CHICAGO - Coyne American Institute will open two downtown Chicago locations for its vocational training programs, including HVACR. The locations, at 230 West Monroe and 330 North Green St., will enable Coyne to increase enrollment capacity and expand course offerings including more equipment labs for hands-on training.

Coyne was founded in 1899 as an electrical training school. Since then, Coyne has expanded course offerings to include electrical maintenance, electronics, computer repair, television service and repair, air conditioning, refrigeration, 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 is currently enrolling students at the Monroe facility and will begin enrollment at the Green facility, currently under construction, in December 2004. The school's current location at 1235 West Fullerton will close once the facility on Green Street is open.
