Building Trades Employer Day

Career Services hosted the first annual Building Trades Employer Day on Tuesday, May 13th at the Post Road campus.  The focus of the event was specifically for the Building Construction, Refrigeration/AC Heating & Gas, Plumbing/Heating & Gas, Construction Management and Electrical Technologies.

Past graduates and currently enrolled students were able to speak with managers and recruiters about potential full-time and part-time opportunities.  They, along with the instructors, were able to make connections and to learn about companies that they may not have thought about as a job prospect.  There were 16 companies in attendance and most were following up with the students and grads that submitted resumes or filled out an application.  We are already looking forward to planning next year’s event

 

Fred Perrin, Recruiting Manager for Dejana Truck and Utility Equipment Company, met with sixth quarter Automotive students on May 13th  at the Access Road Campus.  Dejana has 6 facilities in the northeast and is currently recruiting for the Smithfield, RI location.    Mr. Perrin, who works out of the New York office, spoke with the upcoming grads about career opportunities at Dejana.

 

Clean Care of New England visited the campus on March 18,  to tour Construction Management Technology.  Clean Care, located in RI, visited the campus to learn about the Construction Management program and how grads could  work in the restoration and remediation field as project managers.

NEIT named in Top 10 HVAC programs

We are pleased to have been featured as one of ten Bachelor Degree college programs for HVAC by HVACclasses.org.

From HVAC classes.org 

Getting an education in Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration can be a wonderful first step towards a rewarding and interesting career. While many new HVAC technicians choose to stop with a certificate or a two-year degree, plenty of others want to continue their education to have the best opportunity to enter the workforce farther up the ladder. For these students, earning a Bachelor’s Degree from one of the schools on this list is a great place to start. Represented here are HVAC Bachelor’s Degree programs as well as programs that are natural extensions of a beginning HVAC education, including facilities management and operations management .

At the New England Institute of Technology in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, students can pursue a two-year degree in HVAC. From there, graduates are eligible to continue their studies at NEIT and pursue a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management Technology. Graduates of this program will have a fundamental understanding of HVAC technologies in addition to background in the technologies that are driving global business overall. NEIT graduates can go on to purse a career in HVAC repair, or start their own business with the knowledge they have gained.

Building Trade Day

Meet Sarah, a plumbing and heating graduate from New England Tech.

Sarah stayed home with her kids for years, but when it was time for a career to support her family she found New England Tech’s Plumbing and Heating Technology programs to be a good fit – hear her story in this short video.

Boy Scouts Learn Plumbing Skills

Steve Jason, one of New England Tech’s Plumbing Technology Department adjunct instructors, is a great guy! This past summer he volunteered as a plumbing instructor for several Boy Scout troops camping at Yawgoog Scout Reservation in Hope Valley, Rhode Island.  For the past three years, Steve has been an Assistant Scout Master for Boy Scout Troop 44 from Chepachet, Rhode Island.  His 13 year old son, Greg, is a member of this troop so every July, Steve and Greg spend a week together at Yawgoog.

While they were at camp this summer, Greg decided to earn a merit badge in plumbing (like father, like son) so Steve tagged along to see what was being taught.  Steve offered a few suggestions to the scouts and soon realized that he could put his teaching skills to good use.  The Boy Scout Administration saw how well Steve worked with the boys so they asked him if he could work with more scouts throughout the remainder of the summer. Of course, Steve said yes and continued to help the scouts complete their plumbing merit badge requirements every Thursday afternoon.

Steve had so much fun helping the scouts that he has already volunteered his time for 10 sessions next summer!  By Steve sharing his expertise with the Boy Scouts, maybe he is helping some future New England Tech students.

Nice work, Steve!
