Acknowledging the possible financial difficulty of attending trade school, Arizona HVAC Education (or Arizona.HVACED.com) urged all future and potential HVAC students to seek out sources of financial aid. This urging came on the heels of Area Development’s article, published on December 31st and titled “New Hampshire Bestows Job Training Grants to Nine Firms throughout the State.” The article revealed the decision to offer grants to various business firms, enabling them to cross-train or more thoroughly train employees. Because of this, Arizona HVAC Education strongly encouraged students to seek out all possible avenues for HVAC training financial aid.
Area Development announced the dispersal of New Hampshire’s state funds, each targeting a different business arena. The grants were offered to nine businesses, each in need of cross-trained employees, or more thoroughly-trained employees. The grants enabled these nine companies to perform training classes and exercise that would not have been available otherwise.
While locating training to get credible certification is the primary goal in seeking out an HVAC school, HVACED.com believes that students should also take a close look at tuition and any financial aid available to students. Arizona HVAC Education realizes that money is frequently an issue among students wishing to receive a degree, as most higher education institution rates continue to climb, while wages and savings rates in America stagnate or plateau. Since this is a real concern, HVAC Education recommends that future HVAC students take a close look at the tuition of several HVAC schools, and request information about any possible financial aid, including student loans or educational grants. Arizona.HVACED.com instructs students to determine the basis of these grants being awarded, including need-based grants (typically awarded according to monetary standing), and academic-based grants (awarded according to past academic performance). From there, HVACED.com believes that students can more easily determine which school is right for them and their economic situation. The Senior Staff Editor of Arizona HVAC Education offered their encouragement, “There are so many grants and scholarships out there that people don’t know about because they don’t look. I highly recommend that you do your homework and research what money is out there waiting for you. The worst thing that can happen is you apply for the grant or scholarship and you get rejected. No gain, but also no loss.”
Area Development is both a print magazine and online forum, comprised of articles discussing site and development planning. The publication is based in Westbury, New York.
As with any educational facility, HVAC training requires an up-front investment to pay for classes, materials, and, ultimately, teachers. Because of this, future HVAC students should conduct a thorough investigation of both the tuition of local institutions and the financial aid available at institutions. While reputation and quality should certainly play a part in choosing a school to attend, students would do well to choose an institution befitting their financial position.
