At MEMA Technical Education Center, we provide training to students of different backgrounds and ages. Many are just starting their professional development. Others are making the significant choice to change career tracks. Opportunities in the HVAC-R sector are fantastic, and MTEC wants to help you receive the training you need without overstretching your finances.

At any given time, between 30% and 50% of MTEC’s students are receiving some form of financial assistance!

Here are a few resources we recommend if you need financial support to attend our programs.

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs — GI Bill®

So many of our students have come from the armed services. The HVAC-R industry is a seamless fit for veterans looking to continue serving the communities around them.

Nearly all MTEC programs are approved for the use of GI Bill benefits. We encourage veterans of all service backgrounds to apply!

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government website.

MTEC makes it easy to earn while you learn!

Are you still concerned about your financial status? We appreciate that students have obligations outside of our training programs, including day jobs. That’s why we offer evening classes, so you can continue working while you receive your education. We can also help you arrange affordable lodging while enrolled.

And unlike courses at a four-year university program or community college, MTEC’s programs can be completed in a few weeks. It’s the fast track to a secure, rewarding career!
