I think many people are under the impression that you have to be young to become a certified HVAC professional.
Well, that’s not the case.
Just like you can go to college at whatever age you wish, you can also attend an HVAC trade school to become certified. You don’t have to worry too much either, but you should focus on your studies and try your best. You have to pass a series of certification tests in most places, so you should get substantial rest and eat well when studying for those exams. Even if you don’t pass the first or even second time around, you can still keep going back to try again, this is something you shouldn’t just give up on because being an HVAC professional is a well paying career. Personally, I have been working in a bank for the longest time. I felt like I was at a dead end in these last years as I have been working as a manager, but I didn’t like the job much anymore as I felt exhausted with many of the people I had to deal with. I felt like I was babysitting a bunch of teenagers in high school to be honest, the way many of these people would act. Getting in my older age, this was not the life I planned on living. Well, I started taking HVAC classes at a local trade school and when I was certified, I didn’t hesitate to start working at an HVAC company after retiring from the bank job. I don’t know how long I will service people’s heating and cooling equipment, but the money is great and I get my retirement benefits on top of that.
