Industry Links Week

Each year, Heating Department Chair Ron Como brings students together with leaders in the heating industry through classroom presentations and site visits during “Industry Links Week”. This year, from September 12th through September 15th, heating students enrolled in the Plumbing/Heating & Gas Technology and Refrigeration/AC Heating & Gas Technology programs were able to visit with several local companies: Heat Transfer Products, in New Bedford, MA, Modine Heaters in West Kingston, RI, and AMTROL, in East Greenwich, RI. During class time, Chief Mechanical Inspector for the RI Department of Labor & Training, Nick Ranone, addressed the class, as well as Henry Roma, Regional Manager for Santoro Oil Company. The heating industry has seen a burst in job opportunities as qualified candidates continue to be in high demand across all trades. New England Institute of Technology would like to thank all of the companies who were involved in making Industry Links Week a success!
