"I'm 35 years old and my very first job was as an HVAC installer. I got into this profession because the summertime heat in Arkansas can kill you and I enjoy seeing the smiles on people's faces whenever I am able to fix their unit." -Jonathan Rimmer, Malvern, AR
"I got into HVAC/R after my family spent a week inside a house that was 90 degrees. I learned the text book part through Penn Foster. I subscribed to an HVAC/R magazine which had a lot of great info. I also learned from other people that had experience. I had so many people telling me I couldn’t get in the field but it shows if you try hard enough nothing can stop you from becoming whatever you want. I wish we had learning aids or simulators of some sort. Not everyone can read something and apply it." 
-Timothy Bates, Springfield, MO
