CareerConnect: A Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVAC/R) Program at Greenville Technical College
Posted by Chad Bullock - On October 26, 2009 (EST)
The heating, ventilation air-conditioning, and refrigeration industry is expected to experience a shortage of skilled labor in the coming years, as many baby boomers retire. In an effort to stem this trend, Johnson Controls launched CareerConnect, an innovative program that teamed educational institutions across the U.S. to help identify, develop, and recruit the next generation of HVAC/R technicians and mechanics. As a program partner, Greenville Technical College (GTC) provides participating students with high quality instruction, real world experience with high technology, and connections to local industry leaders that may result in employment. The program offers Certificate/Diploma and Associate Degree courses in HVAC/R technology and is structured so that the company plays a critical role in the identification, development and recruitment of the next generation of trained professionals.
