Because we can.. and should..
We here at Indoor Air Solutions are cut from a different cloth. Of course, it has to be stated and understood that as a business, we do operate with a genuine consideration for the profit motive, but it is our belief that business, especially those small geographic businesses in an area, they should serve as pillars within their communities. To an extent, they should provide that charitable function within communities. They should fill that void in between true profit driven organizations and the government sector. What I mean is that business should have a place within our communities outside of just seeking to profit off the community members. Our course tries to accomplish something for 2 types of people.
The first group of people are those who have had less than perfect pasts. We understand that life is hard. Sometimes the hand we are dealt and how we play those cards leads us down a road that has been less than exemplary. We want to afford those people some good training.
The second group are those STEM college bound and VTECH kids. Chattanooga and North Georgia have some smart kids floating around. We aim to focus their energy on a specific career and immerse them into the heart and soul of air movement.
If you have not noticed, that is what this course seeks to do. For far too long, blue collar work has been looked down upon. The people that pick up your trash, pave your roads and crawl under your houses have not been as appreciated as those who preform society’s white-collar labor. In previous generations those who performed blue-collar work were held in relatively high esteem. These people served an irreplaceable role within our communities. However now, I feel as though these people are looked upon as replaceable. This is a travesty.
There is and will continue to be a shift, as our economy adapts to change, in how specific parts of our entire labor force garner respect. What I mean is, as one sector is flooded with labor (or employees), a void is created within another. Supply and demand tells us that when supply is high and demand is low, price will of course be low. And vice versa. We can apply these same rules to types of labor and the respect they garner.
One less spoken about appreciation for our type of labor and for those who preform it is the gratification one gets from performing it. We get to do things with our hands. We get to create things. Imagine the gratification you would feel for someone who fixes your AC on a 98-degree day. We get to feel that feeling from our customers.
With this course, we intend to equip our community’s youth with some necessary skills. These skills will be the foundation for future careers. The Heating and Air Industry is close to a 100 Billion dollar a year industry. There is also a high propensity for entrepreneurship within this industry. So, we will be suggesting to these kids that there is a reasonable expectation that, if one applies themselves fully to this industry, they can be successful.
The course starts May 27th at our shop with a start time of 9:00am. All information can be found on our website. If there are any further questions feel free to give us a call. We are looking forward to helping our people. www.indoorairsolutionsGA.com
