Being out in the field and watching him work and getting my hands dirty, so to speak, has been really beneficial in my training
It feels like it has taken forever for me to get to the point where I am going to be able to work by myself as an HVAC technician. I have been in training for quite some time now and at one point, I started to think that I wasn’t going to be able to do this job. I thought that it was outside the realm of possibility for me because there was just so much for me to learn. I am basically a mechanically minded person, and so things like that tend to come easily for me for the most part. For some reason or another, though, it has been harder for me to learn about heating and cooling technology. I guess that there’s just so much to learn that I was a little bit overwhelmed when I first started going to school to get my HVAC certification. I felt like I was never going to learn everything in a million years. However, I have been working in training with a seasoned HVAC technician for the past three months now, and I have learned more in my on the job training with him than I have ever learned at school. Being out in the field and watching him work and getting my hands dirty, so to speak, has been really beneficial in my training. Now, I feel like I am almost ready to do my own air conditioning installations and repairs. I can hardly wait to be out on my own and to get my own customers. I’m really excited about the fact that this is going to be my career from now on.
