HVAC technician ins and outs

Thinking of getting into a new line of work? There are a ton of jobs out there and a lot of them pay well and offer great benefits.

I’ve worn many hats over the years, going from being an engineer in the Valley to a comedian in Europe and beyond.

Life is about living and experiencing lots of different things and if you are not afraid to be courageous you can live a life of meaning and purpose. I have owned businesses and worked for other people, and I now prefer the latter. Today I’ll talk about HVAC techs and what it takes to become one. Becoming an HVAC technician requires both technical knowledge and hands-on experience. To get started, one should obtain a high school diploma or equivalent, as well as complete a vocational training program or an apprenticeship. Vocational schools or trade schools offer HVAC programs that provide students with the technical skills necessary to install, maintain, and repair heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. These programs usually last between 6 to 12 months and include both classroom instruction and hands-on training. Apprenticeships are another path to becoming an HVAC Technician. These programs combine on-the-job training with classroom instruction and provide students with the opportunity to work with experienced HVAC Technicians and learn from them. Apprenticeships typically last 3 to 5 years. In addition to vocational training or apprenticeships, HVAC Technicians must also be licensed by the state in which they work. To obtain a license, one must pass an exam that covers the installation and maintenance of HVAC systems. This should point you in the right direction if you are interested in the field. Good luck.
