Where should you go to get that new career? Bay State School of Technology. Why Bay State? Because we know where the jobs are.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Outlook Handbook for 2014-15, HVAC jobs are expected to grow by 21% over the next few years, faster than average. Approximately 56,000 new HVAC jobs are expected to be created over that period.1
What this all means is that there are jobs available that are going unfilled because there is a shortage of technicians to fill them. If you’re looking for a new career that can provide you with a good, stable, well-paying job for the future, this is your chance. Even if you have no experience, we can train you to be an entry-level HVAC Technician in less than a year, and once you’re trained, we’ll help you with lifetime job placement assistance.
Bay State School of Technology has a number of resources to help our students get that job that’s right for them. We have an online Jobs Board where employers can post open positions for our students to review. In addition, our students can post their resumes for employers to review as well. We have periodic, regular Job Fairs in-house for companies like Sears Roebuck, Whirlpool, Beacon Properties, and more.
Our Student Services office maintains an in-house job bank of open positions. Employers call us every day with jobs they need filled. If one of our students or graduates is looking for a new job, the Student Services office will automatically send out their resume to interested employers. Director of Student Services, Linda Lord, said there are lots of jobs around. “If a technician wants to work, there are tons of good jobs out there in the HVAC field.”

If you choose Bay State as your training provider, you can choose from a
variety of solid career choice options. In our Major Appliance/Basic Electricity course, you’ll learn about electricity as it’s applied to major appliances using a course-supplied multi-meter and the latest multi-media teaching/learning equipment. You’ll learn how to read a wiring diagram/schematic and use it to diagnose electrical problems. You will work with real washers, gas and electric dryers, dishwashers, microwave ovens, compactors, disposals and gas and electric ranges to diagnose and repair problems.
Bay State’s Domestic Refrigeration/Air Conditioning course covers the basics of refrigeration theory in terms of home refrigerators and air conditioners, freezers and de-humidifiers. You will learn about all the major components in refrigeration products and how to diagnose problems using schematic diagrams and course-supplied compound gauges. In addition we will prepare you for EPA 608 (commonly known as Freon Recovery) and PSA on-site testing and certification.
Commercial HVACR will immerse you in the basics of larger refrigeration and cooling units, ductless split systems, electronic controls, ice machines, heat pump systems, and more. You will expand and sharpen your skills from Domestic Refrigeration using diagrams, gauges, recovery equipment and brazing skills. This program also provides you with 100 hours of Massachusetts Refrigeration Code and 150 hours of Massachusetts Electrical Codes, both of which are required to qualify for a commercial Refrigeration Technician along with other requirements.
In our Electronics Technician program, you’ll be able to work with circuits, transistors, and computer and networking components as well as other Electronic devices in order to prepare you for a wide variety of jobs related to Electronics. You’ll also be prepped to take the Industry Standard ISCET Certification test to be industry certified.
Your Bay State Tech training will teach you how to go from having a job to having a career. We can teach you to have a productive and rewarding career as a technician in the Electronics, Major Appliance, or HVACR field. And, again, the best part is that there is NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!
