I am the mother of a schoolboy who is now in the eleventh grade, and his guidance counselor plus his father are starting to talk to him about what he is going to do with his life once he walks across that floor at graduation. One thing every one of us have observed in his school life is that he much prefers to work with his hands than with his head; Well, you have to use your head as well, but you know what I mean. He would rather build something or fix something or take something apart, then he would read a book and answer questions. Because of his natural inclination, I am tempted to try to tell my child that he should look into learning a skilled trade. I know that skilled workers are in short supply all over the country, and also especially in my state where I live. We need all kinds of skilled workers for sure, but a single thing I am particular every one of us will always need is heating and A/C installers, plus repairmen. If my child decided to go to tech school, which I hope he does, I assume he would fit best in the heating and cooling program. The local tech school by us teaches a program called Heating and A/C – R. That stands for heating and A/C plus refrigeration. Not all trade schools teach refrigeration along with their heating and cooling program, but ours just happens to. I assume this is smart plus also vital for the good of society. Our grocery stores and restaurants need reliable refrigeration installation plus refrigeration repair, along with heating and cooling repair. I do not see any shame in learning how to install and repair air conditionings plus heaters. There was a time when all trades were looked down upon, and it was as if the only people who could do those jobs were those who couldn’t do anything else. But those days are long gone! Heating and A/C professionals often also have easy schedules, which is truly nice indeed.
