HYDE PARK — Recently, the retiring president of the local chapter of Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES) made a donation to the HVAC program at Green Mountain Technical Center and with the support of Vermont Heating and Ventilation and the local chapter of RSES, Green Mountain Tech has received seven new Victor brazing kits, two new micron gauges, three Fluke multimeters, two dual temperature testers, 10 tubing cutters, six pipe reamers, and four deburring tools. These new tools will replace the outdated equipment that students have been using.

Green Mountain Tech hosts the only HVAC-specific program in Vermont. This program has been providing entry level HVAC technicians to local HVAC contractors in Lamoille County and across the state for 22 years.

The Refrigeration Service Engineers Society is an organization that provides educational and technical support to the heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration industry. RSES was established in 1933 shortly after Willis Carrier created the HVAC industry by perfecting the concept of comfort cooling. The Vermont chapter of RSES was established in 1952.
