Our primary objective is to train our students to be Major Appliance, HVACR or Electronics Technicians, but with the basic training we give you, particularly in the areas of Basic Electricity and Electronics, opportunities open up in other fields, as well.

We look for students that are mechanically inclined, good with their hands, and like to use their brains as well to solve a problem.  In most cases, no prior experience is needed.

We tell our students that our training allows them to be entry-level technicians, equipped with the basics and fundamentals to succeed and advance in their fields.  In fact, the electrical and electronic skills learned at Bay State can be used in many fields other than appliances, air conditioning, etc., such as:

  • Medical Technician – Dialysis
  • Electronics /Computer Technician
  • Systems Administrator
  • ATM Machine Technician
  • IT Technician
  • Mailing Machines Service Technician
  • Home Health Equipment Service Technician
  • Toll Booth Technician
  • HDTV Service Technician
  • Mobile Service Technician
  • Network Administrator
  • Copier Service Technician
  • Spa & Pool Service Technician
  • Coffee Machine Service Technician
  • Maintenance Mechanic
  • Marine Service Technician
  • Seafood Refrigeration Technician
  • Compressor Repair Technician
  • Commercial Appliance Repair Technician
  • Frozen Beverage Technician
  • Meter Repair Technician


and many more.

When looking for a career training school, the most important question you should ask is “Is this right for me?”  The best way to find out is to come to Bay State and actually sit in on and experience a live class, with real students and knowledgeable instructors.  You’ll see first-hand our commitment to “Hands-On” training in the classroom and in the shop and lab areas.  We think that after sitting in on a real class, you’ll be better able to answer that question “Is this right for me?”

Over the years we’ve learned that if you like what you do and work hard, your job satisfaction will he high.  Like anything in life, you get out of life what you put into it.  Do you know any successful people who don’t enjoy what they do?  Nope.  That’s why we want you to come and sit in on a class, ask questions, and talk to students and instructors so you can then answer the question “Is this right for me?”

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 course covers the basics of refrigeration theory in terms of home refrigerators and air conditioners.  You will learn about all the major components of a refrigerator and actually put them together to make your own fully-functional unit from scratch.  In addition we will prepare you for EPA 608 and PSA on-site testing and certification.

Commercial HVACR will immerse you in the basics of larger refrigeration and cooling units, electronic controls, ice machines, heat pumps, and more. This program prepares you to work in the commercial side of the industry and provides 100 hours of Massachusetts Refrigeration Code and 150 hours of Massachusetts Electrical Codes.

Our Electronics Technician program features instruction from Basic through  Advanced Electronics, Computer Repair and Networking, Telecommunications Networks, Security and Access Systems and with the “Hands-On” training you will be able to install, test, maintain and repair electronic systems. You’ll also receive preparation for the A+ Exam and on-site ISCET certification.

Our graduates go on to work all over the United States for both small and large companies.  With your Bay State Tech training, you, too, might go to work for GE, Sears, Whirlpool or hundreds of other companies who employ our graduates.

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 life working as a technician in the Major Appliance, Refrigeration, or Electronics field.
