Students in Criminal Justice learn the skills required for employment in professions like law enforcement, security, corrections, 911 dispatch, store security and military police.  Criminal Justice students acquire these skills through classroom training and hands-on experience. The Criminal Justice program features simulators to create real-life experiences including a 9-11 Dispatch simulator and firearms training simulator.

HVAC & Plumbing Technology students at SUN Tech learn basic system design as well as the installation and servicing of modern HVAC systems through practice in the laboratory or at a real job site.  SUN emphasizes developing student skills used in residential and commercial installation and repair jobs.  In addition to residential and commercial plumbing and heating applications, we introduce students in HVAC & Plumbing Technology to green technologies including solar and geothermal applications.

Jacob Berge and Justin Snyder, HVAC and Plumbing 2010-2011

My name is Jacob Berge and I am a student from the Mifflinburg school district. For my senior year, I chose to attend SUN Area Technical Institute because I felt that it would be a great opportunity to learn, and study a career I am interested in. I am more than happy to have chosen the HVAC and Plumbing program. This hands-on approach to learning has been what I’ve needed. We have already learned so much just in the first half of this year. I’ve learned to install, repair and maintain HVAC components properly. Instructed by Mr. Snook, with his great help and guidance, I expect to have the skills and knowledge needed to start my career when I get out of high school.

My name is Justin Snyder and I am from the Mifflinburg school district. I have chosen for my senior year to attend SUN Area Technical Institute because I felt that it would benefit me for my future career in this trade. My interest in this field was inspired by my dad’s heating and plumbing business. The training I receive in the HVAC program gives me the experience and knowledge I need to be successful in my future job in this career. This is the best choice I have made for my senior year by attending SUN Area Technical Institute.
