Not Just a Handyman

Many people have a certain connotation when they think of a career in the skilled labor industry. Most people think of blue-collar jobs with little education and minimal pay. However this is a common misconception. Those in the skilled labor industry are not just handy men; they are highly skilled individuals with adequate training and experience to perform their jobs.

Skilled labor careers include HVAC/R technicians, electricians, welders, automotive mechanics, and more. These professionals work hard to complete school training programs and to become certified in their chosen profession. Depending on the career, training can last anywhere from a few months to 2 years.

HVAC/R technicians install and repair heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration systems for homes and businesses. Training for HVAC/R technicians lasts between six months and two years.

Training for electricians usually lasts about four years. Because training is so extensive, electricians must complete an apprenticeship program, which is usually paid and is completed while in school.

Training for welding professionals can last anywhere between a few weeks of on-the-job training for entry-level positions, or years for upper-level positions. Some welding positions may require certification.

Automotive mechanics repair and maintain automobiles that have broken down or need assistance. Training programs involve both classroom work and hands-on experience, and usually last between six months and one year.

Skilled labor workers are hardworking and highly trained professionals that make modern living more possible and comfortable. Skilled labor professionals should take great pride in what they do and the services they provide for everyone else.
