Meet Calvin King

You could say that fixing things is in Calvin’s DNA. He started assisting his father in the garage at age six. When he was offered an opportunity to become an HVAC/R helper, Calvin jumped at the chance. In 2007, he earned his associate degree in heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration at Elgin Community College.

Time For a New Career?

If you are contemplating your career currently, you are in good company. As we wind down 2020, many people are reflective about jobs, relationships and lifestyle.  This is often the case in January, as people naturally look back over the past year to see what went well and what could be changed for the upcoming year. However, 2020 was unlike any other and, as a result, more people than ever are considering if a change of career makes sense or if training for a new skill could bring more income opportunities in 2021.

Make 2021 YOUR Year

Many of us faced new challenges in 2020.  Did you discover you are stronger, more determined and more resilient than you ever could have imagined?  Now, are you ready to apply your newfound strength to other areas of your life in 2021?   As a new year approaches, so does another chance to apply that new strength to advance your career dreams. We believe you have what it takes to succeed.

A Day in the Life: Welder

When you look at a skyscraper, chances are you're wondering how many stories it is or which of its offices you need to reach. As a welder, I see a system of pipes and metal carefully held together by a team's hard work. My name's Tanner, and I'd like to show you why welding is such an important career.
