It is important to regularly check-in with your career growth or to set goals that you have to achieve in order to grow your business and skills. With the constant changes in equipment and technology in the HVAC industry, it is vital for HVAC Technicians to do this at least once a year to ensure they stay up to date and grow their business.
We would like to share some tips for HVAC Technicians to become more skilled by 2020 and to stay up-to-date with the latest developments and environmental and efficiency standards.
Knowing where you want to go professionally can help you get there, sometimes even more quickly. Setting career goals can be a great way to map out this year, and the years to come. This can give you direction and motivation.
Break down big goals like starting your own HVAC business into smaller goals:
- Completing HVAC training
- Earning certifications
- Attending management and business training
This will allow you to enjoy the satisfaction of achieving these smaller goals, remaining motivated and ultimately leading to achieving your main goal. Remember to write down your goals and check in with them regularly, to ensure that you achieve them.
Join Professional HVAC Associations or Organisations
Compared to most other technical fields, the HVAC industry has a considerable number of associations and professional organisations. These organisations typically keep members informed about the most current technical information, codes and standards and industry trends.
Working in the HVAC industry is an ongoing learning process due to the changing environmental regulations and innovations in the equipment and technology used. HVAC technicians can keep their skills up to date by continuing their education.

Industry certifications can validate your skills and knowledge to potential employers and clients. Some certifications are mandatory, and others, while not required, are very valuable to have.
Attend Conferences or Talks for HVAC Professionals
