The men and women attending the MEMA Technical Education Center come from a range of backgrounds. They’re at different places in their professional lives.
Many of our students have just graduated from high school and choose to bypass a four-year college in favor of a career in the trades.
We also proudly welcome many people transitioning out of the armed forces. Working with a heating and cooling company is an excellent way to keep serving your community.
What do all these people have in common? They all understand the value of learning a useful, rewarding trade at MTEC, and they’re all on a pathway to success in the growing HVAC-R field.
At MTEC, we take pride in our world-class facility, with its state-of-the-art hands-on lab space. We conduct our training using today’s high-efficiency equipment. But the greatest asset we have is our driven, dynamic student body. By coming to MTEC, you are joining a welcoming community committed to your success. We will help you tap into your potential and achieve your goals.
It begins in the classroom and lab, where you’ll master a trade, assisted by instructors who are authorities in their profession.
It continues with exam prep. We will ensure that you schedule your exam at the earliest opportunity and provide you with the tools to pass.
Finally, we help you connect with the 300+ HVAC-R businesses that support MTEC and which come to us first when they need new, highly skilled team members. These companies value the comprehensive training our graduates bring to the companies they join. One business owner recently told us:
The level of knowledge they are coming out of school with is impressive, and it’s setting them up for success in the future. We are really assembling a great group of techs and we couldn’t do it without instructors like you and MTEC.” Abby Alden, Lake Region Energy
