Career Advancement

Career Advancement: Looking for work during the onset of the pandemic, Earnell heard about the Urban League’s HVAC training program, funded in part by the Trane Technologies Foundation. Earnell enrolled, studied diligently, and received his HVAC certification. He joined Trane Technologies’ four-year service technician program, where he continues his training and certification. Through the Trane Technologies apprenticeship, Earnell earns credits that he intends to transfer directly to a four-year college. He’s excited to have his own van and work on the preventative maintenance team, which performs tasks such as cleaning hospital cooling towers. Earnell loves his apprenticeship because of the challenge, variety, and positive support he receives from his team. We’re proud of our team members like Earnell and strive to support people across our enterprise with access to career advancement training. Read the full story here.
