I have been in the HAVC trade since 1973, beginning when I finished my program from West Valley College in Woodland Hills, California. I got my first job with Sears Roebuck as a service tech, and in those years (1973) $5.25 an hour was great money, to start. I stayed with Sears for 20 yrs and after that I started my own service business, and still have it still today. In the HVACR trade you have to study all sides of the industry so you can always have a job. I have never been laid off or without work since 1973 thank God, for that. This is an outstanding trade that you can always have work!
