Sinema works to create more jobs and opportunities for Arizonans

PHOENIX – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema toured The Refrigeration School as part of her “Kyrsten Means Business” program, aimed at creating more jobs and business opportunities in Arizona.

The Refrigeration School offers post-secondary skills training to help Arizonans compete in the job market. Sinema met with leaders of The Refrigeration School and discussed how they can create more job and education opportunities for Arizonans.

“The Refrigeration School gives Arizona students the skills and hands-on training to excel in good-paying jobs. I am working across the aisle to make skills-training programs more accessible so Arizonans can build better lives,” said Sinema.

Sinema started the “Kyrsten Means Business” program to listen to job creators and work with them to expand opportunity and grow Arizona’s economy. The businesses visited range from small tech start-ups, to large industrial manufacturers, to community non-profit organizations. During each visit, she spends time with leadership and employees to learn about challenges, and to identify ways to work together to reduce red tape, access new markets, or leverage new opportunities.

The Refrigeration School was founded in Phoenix in 1965 and has been training students for sustainable HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) careers for more than 50 years. Offering hands-on education with a strong emphasis on the highly sought-after electrical skills, diagnostic and mechanical technology proficiency employers seek, RSI’s programs include Welding, Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating Technologies, Electro-Mechanical Technologies, Mechanical Maintenance Engineering, and an online solar certification training.
