The Workforce Skill Gap Is Reality You Face 


How will you pass the torch to the next generation of technicians? 

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, mechanic and installer jobs are expected to grow 15% nationwide by 2026. The average age of a HVAC technician is over 55 years and the industry is further complicated by a 150,000+ technician shortage. An aging workforce, advancements in technology and projected skilled labor shortages perpetuate a workforce skill gap that remains unresolved. This problem is costly for manufacturers, distributors and dealers. One could argue this is the greatest problem the HVAC industry faces. 

Imagine having access to expert level skilled HVAC employees available for mentorship and to augment your service and training teams. Technicians need access to technical, personal and professional mentorship from someone who has been in their shoes 

    • Technical expertise on troubleshooting and application to reduce time on the job
    • Personal support and advice when navigating life’s challenges 
    • Assistance for GMs and Service Managers in mentoring their technicians and installers
    • A community of like-minded individuals improving your consumer and employee eperience
