Press Release – For Immediate Release
Grand Junction, CO – IntelliTec College in Grand Junction is pleased to announce the start of a new Refrigeration-HVAC Technician program on its western slope campus. The program is currently accepting enrollment for both day and evening classes beginning November 17, 2014. This hands-on, comprehensive Associate of Occupational Studies Degree program is designed to be completed in just 18 months.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to help launch the HVAC program here at IntelliTec College. There’s a great need for this type of education and training in Grand Junction,” asserts Nate Jones, IntelliTec College’s Refrigeration-HVAC Technician Program Supervisor.
IntelliTec’s Refrigeration-HVAC Technician program is the first of its kind on the western slope.
In fact, there is no training for this industry for 250 miles in any direction. The industry is growing and advancing quickly, and IntelliTec College provides the resources and real world training for people interested in this dynamic field offering a rewarding career.
Students can expect to develop strong computer skills on IntelliTec’s newer, smarter HVAC-R systems and simulated training equipment. In addition, students will receive a comprehensive HVAC-R tool kit with top brand, quality tools. Also, smaller class sizes provide personalized instruction help students practice their professional skills.
Jones adds, “We at IntelliTec College will set a new standard in Grand Junction for what a trained and skilled HVAC-R technician will look like. Consumers and employers are wanting this.”
The HVAC skills presented in this program help prepare students for a growing and exciting trade.
The need for skilled people in the field has never been greater, Jones emphasizes, as technicians retire at a faster rate than positions can be filled. Any building requiring a heating and cooling system demands a skilled HVAC technician to both maintain the system so it remains in good working condition as well as repair it. This means employment opportunities exist with:
- Construction contractors
- Residential and commercial industries
- Retail stores
- Local and federal government agencies
- Service repair shops
“Effective and efficient heating and cooling is in high demand. I encourage people with or without any mechanical or maintenance experience to jump on board to a…career with [many] benefits,” Jones emphasizes.
IntelliTec College In Grand Junction offers hands-on career training in Refrigeration-HVAC, Pharmacy Technician, Cosmetology, Automotive Technician, Business Office Administration and Accounting, Dental Assisting, Medical Assisting, and Massage with associate degree (occupational) and professional certificate programs.
