RSI Teaches Solar Technology
The Refrigeration School, Inc (RSI) has offered HVAC/R training in Phoenix since 1965 and we have watched clean energy become one of the fastest growing industries in the Southwest. In a study conducted between 1998 and 2007, the PEW Environment Group revealed that the demand for ‘green collar’ professionals is growing, and Arizona is ranked the ninth in the nation for renewable resource job opportunities. To help HVAC/R technicians and students take advantage of this trend, RSI is now incorporating solar technology training into our courses. This training adds value to our courses involving refrigeration, air conditioning, heating and electrical wiring and also helps increase professional marketability of our graduates.
