      *A second, third and fourth year apprentice must be employed with an AACP member company.

      Tablet/Laptop Requirement:

      *AACP will no longer provide laptops for students.

      Students are required to have a tablet or a laptop for class. We highly recommend that you purchase a laptop (either windows or Mac) to be able to access lectures, course materials, and complete assignments. A laptop will provide the best experience throughout the program. Tablets may also be used, but your experience will vary based on screen size and the specifics of your tablet - iPads and latest generation android tablets should work fine.

      Requirements for the tablet or laptop if you want to purchase your own:

      Operating Systems

      •  Windows – Windows 10* or 11
        •  ***Windows 10 will no longer be supported after 2025. If your new laptop comes with windows 10, please ensure it is eligible to be upgraded to windows 11 in the future; otherwise you will not receive security and performance updates from Microsoft and your experience will vary.
      •  Macintosh – macOS 13 or 14 (Monterey or Ventura)*
        •  *- older versions will likely lose support before you are finished with the program and your experience will vary.
      • Mobile platforms – iOS 15+; any Android OS released in the last 2 years

      Hardware Requirements (Laptops)

      • Minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768; HD screen resolutions are preferred for the best viewing experience in lecture (1920x1080)
      •  Intel® or AMD CPU at 2.0 GHz or better; 8+ GB of RAM*; at least 128 GB of storage
        •  *- systems with less ram may suffer performance issues when multitasking and may be unstable. AACP is not responsible for problems arising from stability issues.
      •  Webcam and built in microphone
      •  WiFi or wired Ethernet connectivity
      •  Optional: cell phone connectivity, or the ability to tether your device to your personal cell phone for internet service.

      Internet Access:

      Internet access is required to successfully complete program obligations. Lecture attendance, watching recordings, completing assignments, and submitting tests/quizzes requires an active internet connection. If you do not have reliable access to the internet, please contact the AACP program administrator to discuss.

      A note on ChromeBooks:

      While chromebooks are attractively priced, they are not recommended for our program. Google has a clear policy of ending device support 4yrs from the date of manufacture (not purchase). As such, your device will likely lose support and updates before the end of the program and be incomparable with course software. AACP is not responsible for any problems arising from using a Chromebook to access course materials. No support will be provided.


      •  Personal security software is highly recommended. AACP is not responsible for the security of your device or the information on it.
      • Microsoft Teams for Work is used for lecture delivery. Installers will be made available to you during orientation. Teams is also available on mobile platforms for devices running iOS or android
      •  A browser is required to access course materials on moodle. The best experience will be found using one of our supported browsers: either FireFox or Chrome. AACP is not responsible for course assignment problems arising from using an unsupported browser.

      Payment Information

      Unless other arrangements are approved in advance and in writing, tuition must be paid in full on or before August 9, 2024 for the 2024-2025 Academic Year.

      The Association of Air Conditioning Professionals, AACP, assumes no liability whatsoever with respect to any financial arrangement between the apprentice and the employer.
