Gas Fitter


When I started with this company I was basically a helper and I had no idea it would end up as good as it did. I didn’t even know what a gas fitter was when I got hired. The company does new mechanical installations but mostly we have contracts to maintain the HVAC systems in manufacturing plants. At first I learned about installing some of the simple components and piping and then they started teaching me how to check the systems for things like pressure and temperature. That’s a regular daily thing with a maintenance contract. I wasn’t allowed to actually adjust or reset anything but it was up to me to make sure something got fixed if there was a problem. A lot of the people working for the company had their gas fitting license and my boss suggested I look into the courses for it. When you have it you can work on any system that’s gas fired. I don’t like school but I figured if I got that certificate then I’d have a specific skill. It took about four months to get my license but I think it’s going to be a good investment because there’s a lot of work in this field and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. I like the work and the pay is great so I see myself staying in construction for good.
