The job outlook for appliance technicians is very good, especially for those with the right training. There is a serious shortage of skilled appliance service technicians. LMC graduates work for repair companies, appliance manufacturers and retailers. Many have advanced to management positions, moved into sales and marketing or started their own appliance repair business.

HVAC Mechanic and Installer: $14.73 - $36.79/hour
There are two options for the Certificate of Achievement. The Technician I track requires completion of 18.5 units of coursework, with most of the classes taught in the evening. Students will be prepared for positions as entry level appliance installers for shop tech trainees. Technician II track is more robust and requires completion of 36 units and is mainly taught during the day. These students will be ready for a rapid transition from entry level to field technician level jobs.
The Associate of Science Degree requires completion of 18.5 to 36 units of coursework within the major, plus completion of LMC's general education and additional electives to total 60 units.
