As Careers in HVAC Boom, Get Ahead of the Game at CCNN

As Careers in HVAC Boom, Get Ahead of the Game at CCNN! What’s a career that’s recession-proof, constantly in demand and exploding with new opportunities with each passing year? No, this isn’t a riddle. The simple answer is that the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration industry is – pardon the pun – heating up for those with the proper skills and training.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 300,000 Americans work in HVAC/R service technician jobs alone. There’s hardly a place in the world that doesn’t need installation and regular maintenance of heating or air conditioning units.
