Recently, I have mentioned that we are in need of an industry makeover. I stated that HVAC Tech is now an archaic term for our regimen, and does not adequately describe what we do in the Mechanical Trades. I have mentioned that we will bravely support a new Industry tag. We will coin it ‘Thermodynamic Energy Technician” and Thermodynamic Energy Specialist”. Yes, the times are changing.
See the attached document we have found that will serve as a guideline for what we believe to be the real deal QSR-MechanicalSystems [no longer available - 01/2019]. Pay particular attention to the videos that are presented throughout this document. These videos are short and interesting. They explain in terms we may all understand the methods of presentation toward what the manuscript believes necessary to become a Thermodynamic Energy Specialist.
Pro has decided that the current schooling that is available out there for everyone is woefully short of being satisfactory for what we need in the field. We have decided that we will present a training regimen that includes most of the data within this document, found on the internet and downloaded for free. Understanding the science of what we do for a living is the most important aspect that we find to be missing from all the graduates we interview.
Read through the document and enjoy the videos. I have it available on my computer, and reference it 1 hour a day. Amazing content that will help all of us advance and be proud of what we know and produce. The way our young learn has changed. Curiosity is important and should not be dissuaded. Ask questions, then research and find the answers yourself! We can do it.”
