In uncertain economic times, a career in heating and cooling technology can be a valuable guarantee of job security. The industry continues to grow and create new positions for qualified technicians. The HVAC and plumbing industries are a necessary and diverse part of the national economy.
Why choose a trade job?
In the past, there was an emphasis in high schools for students to go on to earn a college degree upon graduation. Trade jobs were seen as less favorable, or as a second choice for students that either could not afford college or were not accepted.
That mindset has drastically changed in recent years. Students now know – and appreciate – that they have many options after leaving high school. For trade positions, they can take certification classes in a reduced amount of time and begin working right away … often with little or no student loan debt. Forbes contributor Sarah Chamberlain says, “It’s time we reduce the stigma around technical training. Skilled labor is not a fallback position, but a genuine positive career choice.”

- Your career growth will be almost unlimited.
- You’ll be helping people live more efficient and comfortable lives.
