    All of our instructors are qualified and licensed in the HVAC community. Many own their own businesses or work for other companies. They are truly passionate about the work they do and freely hand their knowledge over to their students. They pay attention to their students, answer their questions readily and will take whatever time is necessary to be understood.

    Hands on training is a large portion of our classes. Since the classes are small, there is plenty of opportunity for each student to spend as much time as needed on equipment to learn the skills needed in the field. Graduates leave our school “truck ready”, licensed and capable of working on their own. Many companies hire our grads based on that fact that they attended Great Lakes alone!

    Our goal is to give students the information required to be successful heating and cooling technicians.
