Career Opportunities

This program prepares graduates for employment in appliance service companies which may lead to employment in commercial food services, electrical, commercial refrigeration and the HVAC industry. Many experienced appliance service technicians can start their own sub-contracting and independent business.

Employment opportunities in this field may be found with department stores, factory service outlets, and independent service shops and authorized service depots. Outside of appliance servicing, opportunities are available with companies who service electromechanical products. Many graduates have started their own businesses. To enhance employment, graduates may require a driver's license, and may need to be bondable.
