  • Jason Langford - Class of 2017
    Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, Service Technician at Chardon Laboratories Inc.
    After many years of hands on experience and deciding to go back to school, I would like to say thank you to Coyne College for allowing me the opportunity to further develop my skill sets. I created great friendships with fellow classmates whom I also learned a lot from with regards to character, integrity, and self discipline. Mr. Donaldson and Mr. Olsen were my most challenging instructors and I gained an extreme amount of knowledge from both. Although instruction at Coyne is quite challenging, regardless of aptitude, the curriculum will give you a well balanced and applicable skill set that will apply to your choice of field. Whether you are looking for an entry level position or beyond, Coyne College is the place to begin your journey! Through the experience of the instructors, support staff and your hunger to learn, you will be successful with the team that Coyne provides. Although not easy, I believe that “anything is possible to a willing mind”.That being said, I am thankful that Coyne’s instructors and career services, especially Ms. Schwarz, has given me the opportunity to find my dream job. I would like to say the greatest thank you! We all have potential to be great! Are you ready for a challenge?

  • Steven Tate - Class of 2017
    Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, Duct Cleaner at ARS Rescue Rooter
    My experience at Coyne College was honestly more than I expected walking in not knowing one thing about heating and air conditioning or being in the field. Coyne broke down everything so well and to the point that after each class that I finished I learned not only a new skill but something new about myself; and that is because of the incredible staff and instructors, and also the other students. Coyne helped me get to where I am today and made me realize you can do anything if you put your mind to it. All it takes is a little motivation and dedication.
  • Mark Sohn - Class of 2017
    Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, Appliance Service Technician at ABT
    Loved the knowledge and straight shooting answers from the teachers in the HVAC field. Learned and soaked up the years of experience from Mr. Rontos, Mr. Lesh and others that left the teaching field. As Mr. Lesh says, "kick the tire light the fire." Build on what you know and keep your head up.
