MIAT Evolves With HVAC Technologies
The technology driving heating, cooling and refrigeration systems has made radical advancements in the past decade. The installation and maintenance processes that these complex systems have undergone have created a great demand for skilled HVAC technicians. To accommodate these industry needs, MIAT offers HVAC career training at both its Canton, Mich., and its Houston campus locations.
After the housing bust of 2007-2009, the gradual recovery of the market increased the need for HVAC workers who can handle sophisticated systems. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics expects a 34 percent growth of HVAC professionals between 2010 and 2020. This rapid growth has led MIAT to shift its focus toward training students to manage new HVAC technologies, rather than simply maintain the old ones.
HVAC systems typically need renovation every 10 to 15 years. But with a growing national emphasis placed on energy efficiency and pollution reduction, many homeowners, apartment complexes and commercial businesses are opting to upgrade sooner, based purely on the HVAC green technologies available. MIAT builds its curriculum and training practices with these trends in mind. With experienced instructors who keep up-to-date on the latest trends and relay them to students, MIAT is prepared for whatever the HVAC industry introduces in the coming years.
With a hands-on approach to learning, MIAT’s HVAC program thoroughly trains students to install, operate, troubleshoot, and service domestic and commercial systems. To see what it’s like be a part of MIAT’s history of success, contact us today!
