WEST ORANGE, N.J. – Lincoln Educational Services Corporation has entered into an agreement with Johnson Controls to provide expanded career opportunities for Lincoln Tech graduates and to help build the Johnson Controls workforce. This marks the second partnership with a global employer that Lincoln has announced within the last several weeks.
Graduates of Lincoln Tech’s Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning and Electrical and Electronic Systems Technology training programs throughout the country will have the opportunity to pursue careers with Johnson Controls, which will assist Lincoln in recruiting new students for these programs. Johnson Controls will provide training equipment and sponsor classrooms at 10 Lincoln Tech campuses across the country: Columbia, Maryland; Denver, Colorado; East Windsor, New Britain and Shelton, Connecticut; Indianapolis, Indiana; Mahwah and Union, New Jersey; Marietta, Georgia and Melrose Park, Illinois.
Scott Shaw, president and CEO of Lincoln Tech, says partnering with Johnson Controls demonstrates the school’s commitment to helping students and employers alike overcome the skills gap that exists in many hands-on industries today.
The partnership with Johnson Controls comes less than two months after Lincoln Tech announced it had also partnered with Hussmann Refrigeration. Together, these two relationships will afford Lincoln students a wide range of career possibilities after graduation.
