I have finally been approved to start a daily meeting at the local high collegeâ€¦ My idea is to expose these students to the idea of trade work, care about plumbing, roofing, or being an electrician, to let them think they have a lot of options, then i remember when I was in college, all my teachers said I needed to go to college if I wanted to have a great job.
- I ended up going to trade college, and wound up with an amazing job, and I want to make sure the young people of today have that same chance! By laboring in the Heating and A/C industry instead of going to college I have spent the last 23 years making great money, although I can speak from the heart about Heating and A/C work, I also want to provide these teenagers a opening to experience other trades so they don’t know limited, then the concern is that I don’t think firsthand about roofing, or plumbing, or being an electrician, so I need to bring in some other trade experts to talk to the students; For any of them who show an interest in heating and cooling work, I can arrange a ridealong where they spend a few hours with a single of my techs.
They can witness a few condo calls or commercial Heating and A/C inspections and get a taste for what the day-to-day work is like. It requires some specialized education, of course, but an Heating and A/C tech can work a manageable schedule and make great pay; Unlike laboring in fast food, Heating and A/C work offers a bright future for teens.
