With January comes cold weather in the Chicago area. This year the cold has been extreme with several days of sub-zero temperatures across the region. This has made trained and certified heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) mechanics and installers some of the most important people in many communities. Fortunately, Waubonsee Community College provides opportunities for people to get that training and certification.
It used to be the case that people could learn to work on cars simply by tinkering with their own and by talking to others with more experience in automobile repair. That level of expertise could potentially lead to a successful career in auto services. Those days no longer exist. Now, even an entry-level job in automotive repair requires specialized certification. It is for that reason that the Waubonsee Automotive Technology Program exists.
