I took an HVAC course while I was in high school, and it was very beneficial.
I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I graduated, and I figured that by taking the HVAC course, I could decide if I wanted to be an HVAC technician.
I learned a lot in that HVAC course. First, I learned about how furnaces and air conditioners worked. My family had a furnace and a central air conditioner. Although I knew what they did, I had no idea how these HVAC units worked. Apparently, by learning how the HVAC units worked, it would help us discover how to figure out what was wrong with a broken HVAC unit. Then, we began learning about minor HVAC repairs. We didn’t actually fix a problematic HVAC unit, but we got to perform smaller HVAC maintenance repairs. Because of this information, I have saved a ton of money with my HVAC unit. Despite all of the things that I learned during that HVAC course, I definitely decided that I didn’t want to be an HVAC technician. I was glad to learn a few things, but I couldn’t see myself being an HVAC technician and fixing HVAC units all of the time. I wouldn’t have known that if I didn’t take that HVAC course. It definitely wasn’t a waste, and by the time that I graduated, I realized that I wanted to become a politician. Sure, the HVAC course didn’t help me with that career, but it did help me to see different careers and what other people did for a living. Besides, I learned how to do HVAC repairs, and that helped me to save a lot of money while I was going to college to study the law.
