IMTI & Post University Form Partnership to Provide Continuing Education Opportunities for Technical Contractors
December 9, 2014, Marcel Veronneau, CEO and Janice Shannon, president of Industrial Management & Training Institute (IMTI) in Waterbury, and Don Mroz, Ph.D., President and Dr. Jane Bailey, Provost of Post University in Waterbury, officially signed a partnership agreement to support the continuing education needs of IMTI's technical students and graduates.
At the agreement signing event, Marcel Veronneau stated, "This collaborative agreement with Post University's Malcolm Baldrige School of Business will provide our IMTI students taking our courses in the technical fields of HVAC, electrical and plumbing, with the tools to succeed as business owners as well as certified professional technicians. We know that unfortunately many excellent contractors fail due to their lack of business management knowledge. As part of our continuing commitment to our students' future success, IMTI has worked for several years to create this agreement with Post University to offer professional continuing education courses for our students who are future licensed contractors. We believe that a technically-focused student who also has business knowledge equates to a much better employee who also understands the management aspects of a company."
