What Trainees Say

Being unhappy with the direction of my life and career choice I decided to go back to school. Under the guidance of my brother who is also a Graduate of The Refrigeration Institute and a Licensed Operating Engineer, it led me to Mr. Talty. Now I’m proud of my accomplishment - a licensed Operating Engineer with a career that is so rewarding and with so many opportunities and avenues to choose from. Thank you Mr. Talty and Staff!

I could not be happier with the results of graduating from The Refrigeration Institute. The program enabled me to change careers….in my mid 40s! Frank’s program provided me with the knowledge to secure the credentials needed to begin a career as a refrigeration engineer. The foundation was also provided to ensure it was successful. Currently I am part of the engineering team at a world-renowned hospital where the entire team as well as our supervisor, are graduates of The Refrigeration Institute.

Chris Michaels

Attending classes at The Refrigeration Institute has truly changed my life for the better and has opened endless doors of opportunity. I successfully completed 2 full courses and was able to receive a top-tier education from some of the finest educators within the NYS Career Schools Sector. With the skills and experience I gained at The Refrigeration Institute, I secured employment with New York City’s most reliable mechanical contractor. I am extremely thankful for the educational experience I was given at TRI and can guarantee that any expectations will be exceeded.

At 58 years old and having had nothing but dead-end jobs, I heard about The Refrigeration Institute and decided to give it a try. I have not looked back. They trained me well and helped me find a rewarding position that I have now held for almost 7 years. The Refrigeration Institute salvaged my life!

Coming to The Refrigeration Institute changed my life for the better, from the small classes to the amazing and helpful staff, they were there for me every step of the way. Their hands-on training, preparation, and the available one on one learning help me to achieve my Refrigerating System Operating Engineer License. My favorite part of the Institute had to be the close relations that the instructors, office staff, and even the owner Frank Talty and his wife built with you. All this has led me to a dream union position at the prestigious NYU Langone, and therefore I will always be forever grateful for paving a path to my bright future.

When I came to The Refrigeration Institute, I went just to get my Universal Certificate. I was in a low paying, go no-where job as an “engineer” in a hotel. After Frank’s tour of the school, I enrolled. That proved to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It was an investment in my future. The diploma and license are great on a resume, but more than that, I learned that hard work and doing my best pays off…. showing up on time every day after work, taking notes, and studying etc. …all this was foreign to someone whose life was defined by doing things half-assed, cutting corners, and doing the bare minimum to get by. TRI changed that. The school and the lessons learned (especially the ones not graded) led me to a well-paying, recession proof career as a Plant Operator in a hospital. I learned that I am a good student, and I AM smart, and I CAN achieve…. Thoughts are things…remember that and do the right thing, even when no-one is looking and that dream job can be yours too!
