HVAC Workers Share Their Knowledge
My husband, brother, and uncle are Heating, Ventilation plus A/C professionals and they have been for several years! Recently, my uncle and brother were asked to speak at a local school during their job assembly.
My uncle was honored, but horrified as well, because he doesn’t supply speeches, then my uncle confessed to me that speaking before a crowd terrified him, even if it is just kids, so I promised to help him prepare some notes.
I told him to tell the students that Heating, Ventilation plus A/C training and certification takes less time than a college degree, which I thought would catch the attention of students not interested in a 4 year degree. I told him to describe the apprenticeship program and what he l gained while in his Heating, Ventilation plus A/C training and apprenticeship. I told my uncle not to forget to mention to the students that an Heating, Ventilation plus A/C professional could expect to get dirty or definitely working outdoors, and would be expected to work well with their hands. I told my uncle to explain the requirements to get into Heating, Ventilation plus A/C training and to go to work as a Heating, Ventilation plus A/C professional, appreciate a school diploma and a valid drivers’ license. I also thought that my uncle should mention how much money an Heating, Ventilation plus A/C professional can expect to earn at first and over time. I told my uncle that after saying all that, he could let the kids ask him questions. I outlined his speech in clear notes that he could refer to and I encouraged him to practice it a few times. And things went great! My uncle told me that there seemed to be a few kids who were interested in becoming Heating, Ventilation plus A/C professionals and he was glad he went.
