Alumni Testimonials

RSI is everything they say they are

I attended RSI MME Program. I was in class 9 months and online for 6. Although due to health reasons I have not been employed yet with the awesome team that career services has I would have right away. Now almost 2 years later, they haven't given up. I still get every email with all job opportunities and frequent calls. I am ready to work. Good thing they offer free lifetime classes because I will be doing refresher classes while they help me look for work. I am very confident that I will have me placed in a job soon,. I wouldn't change my decision of choosing RSI over other programs offered at other schools.

Great experience

After attending RSI it was not long for me to locate a job even though I was looking out of Phoenix and the career department didn't have many out of area leads. After working for a year or so and seeing other people hired right out of school (not RSI) I realized how lucky I was to attend this school. I know have great opportunities that a lot of the time come to me so I am not looking for a job but jobs are looking for me. If you don't mind sweating, getting dirty, and working hard RSI will definitely put you on the right path for a job in HVACR.

My life has changed in so many ways since I graduated I went to school to learn a trade and become something in life and because of the teachers and the school I was able to accomplish everything I had my heart set on I would like to thank a few teachers that really inspired me while attending rsi Mike Orduno phase nine,Guy and last but not least Phil who does not teach there any more but deserves to be recognized I just want to thank each and everyone of you.
