When I first started going to college, I decided to go for computer science. It didn’t take me very long to realize it wasn’t exactly what I expected. I knew that I was not really good at this and I wished that I went to go for something entirely different. When I was talking to some good friends of mine, they were telling me that they were attending a trade school to get their HVAC certifications. When they explained that it would take roughly 6 months to complete their courses and then they would be out in the field making good money, I was really happy for them. Honestly, I was in disbelief that you could be out there working after only 6 months of school. I decided I didn’t want to study computer science any longer and I dropped out and went to a trade school for my HVAC certification! I worked really hard to get my HVAC certification, but when I finally earned it, I was the happiest guy around! I was able to get into the same HVAC company my buddies were working at and they showed me the ropes! It didn’t take long for me to be out there in the field working on my own installing furnaces and doing various maintenance work. The pay was fantastic too! To think, I would have been stuck in school doing something I didn’t care for for at least 3 more years! I’m so happy that my buddies found this, or I would have never of thought to become HVAC certified!
