Bill Belichek – whether you like him or hate him, you have to respect his vision, drive and dedication to winning. Why does he win so many games? He has a plan – a game plan. He defines a goal and analyzes what tools he has, what things he needs to do, and visualizes how to get to that goal.
Choosing a new career is a lot like formulating a NFL game plan. You have to have a clear idea of what you want – your goal. Then you need to figure out what tools you’ll need – your skills – and determine how you’ll get those tools – choosing your school.
As part of setting your goal, you should be looking for a field that is stable, first of all. You don’t want to spend your money for a career where there are no jobs. Look for one that’s well paying. After all, you do need to support yourself and your family. You should also seek a career that is challenging and that you will enjoy. The challenging part keeps you interested and the enjoyment part keeps you motivated. There is nothing worse than going to a job every day that you hate. Finding something that you enjoy doing will bring you much happiness.
Choosing a school can be confusing. It may seem like all schools promise you that new career, and you need to make sure they can deliver. Ask about their history and their completion and placement percentages, and then compare this information with other schools. Think about whether you did better in bigger or smaller classes, and then maybe a big school is not for you.
Bay State School of Technology has been training students since 1982, maybe before you were born, so we have the “history” part nailed down tight. Our overall completion and placement rates are top notch and as good as anybody in the field. And because we are a relatively small school, our classes tend to be smaller as well. This guarantees a much more intimate teacher/student ratio which translates to more time with the instructors, and a better understanding of your material. Our “Hand-On-Training” has been proven over and over again to be the absolute best way to learn how to become a technician in one of our programs. In addition, you’ll receive a brand new tablet or laptop to use while you learn the other tools of the trade. And the best part is that there is no prior experience required.
In our Major Appliance/Basic Electricity course, you’ll learn about electricity and how it works; you’ll learn how to read a wiring diagram and how to use it to diagnose problems. You will work on real washers, dryers, dishwashers, microwave ovens and other appliances, as you learn how to repair them.
Bay State’s Domestic Refrigeration & Air Conditioning course covers the basics of refrigeration theory in terms of home refrigerators and air conditioners.
