The Type of Person That Would Succeed at HVAC Training in San Antonio TX

“I didn’t choose my career; my career chose me!” Such is the mantra of those who have found their dream jobs. If you are meant for a certain line of work, you’ll find that your interests and personality traits fit closely with the demands of that job. Nowhere is this more apparent than in HVAC, an industry well know for attracting workers with distinct personality traits. You should consider undergoing HVAC training in San Antonio TX if you:  

Love to Socialize

Virtually everyone in the modern United States uses HVAC technology. Whether rich or poor, young or old, centrally located or off the grid, everyone in your community will need to hire an HVAC technician sooner or later. This makes the industry ideal for anyone looking to meet more people or expand their social circles. As a technician, you will meet new clients every day, and will have the chance to talk with them at length. After a few years in the industry, you’ll end up not only with a successful, lucrative career but also with a new set of friends you would never otherwise have met.  

Want to Save the Planet

If you’re committed to the environment, becoming an HVAC technician is the perfect way to put your ideas into practice. Heating, air condition, and refrigeration all consume a disproportionate amount of household energy. By fixing, updating, or replacing faulty equipment, you’ll help your clients to use less energy and reduce their contribution to global warming. Outdated refrigeration equipment also releases CFCs and other harmful chemicals into the atmosphere, contributing to ozone depletion and illness. HVAC training in San Antonio TX will give you the skills to find and fix the source of these hazards.  

Take Pride in Tinkering

If you are meant to work as an HVAC technician, you’ve likely done a lot of HVAC work already. If you love experimenting with household electrical equipment, and relish the opportunity to make your and your neighbors’ homes’ climate control and refrigeration systems more efficient, you already are an HVAC technician for your friends and family. Attending HVAC training in San Antonio TX will allow you to practice professionally, turning your natural abilities into a marketable skill. It will also teach you proper safety protocols, reducing the risk from future home projects and experiments.  

Seek a Secure Future

Although Hollywood often gives all the glory to risk takers, there’s no shame in playing it safe, especially with something as important as a career. If you feel more comfortable with a safety net and are constantly looking for opportunities to secure your future, training as an HVAC technician is one of the best ways to attain this security. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that demand for licensed HVAC professionals will grow by 21 % by 2022, nearly double the rate for the job market as a whole. Nor does job security come at the expense of modest pay. HVAC workers made a median wage of $43,640 in 2012, compared to $41,020 for other maintenance and repair workers and $34,750 for the overall labor force. As an HVAC technician, you will rarely have to worry about the low pay or a lack of work.   Although you must take your personality into account when choosing a career, it alone cannot determine which job is right for you. One personality type may be compatible with multiple different careers, and you must consider the details of each job, as well as your personal and familial needs, before undergoing training.

What SCI Students Are Saying

“I made a complete career change when I started my training at Southern Careers Institute. I needed a stable career to continue providing for my growing family. SCI provided me with the medical terminology and know how that I needed to understand and acquire a career in the medical field. SCI taught me that it doesn’t matter where you are in life right now; you always have room to advance and learn.”

Raquel S.

“Once I graduated from SCI, I had a sense of accomplishment that helped me through the job search process. SCI provided me with the opportunity to brush up on my skills, extend my accounting knowledge, and they boosted my self-confidence. I went to work two days after my last day of school.”


Annette D.

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
