“With up to 95 million Baby Boomers either retiring or changing work focus, the HVAC industry is in critical demand for skilled workers to meet the labor needs. The HVAC Apprentice Contest will go a long way in inspiring not only the competing apprentices, but also countless others in attendance at CONNECT who may be considering an HVAC career,” said Merry Beth Hall, the Foundation’s director of apprentice and journeyman training.
The first day of the contest will include brazing, pressure testing, leak testing, pulling a vacuum, and refrigerant recovery. The second day of the contest will test skills in taking readings on equipment, electrical diagnostics, and basic electrical skills. Contestants will also take a written exam to assess their HVAC knowledge.
