Getting a little more education

My whole family now is talking about everyone getting this certification

I took classes to learn more about HVAC. Not only that, I got myself NATE certified. That means I had to take certification exams and log in field hours where I showed another certified and licensed HVAC professional. I learned so much about HVAC and got to experience hands on. Why did I do so much? I wanted to be as qualified as possible to work in the field of heating and cooling. I didn’t want to get a job based on my last name. My whole family is a part of a Heating & Air Conditioning supplier. From the time I was a teen, I would climb into attics to repair vents in addition to air ducts with my father on repair runs. I would change air filters, clean the inside of HVAC machines and handle tools when I was not even driving yet. I didn’t want to just get the job because I was handy though. I wanted to prove to my family that I have the know-how. It is also good to tell customers about my education. Being NATE certified isn’t required, but it is a nice little add on. My whole family now is talking about everyone getting this certification. It will require them to take exams and then they need another NATE certified person watching them do repairs. How funny that I will be that person for them. Hopefully after all this schooling we will make more money and be better at our jobs.
