Why HVAC Mechanical Training?

According to the US Department of Labor (Bureau of Labor Statistics), employment of heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers is projected to increase 13 percent during the next decade. HVAC systems generally need to be replaced after 10-15 years, and due to the large number of homes and commercial properties built in recent years, these units will be due for repairs.

With the increased complexity in the production of these units, HVAC technicians need advanced and superior training. Rosedale Technical College can help you get the education you need to prepare to become certified. You can gain the skills you need to find your place in the industry.

I loved my experience at Rosedale and wouldn’t change anything. If you are looking to become a master tradesman or woman, then Rosedale is the school for you… Thank you Rosedale for the wonderful experience!

I’ve learned 2 trades here… automotive [technology] and welding. Both trades have had wonderful teachers, the staff is very friendly, and very well managed all around. I’m very grateful to have gone here, and they are very supportive of us veterans. I would most definitely recommend Rosedale as it was recommended to me.

Rosedale didn’t really… They didn’t do the numbers thing. Which is what I always… heard about tech schools, tech colleges. If you had issues at home, issues with babysitters, attendance… they’d move the world to accommodate what you needed. And give you every tool that you needed to be able to graduate and actually apply yourself in the real world. So they took me from a cook who was a part-time dishwasher, and I worked myself in the automotive field all the way up.


Just the Rosedale name changed my life. Because anytime I tell anybody that I graduated from Rosedale… every time… their whole perception changes… I never would have worked for Comcast if it weren’t for the Rosedale name… I truly know that… Rosedale’s given me life. Rosedale has given me the ability to succeed in life. And I thank them for that.


The employees here do everything they can to make sure you are ready to go out in the field… They will help you find a job. They will help you with your resume… I think the interview class here… it’s very valuable. They teach you how to sit down in a professional manner and talk to someone and highlight your skills… If you take that class and you do really well… you are going to have a great-paying job. And you’re going to have a bright future.

College or military, that’s what everyone was doing. That’s what we were told to do all through… school. When I came… to Rosedale, it was a different type of schooling. Because they are actually interested in what you’re learning… You’re not just being forced different subjects upon you. And once a week we are able to get hands-on… do projects out in the facility. Which really gave you a leg up when you went into interviews and they asked you ‘Now do you have any experience?
