My podcast, called Explore the Trades, is a way to learn about great careers in skilled trades and construction. These careers combine short-term education with long-term financial gains.
In episode 1 we cover the career of Commercial HVAC Service Technicians. These are the folks who work in large scale commercial spaces (think schools, hospitals, companies, warehouses, manufacturing and food facilities) where they install and repair heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment.
You can find links to the two year programs in the Minnesota State system where you can start the career journey here. Dunwoody College of Technology also has an HVAC program. You can also find a good overview of the career at Careerwise.
If this is the career for you, most programs will start in the fall semester which is usually towards the end of August.
Some programs fill up which means you need to prepare and take steps to start these programs in the spring.
