Detroit HVAC company encourages teens to join the trades

DETROIT, Sept. 14, 2023 ~ On National Tradesmen Day, C & C Heating & Air Conditioning is encouraging teenagers and young adults to consider a career in the trades. According to Dayna Hottle, general manager of C & C Heating & Air Conditioning, young people are often not exposed to the benefits of entering into the trades.

Hottle noted that trade school is much less expensive than college and students can start working sooner so that they're earning money quickly. The average cost of attending a four-year college is about four times more expensive than most trade schools, with an average cost to graduate from trade school being approximately $33,000.

Baby Boomers are retiring from the trades in record numbers so HVAC, plumbing and other home service companies often have positions available for trained technicians. Most skilled trades work comes with benefit packages that are as good as those available to college graduates.

National Tradesmen Day was started by Irwin Tools in 2011 to recognize the tradesmen who build the nation's infrastructure and keep its cars running, its water flowing and its lights on. The day is celebrated on the third Friday in September.

Hottle said that the trades are fantastic careers to pursue because there is so much growth opportunity in our current climate. "The sky's the limit," she said.
