My name is Kevin Goertzen and I’ve been working in the HVAC industry since 1988, that’s 30 years of ‘wrecked knuckle’ work. I have my:
- Red Seal status as a Sheet Metal Technician
- General Gas Fitters Ticket
- HRAI Certification to handle Refrigerant
Since 1998 I have been working as a Service Technician in the HVAC industry. That’s more than 20 years of learning to install and service everything from residential to commercial equipment. Most of those years I spent working with, and learning from one of the best Tech’s in the Saskatoon area. Evening seminars, courses on the fundamentals of Air Conditioning, troubleshooting Air Conditioning and Heating systems, classes in ‘on demand’ water heating systems, and hydronic heating systems. And don’t forget a hundred ‘Beer and Pizza nights’ at the wholesalers!
In many of my recent years, part of my job was to train apprentices on the installation and service of an assortment of heating and cooling products. This has given me the skills to be able to communicate the ‘why, and the how to’ of the installation, maintenance, and the service of those products.
WORTH Training has been in the back of my mind for many years and it is through the encouragement of a friend and the ongoing evidence there needs to be more training that WORTH Training has come to life. The training is designed to introduce you to all aspects of residential HVAC service and maintenance. The courses at WORTH Training will provide you with the knowledge and understanding of basic residential heating equipment and how to repair them. Upon completion of all of the courses you will be confident on a service call and you will continue excel as a ‘problem solver’. The content throughout the course are real world applicable, easy to follow, and easy to complete. The WORTH Training Plan is designed to give you the tools you need to conquer HVAC problems with confidence.
Being a Service Technician has been both challenging, and rewarding, and I believe that through continued training, mentoring, and good technical support, anyone can overcome their fears, and conquer any mechanical problem. A friend, and fellow technician told me years ago … ‘It’s just a mechanical piece of equipment Kevin, don’t let it beat you.’ So, I learn the equipment, what it’s supposed to do, how it’s wired … and then I conquer.
I am a Service Technician, and I’m proud to be one.
