I went to Porter and Chester Institute in Chicopee, MA. I don't know if they are different in how they teach in CT or MA and how they do job placement but the guy I had was great in the Chicopee, MA location. Before I graduated he asked me what I wanted to do Oil, Gas, AC, Refrig, etc... When I told him I wanted to do heating and AC he set up an appointment for me and I met him at the job site the contractor was working at the time. He basically told the guy to hire me and quote " I will vouch for this guy" I started working the very next day! Everybody in my graduating class got a job if they wanted to but we also had a lot of lazy guys in our class that never showed up or left early. I don't think any of those guys got jobs. One lazy guy blew off two great job opportunities the placement guy set up for him.
