Collaborating to Close the HVAC Skills Gap in Atlanta

We started some great conversations this December with key industry partners about closing the HVAC skills gap in Atlanta. Earlier this month, Altierus Career College in Norcross hosted local HVAC businesses to talk about how to create awareness for career technical education (CTE) and train the next generation of HVAC workers.

In addition to local HVAC servicers, we also met with Tim Elliott, CTE program specialist with Georgia’s Department of Education. Tim was very excited to learn more about us and wants to be a partner in working with high schools to create awareness of CTE. Attendees also took a tour of the HVAC labs, currently under renovation — made possible by the ECMC Foundation. We’re looking forward to 2019 and how these exciting new opportunities will drive change in Atlanta’s HVAC industry.

Road Trip Nation Visits Altierus

This October, our Houston campus hosted Roadtrip Nation on their screening tour of their documentary film, One Step Closer.

One Step Closer follows roadtrippers Melanie, Armand, and Becca across America as they listen to personal stories about how community college shaped the careers of working professionals. Roadtrippers engage in honest dialogue with all kinds of professionals and asked honest questions about their struggles as well as their successes.

We’re excited to continue the conversation about postsecondary education and how Altierus Career College is providing options in career technical education.

The GO! Program Makes a Powerful Impact In Our Communities

Each year, Altierus Career College partners with our affiliate, the ECMC Foundation, to award financial grants to community organizations that help make a tangible difference in people’s lives. For 2018, the Foundation has committed $1.39 million to 92 education-related organizations across 19 states. Recipients include Girls Empowered Mentally for Success in Tampa and The Learning Collection Foundation Corp in Atlanta.

At our Houston campus in late June, grant recipients included the Children’s Museum of Houston, Horizon Outreach, and The Forge For Families. These groups and more were awarded checks by ECMC faculty and staff.

Altierus Participates in Education Symposium

Houston’s Annual Education Symposium was created to establish a bridge between industry and education and to help create a workforce to meet local needs. This Spring, the Symposium welcomed leaders from Altierus Houston Bissonnet to participate: Michael Guillory, Director of Enrollment, and Delilah Olivares, Director of Career Services.

Guillory and Olivares attended seminars and met with area high school principals, teachers, and counselors. They also spoke with influential industry leaders and communicated Altierus’ mission of providing students with short-term training in a variety of in-demand fields. Their participation also included meeting with Texas state senator Sylvia Garcia.

Giving Back Through Equipment Donation

As part of Altierus Tampa’s ongoing program, 25 laptops were recently donated to ReDefiners World Languages, an organization dedicated to creating equity and access to world languages for elementary school students, with an emphasis on at-risk youth.

Altierus is proud to work with non-profits that are making a difference in people’s lives through outreach and education. Additional groups that are scheduled to receive laptops this Summer include: Girls Empowered Mentally for Success, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay, Computer Mentors, and more.

Altierus Supports Red Cross Disaster Relief Efforts

It was an honor to present our friends at the American Red Cross of Central Florida with a check for $138,300 to help continue the disaster relief efforts from last fall’s Hurricane Irma. The funds were raised by Altierus, ECMC Group and its employees. “Our employees care deeply about the areas in which they live and work,” said Jacob Kassuba, Executive Director at Zenith Education Group, which provides oversight to Altierus Career College. “In addition to donating funds to help their fellow employees, we are proud to provide a significant donation to help with the rebuilding efforts.”
