LAS VEGAS – Goettl Air Conditioning and Plumbing, a locally-based HVAC and plumbing service provider, announced their goal to hire and provide certified training to 50 veterans in 2020 as part of its veterans hiring initiative.
In the past, Goettl has had great success with the veterans that they have added to their team due to their quality of work and attention to detail.
Through the veterans hiring initiative, Goettl plans to send at least 50 veterans in 2020 to an accelerated six weeklong program at Perfect Technician Academy in Weatherford, TX where they will receive their HVAC certification.
Perfect Technician Academy trains and certifies veterans who are transitioning out of the military and entering the civilian workforce as HVAC Residential Install Technicians or Repair Service Technicians. The program includes multiple courses that focus on the mechanics of HVAC, the different roles within the industry, health and safety hazards and how to interact with customers and deliver quality service.
“Veterans have qualities we look for in our employees such as leadership skills, loyalty and motivation,” said Ken Goodrich, CEO of Goettl. “Partnering with Perfect Technician Academy allows us to give veterans the accelerated training needed to join our team and start their career in the HVAC workforce.”
Goettl has made it a priority to give back to the military community and has instituted veteran-focused programs such as the annual Post 9/11 Veterans Tool Scholarship Award, an award that gives veterans attending the College of Southern Nevada $1,000 worth of tools to help start their careers as HVAC technicians.
Today’s HVAC industry is fighting a rising labor shortage of technicians. Goettl’s veterans hiring initiative aims to change that, as the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the HVAC industry will grow 13 percent from 2018 to 2028, much faster than the average for all occupations.
Those interested in pursuing an HVAC career with Goettl have the opportunity to work in Las Vegas, Phoenix, Tucson or Southern California. For more information regarding a career with Goettl, visit https://www.goettl.com/careers/.
