CHICAGO - Coyne American Institute will open two locations, at 230 West Monroe and 330 North Green Street.

The new locations will enable Coyne to increase enrollment capacity and expand course offerings for new high-demand technical fields. In addition, students and faculty will have access to more spacious and superior learning facilities, including industry-leading high-tech equipment labs for hands-on training, and will have easy access to the locations via public transportation and improved parking options, said the institute.

"For many years, the Mayor's Office of Workforce Development has partnered with Coyne American Institute to provide quality job training to the people of Chicago," said Mayor Richard M. Daley. "We congratulate them on their expansion, and through this successful relationship, we look forward to ongoing efforts to help Chicagoans prepare for, and find, good jobs. "

Coyne was founded in 1899 as a premier electrical training school for Chicago and the surrounding region. Since then, it has expanded course offerings to meet industry demand for skilled workers in technical careers. Coyne has graduated and placed thousands of students in industries including electrical maintenance; electronics; computer repair; television service and repair; air conditioning, refrigeration, and heating; and office administration.

"As a second-generation president-owner, I feel a strong responsibility to continue to take Coyne to the next level while staying true to the principles and traditions upon which the school was built," said Russell T. Freeman, president of Coyne American Institute. "The combination of a more conducive learning environment with top-notch quality program offerings will solidify Coyne's position as the premier technical training institute."

Coyne currently is enrolling students at the Monroe facility and will begin enrollment at the Green facility, currently under construction, in December. The school's current location at 1235 West Fullerton will close once the Green facility is open for learning.
