Spend some time deciding what specialties interest you the most:
- Commercial HVAC
- Architectural Sheet Metal
- Service & Refrigeration
- Testing Adjusting & Balancing
- Residential HVAC
- Sign Industry
Though offerings differ regionally, your initial training will give you some idea of the skills and demands for each of these specialties. Your instructors and training coordinator will work with you to review your choices. Once you choose a specialty, you will begin focused training in that area.
In the final two or three years of your apprenticeship, your training center will make every effort to assign you to a company that works in your chosen specialty. Continue to work hard, study hard, listen and learn. Everyone on the job — the journey-level workers, supervisors, site manager and company management — want you to succeed and are ready to help.
