Officials at Lincoln Technical Institute and Johnson Controls are hoping the newest component of their partnership will bolster interest in HVAC, fire and security careers.

“Johnson Control is like a lot of other companies where they see their workforce is at that retirement age and they just don’t see enough young people who are interested and knowledgeable about their industry to come and join them,” said Scott Shaw, CEO and president at Lincoln Tech, which is unveiling three JCI-sponsored classrooms laboratories at three of the trade school’s campuses in Connecticut.

Both parties have been collaborating for the past two years to provide students with training in the electrical, fire and security system fields — among others. The classrooms are opening in East Windsor, New Britain and Shelton.

“We have a great need for technicians that scale multiple spaces and capacities,” said Al Young, vice president of field services and installation operations for JCI’s North America. “Our company is in growth mode, and we are hiring a number of slots whether that’s in sales front or our technician and mechanics side.”
