The HVAC Crisis... 37,700 openings each year

Many of our good old boys (and girls) are reaching retirement age. According to many trade magazines one of the leading causes of concern for the future of both the HVAC and Plumbing business is the lack of qualified field technicians available and the prospect of finding even fewer in the future. That means the strain on existing HVAC technicians will only continue to grow. But you don’t need us to tell you that; you’re living it.

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates a 6-percent growth in HVAC jobs over the next ten years. Well, over 35,000 positions will need filling every twelve months (not counting those already empty). And numbers like that won’t be met by the typical six—or 12-month program. That’s why we designed our program to take a technician from green to ready in ten days.

About Technical Arts Center

You want to build your HVAC technicians from the ground up, but when do you have time to do that? You’re already managing existing staff and trying to fill the jobs you have. That’s where The Technical Arts training center comes in.

Curious apprentices are great, but they slow down jobs and often fail to provide immediate value. Our specially designed curriculum allows us to take hard-working, interested individuals from inexperienced to value-producing in a remarkably short time. This is all thanks to our unique approach to HVAC training. We prioritize hands-on skills over theoretical ones. This includes pretending to run actual service calls and in-depth customer service training.

The Technical Arts Center is located in Houston, the air conditioning capital of the world. It’s just 20 minutes from the international airport. This central location makes it an accessible destination throughout the country. The price of training includes lodging and transportation. With training available year-round, we turn slow seasons into service improvement opportunities.

Most HVAC training programs take months or years. They need to be squeezed between your work and your life. Our program takes a tech from green to value-producing in just ten days.

We’ve heard it again and again: current trade schools suck. They put out wet-behind-the-ear technicians with no soft skills and little on-the-ground experience. We flip that on its head. Technical expertise is our focus.

Our school has an actual HVAC company attached to it. Regarding real-world learning, nothing beats an actual service call; your trainees will experience that right out of the gate.
