What Our Graduates Say

A little over a year ago I set out to create a recruitment program for a HVAC company based in SE Michigan, we have two offices in Livingston County and one in Plymouth. After getting the basics covered which was to contact all of the local community colleges and private trade schools that offer an HVAC program. It became quite clear where the best candidates with a top-level education and training were coming from MIAT. We could not be happier with the talent and our relationship with the educators and placement center.
MIAT did an amazing job teaching and preparing me to become an HVAC Technician. I would not be as far in life as I am today without their help, support, and education.

STS Aviation Group and Kalitta Air just sponsored a field trip from the Canton, Mi school to Oscoda,Mi. I just wanted to say that we had several fine students come up to our facility and thoroughly enjoy the prospect of several of the students joining our operation. We look forward to hiring and have hired many students from this school and are always pleased with the training provided by this school. Great Job MIAT!

The technical education that I received from MIAT provided me with knowledge of tools, safety, precision measurement, and reading schematics, to name a few. MIAT was a stepping stone to getting on with the Millwright Union. Becoming a Millwright is the best thing I could ever have done. They have an excellent training program and they work for you. You get 401K, pension, and insurance.

MIAT served as my gateway to a career that has allowed me the independence needed to thrive. I have been able to achieve my personal life goals such as buying a house and starting a family, and I will be able to provide my daughter with security and a good life. The best part is, with time and dedication, there is no longer a limit to my career goals and opportunities. MIAT changed my life in ways I never could have anticipated. It provided the skills to obtain a career that fits me like a glove. Thank you MIAT!

MIAT offers excellent candidates for many entry-level demands from our clients. Their course curriculum and certification process allows our team to source directly from MIAT before exploring additional resources. The commitment shown by MIAT’s staff to assist in placing graduates is unmatched by any technical college/program we’ve used to date.
