Education and training is often an elusive benefit to measure financially, but less than 1% of all apartment maintenance technicians have a degree, so pursuit of it offers distinction and opportunities.

Graduates will have developed the knowledge, skills and competencies necessary for performing building maintenance, and diagnosing and repairing equipment. They will also understand the upkeep and maintenance required at a property in order to maintain its curb appeal, and to ensure that all vacant apartment units are restored to a “market ready” condition and in a timely manner. Below are statistics for the past 3-years:
