Reuban | HVAC & Refrigeration Student

A Commercial/Residential HVAC & Refrigeration student, Reuben will complete the program this month and is already filing the paperwork to start his own HVAC business!

He decided to attend Emily Griffith after he was laid off from his job as a welder for Northwest Pipe Company when the company decided to close its Denver facility.

Reuben chose Emily Griffith because we understood his specific needs, particularly regarding childcare for his 7-year-old daughter. Reuben also appreciates the hands-on experience that he's received.

"Mr. G is excellent. One of the most patient teachers I've ever had," says Reuben. "He will sit and explain things to you; he knows how to translate the information."

Vince Guerrie, HVAC instructor, says of Rueben, "He's a natural leader. He always steps up to help. He's going to be very successful."

Rueben is looking forward to starting his own business with the new skills he has learned.
