No doubt there are thousands of people stuck in a 9 to 5 environment dreaming of becoming their own boss or having a complete change of career, but too overly cautious to take a step in the right direction. But what if we were to take that step and throw ourselves into learning a new skill or to being our own boss by undertaking air source heat pump installation training?
Not only will you fill your working time doing something you actually enjoy, but you will open up a world of opportunities.
The Benefits of Learning a Trade
Deciding to undertake to learn a trade, such as a train to become a gas engineer, means that you have the option of working for a company or working for yourself. These roles often allow you to be flexible with your hours, meaning better work-life balance as well as doing what you are really passionate about.
Get What You Earn
What better incentive to be your own boss is earning your own money? The effort and workload you put in means that every bit of money from that job is coming to you, not an employer.
You can say goodbye to that monthly wage and earn as much or as little money as you want, and you can carry out a range of jobs and trades in the package to mix and match your customer’s needs. If you work for yourself, you also have the opportunity to select when you are available to work, giving you more chances to structure your work around holidays, family commitments and finish at whatever time you want to. This obviously plays into having a better quality of life in general.
When you begin to take a step into fully qualified gas engineer courses you are injecting yourself with a new lease of life so to speak.
For one, you are not being tied to the same monotonous day to day activity and instead are experiencing new challenges and fresh faces every day. This in turn helps you to grow in knowledge and experience and gives you qualifications you can build on, perhaps taking a Heat Pump Course or Solar Thermal Course.
With the average age of a gas engineer being 55, there are plenty of openings for new entrants to the industry, and plenty of scope for small to large contracts to keep the money rolling in for a long time, meaning you could maintain some pretty big contacts and get to a level where you can choose if you have room to take on more.
It all begins in the gas training courses to gain a successful transition into a new and prosperous career. Contact the team at ECTA today to take the first step into gas and air source heat pump installation training.
