My little brother has been in the unfortunate circumstance of finishing school and entering the world of work during this crazy time of a pandemic.
My brother graduated from middle school a little over more than one years ago, and then he started the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C technology program in a technical school.
He was super pumped about studying everything there is to suppose about heating and cooling, and he was doing legitimately well in school. Then, the mess all of us call 2020 happened. His hands-on studying became virtual studying. Watching someone service an cooling system unit from your little computer is just not the same as getting in there and feeling and seeing the guts of the a/c, despite the fact that he had to make the best of it. The school did the best they could, the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C professors did the best they could, and my brother and the rest of the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C students did the best they could. Eventually, the school decided to bring back smaller classes wearing masks because it got closer to people graduating and having to take the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C certification test from the state in order to get licensed. The school was just afraid it would be too strenuous to pass the test without having the hands-on cooling system experience. Well, I felt so bad for my brother; he legitimately began to struggle with his grades and his know-how of Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repair. He was ecstatic to get back in the classroom, which is in itself kind of a miracle. He wasn’t exactly the most diligent student in middle school. Anyway, it took him more than one tries, despite the fact that he finally passed the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C service certification test, and I was so proud of him. He called myself and others today and just told myself and others that a general supplier has now hired him to be his go-to heating and cooling guy!
