ROCKVILLE, Md. - A new brochure illustrating the benefits of a career as a HVACR technician is now available from the Mechanical Service Contractors of America (MSCA).

The “A 5 STAR Career in the HVACR Service Industry” brochure provides guidance counselors and school administrators with an overview of the HVACR service industry as an attractive and rewarding profession. The growing need for HVACR service technicians is illustrated along with long-range industry need and employment opportunities.

In addition, the brochure covers technician attributes, work performed by HVACR service technicians, and opportunities for career advancement and skills development. How aspiring HVACR technicians can attain training, college credits, and industry certification is also covered.

The brochure is part of 5 STAR Careers, a new campaign from MSCA and the United Association of the Plumbing, Pipefitting and Sprinkler Fitting Industry of the United States and Canada (UA), to raise awareness for a career as a HVACR service technician. MSCA and the UA recognized the need for new service technicians and created 5 STAR Careers to recruit the next generation of technicians and to enable experienced technicians to maximize their career potential.
