Graduated on January 4th. Got a lot of excellent "theory" based knowledge, as well as "hands on" training in a lab type environment. Furthermore, they have an "excellent" follow up staff that will assist you in finding a good paying position in the HVACR Field. Also, they, if you desire it, will set up an L.L.C. for you; even designing your own set of business cards for you. They're all "class", "Top Shelf"! I would encourage anyone thinking about pursuing a HVACR career, to at least meet with these people, it only costs you a bit of time to get the "jist" of their great program... 🔧

2007 Graduate Best decision made was to go here after taking the Ford buyout in 2006. Found a job in Texas (Michigan job market was bad at that time) I worked in the field as a tech for 5 years. I took the Texas mechanical contractor license exam. And started my HVAC/R business in December 2012. Business is great.(95% commercial HVAC and refrigeration) The only regret is not going to this school sooner. You get out of the school what you put in. If your not mechanically inclined and a go getter. This school is not for you.

Do not go here. All they care about is your money and Oakland community college is a real degree and way cheaper!!!! Jessica the so called financial aid was very rude over the phone, they keep soliciting you to sign up by calling you over and over because they are so desperate.

One of the best decisions I've ever made was to go to Northwestern Tech. I got a job in the field before I even graduated and I feel like the school greatly prepared me for work out in the field. I never had a teacher or met a staff member here that I didn't like. They are super helpful and friendly. There really isn't a better school for HVAC in Michigan than Northwestern. Not a day goes by that I don't love my job and I'm happier than I've been in my entire life and it's all thanks to this school.
