“After you receive your high school diploma or GED, you have to either apply for an apprenticeship program or attend trade school. An apprenticeship program is a part paid, part training position that lasts between 3-5 years. You must have 2,000 experience/work hours plus 144 hours of coursework per apprenticeship year. It’s a great way to start earning money and learn a trade, at the same time. The best bet for apprenticeships is to apply through your local chapter of a trade organization. Some examples would be Air Conditioning Contractors of America, Mechanical Contractors Association of America, Sheet Metal Workers International Association, and the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors Association. Through these apprenticeship programs, you’ll be learning how to read and use blueprints, best job safety practices, the use and care of the tools, and ventilation and air-conditioning system designs.
