The MTEC staff explains, "it is important to educate students who might not want the expense for a two or four-year college degree programs. An MTEC education will ensure them a job after graduation as well as a stable work with competitive pay. We have been overwhelmed by the support of staff and teachers throughout the state who understand that not all students will find success in traditional education." C L A S S E S O F F E R E D Classes range from Oil Technician Training, to A/C Refrigeration & Troubleshooting, to Propane and Natural Gas Appliance Install and Service, as well as Heat Pump Training. MTEC also provides a semester-long 500-hour HVAC Pro class that will prepare students to qualify for Maine State Licensing in an accelerated time frame. Completion of the 6-week Oilheat Technician Training course will eliminate six months of apprenticeship time required by the state for licensing. This program also provides students propane and natural gas certification necessary for state licensure and EPA Universal 608 Air Conditioning Certification. The full training costs 13,500 and financial assistance resources are available. S p o n s o r e d P r o f i l e
