On this episode of Tradeswork: The Rocky Mountain Mechanical Contractors Association Podcast, we welcome Bernardo Villaruel, a 4th year apprentice who is a member of UA Local 208 and works for American Mechanical Services (AMS), whose mission is to provide quality workmanship for a fair price. Their intent is to honor all of their commitments and to strive for 100% customer satisfaction. AMS is a privately owned family of companies providing primarily commercial heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) service and construction work in various locations across the country. Here are some of the questions you can expect to be answered on the show:
- What is it like at the start of an apprenticeship?
- What was the toughest part of his apprenticeship? (Hint: It was COVID-related)
- What led him to a career in HVAC?
- What is Bernardo's favorite thing about working in this trade?
- What are "controls" and what kind of work did Bernardo do on them?
- What is Bernardo's next goal upon graduating?
