LAS VEGAS– To follow through on its goal to hire and certify 50 veterans, Goettl Air Conditioning and Plumbing has successfully hired and facilitated free HVAC training to 12 of the 49 veterans hired since January 2020 in several cities in which Goettl operates including:
· Las Vegas, NV
· Tucson, AZ
· Phoenix, AZ
· Corona, CA
· Simi Valley, CA
· San Antonio, TX
As part of Goettl’s Veterans Hiring Initiative, veterans who have no prior HVAC experience, but interest in pursuing an HVAC career, will be sent to Perfect Technician Academy in Weatherford, TX where they will receive their HVAC certification in an accelerated six weeklong program at no cost.
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, different roles within the industry, health and safety hazards and how to interact with customers and deliver quality service.
Today’s HVAC industry is fighting a rising labor shortage of technicians. Goettl’s Veterans Hiring Initiative aims to change that shortfall while continuing its mission to support veterans. 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. A career as an HVAC technician not only provides high pay for a trade profession, it is an essential service that is recession proof and always in demand.
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/.
