Are you looking for a career that will pay you what you are really worth? Are you making less than $30 an hour now? Heating and Air Conditioning might be for you.
Read this through carefully to the end. Since this is an offer for employment after completing a 6-week in-classroom training, your first test begins right here.
Brand New HVAC Technicians can break $45,000. A veteran with 3 to 7 years of experience in air conditioner repair in Las Vegas, can make $60,000 to $100,000 per year. No matter where you live in the USA there will always be a need for indoor temperature comfort. And they will always pay well for it.
In March we will begin training new recruits to work as AC Technicians in our company. There are a total of 24, 3 – 4 hour classes. We do not charge for the training. You will learn everything you need to know about residential AC systems including how to diagnose and repair them. You will not learn about furnaces, boilers, or refrigerators in this class. That comes later. The training will be hands-on from day 1. When you complete the training you will go to work meeting with customers, diagnosing and repairing air conditioners.
The Skills We Are Looking For
- Good with your hands.
- Good listener
- Good with people
Though we are not looking for HVAC experience or training we are looking for a 10-year history of work experience. A combination of employment that involved customer service and working with your hands would be great.
It’s not easy
This is the hardest job you will ever have. It is over 125 degrees on the roof. It is over 130 in the attic. You will spend half your day in these 2 environments. Around half of those that start an HVAC career quit by July because they can not handle the heat. Everything you touch is sharp, hot and electrically charged. Some customers will not trust you based on an experience they had with another AC tech. In the end, your job is to not only restore cold air but to convince them that you are the right person to pay to do that. This can be harder than the actual repair. (Thus the need for People Skills)
In short… Wimps need not apply!
The good news is your customers will love you. I have never felt so much gratitude from a customer as when that cold air starts blowing out the duct. I have literally witnessed tears of gratitude from many customers. Not to mention some fat tips and one offer to have my baby.
The top technicians that complete our 6-week training will be given a van stocked with parts and sent out into Las Vegas and Henderson to save the day and help people bring comfort back there homes.
For 7 years we have trained new technicians to work at our company. Some have been through schools. Many have not. Though I believe there is value in the schools I will tell you it will have no bearing on your success. 7 out of our top 10 highest all-time earning techs started their education in our classroom and did not have “Certified” “Accredited” AC training.
If you have been to school, you may feel that you are ready to diagnose and repair air conditioners. Experience tells me that this is rarely the case. But we do offer an opportunity to test out of the class and jump-start your career.
Who we are looking for?
The story of Bob. Bob was the smartest HVAC tech I have ever know. He was dedicated and never said no to even the dirtiest jobs assigned him. Bob who had done HVAC for 8 years was not able to communicate well with customers. Despite all his talent and experience, he was not good with people. His employment here was short lived.
The Story of Mark. Mark was a good, honest, look you in the eye, friendly kind of guy. Though he had never worked in HVAC before and had no training, he had a 15-year history of service jobs where he had to interact with customers all the time. After 6 weeks of in-class training, he started meeting with customers restoring cold air to their homes. He made a few mistakes along the way but owned them and learned from them. Within 3 years, he became the most requested HVAC tech and highest earner.
At the bottom of this page, you will click a link to be taken to an online application. When filling it out, do not include your address. Leave it blank. It’s all about the details. By not putting your address in, it tells us that you can follow instruction, your not in a hurry and that you really want to become an HVAC tech since you have read the entire job description. For us, it greatly shortens the list of people that we need to call back allowing you a better chance of being the person chosen.
Just the Facts:
We do not charge for the Class. Some men and women will pay more than $10,000 to go to Air conditioning school but that is not us. We are training you to work for our company, so we do not charge for the training. The only investment for you is a few hundred dollars in tools that you will need at the end of class. Upon completion of the class, you will be offered immediate employment.
You will not be paid to go to class.
At your face to face interview, you will be asked to; take an extention ladder off a van, carry it 100 feet, set it and climb 27 feet to get on a roof. Then put it back on the van. It is a pass or fail test.
You will get your hands dirty on the very first day of class. This is hands on learning with a little reading and video study.
This is our 7th year holding the class and training new HVAC tech
Having a degree from a technical school will not improve your chances of being trained and hired thow it may shorten your training.
You will work by yourself 95% of the time. No room for slackers.
Based on your application, you will be contacted by phone for 2 brief phone interviews. The third interview is face to face where you will do your ladder test.
You will need an EPA certification that we will prepare you for at the end of the training. The test is simple and you will pass it.
Criminal Record – Drug Test – Driving Record
If you have been convicted of stealing in the last 5 years. You are wasting your time applying. If you have been convicted of a violent crime in the last 5 years you are wasting your time applying. Everything else is open for discussion.
We background check everyone yearly or when there is suspicion to do so. It takes 4 to 6 weeks to get it back. We have had people go through the training only to come out the other side without a job because they thought we would not find out.
You will be drug tested.
A clean driving record is a must. If you have had any MAJOR violations in the last 3 years, odds are, we can not get you insured. Same for accidents. a fender bender may be okay but a major accident will likely not fly.
The class schedule is Monday through Thursday from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. To allow for social distance, we are considering holding two classes each day at different times.
The next class is in March 2021. In years past we invited as many as 30 to the class. This year I have room for 5 to 7. You will wear a mask and maintain distance during training.
If you really want a chance at getting in on this high-income career opportunity I will tell you the secret to getting a callback. Read everything on this page. You see, some people that don’t want to work at all will just submit a resume. Since I have never read a less than perfect resume, this does not help. If someone just sends a resume it is because they are lazy, do not pay attention to details or don’t want to work. These qualities do not make for a good Technician.
