    Hussmann Tackles Industry-Wide Technician Shortage with TechX Program

    From Contracting Business - May 22, 2018



    New high-level technician training program at Lincoln Tech will prepare graduates for careers with Hussmann locations nationwide.

    BRIDGETON, MO – Hussmann Corporation, a Panasonic company, announced it is launching TechX, a new high-level training program with
    Lincoln Educational Services Corporation. Starting in May 2018, students will have the opportunity to train for Hussmann careers in the inaugural
    Advanced Refrigeration Training Center at Lincoln Tech’s Grand Prairie, TX campus. With an industry-wide shortage of technicians, and almost
    60,000 HVACR (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration) positions projected to open in the United States in the next six years,
    Hussmann sources say the company envisions a bright outcome from the TechX program: Being able to more readily identify and hire the right
    candidates for the Hussmann Services team.

    60,000 is about how many of us old timers are going to be retiring soon.

    GOOD!!

    Then people will finally realize that a "college degree" isnt worth squat and the trades are where it's at. Plus, us younger guys will get to make a TON more.

    Heck there is alot of old equipment young guys don't see, it's the old stuff I'm worried about, not much pneumatics training anymore.
    And this stuff they are doing is nothing new, there are companies all across the US doing thier own version of this in preparation for the departure of the baby boomer generation from the work force. Lots of them targeting returning vets, paying them to learn a skill.
    My problem is we can't get them to work now with all this fancy training, what means they'll stay? It's a work ethics problem not a people shortage.
    Kids have grown up watching dad maybe Mom bust thier bodies and work like a dog to get by and they don't want to live like that.
