With the barrage of storms that Massachusetts was slammed with over the past few months, it still feels like we are hardly out of the woods just yet. However, it is about time to start talking about air conditioning once again. Maintaining a proper HVAC system is integral for a conducive work environment in any business, and many companies run into problems with their commercial HVAC system over time.
The US Small Business Association (SBA) states that “these [HVAC] systems account for approximately 40% of the electricity used in commercial buildings.” Therefore, it is important that businesses that need HVAC repair work receive the best-trained technicians for the job.
Bay State School of Technology offers a Domestic Refrigeration & Air Conditioning course. In this course, Bay State students utilize the school’s tried and true “Hands-On” training program to learn the basics of refrigeration and air conditioning theory. Students spend half of their time learning the theory in the classroom, and the other half is spent actually applying the theory in workshops conducted by experienced instructors.
After graduating from our Domestic Refrigeration & Air Conditioning course, students are ready to enter the workforce world as entry level technicians. Oftentimes, graduates of the program will start their careers with large and successful servicing organizations like General Electric or Sears. Other graduates will join independent local companies that are smaller in size. Most will continue on to Bay State’s Commercial HVACR program where they learn about the bigger commercial HVAC units, chillers, walk-in refrigerators, and Massachusetts Refrigeration and Electrical Code.
Following a few years in the field, some graduates start up their own businesses once they have gained sufficient experience with the vast range of models. Employers will frequently come to Bay State in order to take on graduates in their own businesses.
