ROCKVILLE, Md. - The Mechanical Service Contractors of America (MSCA) has named HVAC Excellence as its technical school partner for its 5 STAR Careers technician recruitment initiative. MSCA now includes a link to HVAC Excellence-accredited schools on its new HVAC career Website for aspiring technicians. Graduates of HVAC Excellence schools will be prompted by their instructors to submit a career profile to the 5 STAR Careers site upon graduation. The 1,200 contractor members of MSCA will then have access to these profiles as they look to hire qualified technicians.

“We recognize the importance of a good education for tomorrow’s HVAC service technician, and the schools accredited by HVAC Excellence have met many tough requirements in curriculum development, equipment and tools, and instructor training,” said Barbara Dolim, executive director of MSCA. “Our 1,200 member contractors looking for new technicians can rest assured graduates of HVAC Excellence schools will be well-educated, dedicated workers.”

“Our partnership with MSCA helps accredited schools in two ways,” said Thomas Tebbe, national programs director of HVAC Excellence. “First, it points interested students in the direction of schools that have attained accreditation. Second, the 5 STAR Careers site is a direct link to over 1,200 contractors that are hiring new technicians.”
