Nelson is great. All of the instructors are extremely knowledgeable and up to date on the latest industry equipment. There are many training units in the classroom and the split between classroom and lab time is about 50/50. The workload is not terribly demanding however, if the basics of refrigeration and thermodynamics are not understood then failure is inevitable. Part of the associates degree requires a semester working in the field and there are companies in the area hiring people from the program every month. Overall I feel that being an HVAC-R major at Thomas Nelson Community College is a great experience.
