Master HVAC Educators Uphold the Lincoln Tech Tradition
Lincoln Tech’s first campus opened in 1946 with a mission to serve the nation’s veterans as they returned home from overseas. Located on historic Market Street in Newark, NJ, the school exclusively offered training for heating and air conditioning careers. The industry has evolved in amazing ways over the last 73 years, and its most recent advances have been in the areas of energy efficiency and environmentally-friendly “green” technologies. Many campuses offer training in on-site energy auditing houses where these advanced HVAC skills are put to the test. The Grand Prairie and Mahwah campuses also hold programmatic accreditation from HVAC Excellence.
With more than 380,000 positions projected to open across the country by 2026*, this field offers excellent employment potential after graduation. Train with Master HVAC instructors, and you’ll have the tools you need to help overcome the nation’s skills gap and help employers nationwide build workforces for the modern, technologically-advanced HVAC industry.
