What we can as in industry do to better ensure technicians are properly trained and this does not happen? We need to make education at the center of our industry.

Never has this statement been more true than today. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics conducted a detailed analysis of over 700 occupations and 300 industries. In this report they show that by the year 2020 - 65.6% of the HVACR service technicians will be people not in out industry today.

If the next generation of HVACR service technicians is properly trained we can resolve many of our unwarranted warranty claims, poor installation problems, etc. If they are not properly trained, our problems can greatly multiply.

The role of training the next generation of HVACR service technicians falls upon HVACR educators at community colleges, apprenticeship programs, trade schools and high school HVACR programs.
