The Refrigeration Institute

The Refrigeration Institute was founded on August 15th, 1994 for the purpose of making generational change for all our students. It can sometimes be difficult for a young student to appreciate that the work he or she is doing in the classroom and shop today will affect not only their lives and the lives of their children but that it will also have a major impact on the lives of their children’s children.

The food in their stomachs, the clothes on their backs, the neighborhood they live in, the education they receive, can all be positively affected by the knowledge and skill development they achieve at The Refrigeration Institute today! This has been our goal from the beginning and the amazing testimonials from our Alumni over the past 26 years are evidence that all things can be achieved through hard work, dedication, and quality training.
