    Online contractor publication, IE3, has published an article emphasising the viability of HVACR as a career path.

    ACCA (the Indoor Environment & Energy Efficiency Association) President and CEO, Paul Stalknecht, emphasised in the article that the USA is currently in the middle of a skilled labour drought and to address it, the ACCA are working to help change the message about trade education and skilled trades. The aim is to change the message that a trade is an alternative career choice to university, to an opportunity for a life long career.

    Stalknecht goes on to emphasise the various career paths available within the HVACR industry such as design, sales and management, as well as how technology evolution has enabled the HVACR industry to evolve.

    Stalknecht also provides other ways of spreading the message of HVACR’s career path viability, such as having teachers and parents educating young people about the technological evolution in the trades, and contractors sharing the message during career days at schools or parent/teacher nights.

    Stalknecht also stated that the ACCA are advocating for the US Congress to reauthorise career and technical education (CTE) programs, which enable schools to receive the same credit for sending students into skilled trade careers that they receive for sending them to university.

    IE3’s article can be read in full here.
