What our Graduates are saying

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!

.

Coming from a job with no direction to graduating from The Refrigeration Institute and obtaining myNYC Refrigeration License, I have come a long way. I am proud of my accomplishments and knowledge in the field of refrigeration and with this training, I have learned I have a lot to offer. So, if you're worried you're not going to do well because you know nothing at all about refrigeration, don't be. You'll be in good hands. Some of us had zero experience in the field, and yet we passed and moved on to very rewarding careers. So, if you're thinking about a career in the refrigeration field, The Refrigeration Institute is a great place to start.

I’m a proud graduate of The Refrigeration Institute Class of 2020 and I had a wonderful experience. It was a tough journey, however it was achievable and well worth it. Mr. Talty and his staff believedin me and because of them, I achieved my goal and I am now a licensed Operating Engineer with a rewarding job in NYC.

The Refrigeration Institute is an informative and useful educational experience. The owner/operator/instructor, Mr. Talty is not only a highly experienced and knowledgeable trades professional and master, his teaching methodologies and deliveries are the best, bar none. All the school's employees are understanding of the personal educational needs and situations of each individual student. The school not only prepares its students for the trade but also helps each student along the process to achieving their goal. Mr. Talty is a true teacher in every sense of the word. Being a student at the school and completing the certification course has helped me grow in my own personal ways. I would suggest and or, recommend this school to any tradesman who want to extend his skills or knowledge and, to any younger adult who wants to learn a gainful trade. Mr. Talty is the best Refrigeration teacher, life instructor, mentor, and advisor, to all of his students.

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!

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.
