Advising Son-in-Law to Become HVAC Technician

My daughter and son-in-law plan to return to live in the tropical town we moved from.

Since this tropical town is on the beach, it’s quite expensive to live there. They worry about how to pay their bills. My son-in-law had hopes of returning to college, but, because there is now a child, he doesn’t feel he has time to earn his four year degree. He likes to work with his hands, so, I suggested he return to the technical college and earn a certificate as an HVAC technician. The pay is high enough to pay their bills, and, because it stays pretty warm there all year long, people run their air conditioners all year long. The work would be steady. He would work day shifts unless he was on call, and then he would make even better money. The town we come from needs HVAC technicians so bad, most of the reputable companies offer excellent benefit packages. He could even take the classes at night and work as an HVAC technician’s helper while he earns his certificate. Most HVAC companies provide their technicians with company vans. It would also give my son-in-law an excellent opportunity to meet new people in his new town. I had other advice for him, but, I really hope that my son-in-law seriously considers becoming an HVAC technician. My HVAC technician is my best friend!
