Summer classes now enrolling!

The temperatures may finally be on the rise, but as residents of Maine, we all know autumn will be here before we know it.


Summer 2014 course highlights:

  • This summer, due to high demand, we are offering both a day and evening Oil Technician certification class.
  • Beginning in June, these will be the final Oil classes before temperatures begin to drop!
  • August is Propane + Natural Gas month, with a variety of classes being offered, including the two day Operator Qualification, and OQ Refresher classes.

MTEC'S HVAC Professional Certification Program is now enrolling for the upcoming September Session.

MTEC instructors strategically developed this 3 month long HVAC Pro course in an effort to prepare students with hands-on knowledge needed to sit for Maine State licensing exams in an accelerated time frame. For example, completion of the 6 week long Oil Module will eliminate 6 months of apprenticeship time required by the state for licensing! This program will also provide students with nationally recognized EPA Certification, as well as CTEP for Propane and Natural Gas, allowing them to preparedly seek employment in what is quietly becoming one of New England's leading workforces. This program is supported by the MTEC Education Foundation, and students enrolling are automatically eligible for a $700 education grant. This is a grant, not a loan, which means there is no repayment required. To learn more about the HVAC Pro class, including dates, tuition and class requirements, please visit the online registration, available HERE.

Nearly ALL Maine business and residences rely on heating and cooling systems, which means the employment opportunities are plentiful, and the possibilities limitless in the industry. Our program is concentrated, direct, hands-on, and designed to provide students the nuts and bolt knowledge that will allow them to enter the workforce with confidence!
