UTI expands HVACR programs to meet growing industry demands

The expansions, which include two new programs, are already taking students at UTI’s Avondale and Long Beach campuses. The programs will also be introduced at UTI Bloomfield and UTI-Sacramento, in addition to UTI-Austin, NASCAR Technical Institute, MIAT-Canton, and MIAT-Houston.

Universal Technical Institute (UTI), a leading workforce solutions education provider, continues to implement its development, diversification, and optimization strategy with the introduction of novel HVACR programs by its Universal Technical Institute division.

Two of the four HVACR program expansions introduced last autumn are already accepting students at the UTI-Avondale and UTI-Long Beach campuses, with classes set to begin in June and July, respectively. HVACR programs will also be launched at UTI Bloomfield and UTI-Sacramento (Calif.), in addition to those now provided at UTI-Austin (Texas), NASCAR Technical Institute, MIAT-Canton (Mich.), and MIAT-Houston.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers is expected to grow 6 percent between 2022 and 2032, faster than the average for all occupations, highlighting the need for technicians who support the systems that control air quality and temperature in residential, commercial, and industrial settings.

“The need for trained HVACR technicians is a necessity given the wide range in extreme temperatures experienced across the country and the impact on homes and businesses.  By leveraging our existing campus footprint, we are able to quickly expand these training programs in response to industry demand,” said Tracy Lorenz, president of the UTI division.

The nine-month program covers air handling and hydronics, AC and DC circuits and components, sheet metal ducting, vent system selection and installation, and mechanical and electronic control problems.
