Are you looking for a new career? Are you looking for a career in a field that’s projected to grow over the next decade? How about a job as a 21st Century Technician?
Bay State School of Technology can train you for that new career in less than a year, and there is no previous experience necessary. We’ll train you to be an entry-level technician through a combination of classroom and shop/lab work in our time-proven “hands-on” training. What you learn in the classroom in the morning, you put to use in the shop in the afternoon. We know how to do this because we’ve been doing it for over 30 years and have a proven track record.
It makes sense to look for a career that will be in demand over the next few years. According to the latest Occupational Outlook Handbook from the U. S. Department of Labor, jobs in the HVAC Installer and Repairer category is projected to grow by an astonishing 34%, much faster than average.1 In addition, the median pay for and experienced HVACR Technician is over $20.00 per hour.2 The job growth and pay rates will go a long way toward providing a stable environment to support your family in a very tough economy.
At the same time, our other career-training opportunities, Major Appliance Technician and Electronics Technician, are also expected to see job growth over the next eight years ranging from 3% to 7%, with a median pay rate of $16.70 per hour for Appliance Techs3, and $23.644 per hour for Electronics Technicians.
