Person inspecting fuse boxLEXINGTON, KY – Bluegrass Community and Technical College’s (BCTC) Air Conditioning Technology program ranked #18 out of the Best 20 HVAC Schools in 2023 by Best Value Schools. BCTC’s HVAC program won the hotly contested prize over other nominees, such as Kirkwood Community College and Trident Technical College. 

Best Value Schools awarded BCTC 18th place based on low tuition, low student-faculty ratio and highest total student enrollment. BCTC was also the only Kentucky school on the list.

“We’re standing firm at #18,” said Assistant Professor and Air Conditioning Technology Program Coordinator John Christiansen. “It’s a point of pride to be recognized for offering some of the best value for an HVAC program not just in Kentucky but across the nation.”

Last year BCTC took home the same award and they look forward to providing even better HVAC training in the future. Starting in Fall 2023, the program is expanding to include Commercial Air Conditioning and Building Automation degrees.

“I congratulate and thank our faculty for their hard work and dedication to student success,” said Dr. Koffi Akakpo, BCTC president and CEO. “Our HVAC program is one of the many paths we offer our community for a better life through education.”
