New HVAC ‘Fast Trak” Program Begins

An innovative, accelerated training program designed to take a new hire to a HVAC technician-ready employee in five months has begun at Skilled Trades of West Alabama. Using a combination of in-class, online, hands-on and on-the-job training, six initial students have been employed and will be paid while being trained. Classes are held five days a week for eight hours daily over a five-month period. Support and funding for this new initiative is being provided through WIOA thanks to the support of the Alabama Career Center and West Alabama Works.
