“I was an iron worker for over 15 years, until 2008 when I got hurt on the job. In 2011 I had back surgery. After almost 6 years of not working I told myself it was time to go back to school. I first went back to high school and earned my diploma. I then enrolled in college at IOT for the HVAC program.
I learned a lot from all my teachers at IOT. I really enjoyed my hands on classes. I was offered a job soon after graduation. I like working because I’m learning more about Commercial & Industrial Refrigeration, HVAC, and energy management, and am receiving training from a senior technician.”
