Keeping it Cool in a Stable Career

Career stability is on the minds of students who are planning on getting their associates degree or bachelor's degree. Since the economy is unsteady, people are looking to careers that are steady. Earning you HVAC technician degree will put you in a career that is always in demand.

Labor reports show the HVAC or heating, ventilating and air conditioning industry is a solid career choice. Officials say no matter how bad the economy gets, HVAC jobs are always in demand, especially in the south.

They also say since it only takes about 15 months to get licensed, local colleges like Moultrie Tech are seeing high student enrollment.

Lavon Miller, HVAC instructor at Moultrie Tech says, "We can't survive as a nation with out refrigeration at grocery stores, medical centers and hospitals so when everybody else won't have a job I will. This is a very stable career field."

Moultrie Tech HVAC student Tommy Rockwell says, "I just changed careers and I wanted something else and wanted to own my own business in the future and this is a perfect opportunity for me to get out there and start my own business."

HVAC job salaries range from $30,000 to $60,000 a year. Officials say workers in this field often start their own business and enjoy flexible hours because of it.

HVAC technician programs can often be completed in less than 2 years, but many techs still learn "on the job". Those with training and certification will always be more employable than others who only have hands on training.
