Bartholomew Hahn from Brecksville-Broadview Heights district and is enrolled in Cuyahoga Valley Career Center’s Adult Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) program. He chose to enroll in the HVAC program at his local Ohio Technical Center to learn the inner workings of heating and air conditioning systems.
Bartholomew noted, “With the help of my instructor Dan Hunter, I have acquired in-depth knowledge and a skill set that I look forward to putting to use out in the field.”
Bartholomew has enjoyed the opportunity to learn from a highly knowledgeable and experienced instructor who still works in the field. He is thankful to Hunter for sharing personal experiences and how to solve challenges he may have to face out in the field. In addition to going to school, Bartholomew works for Brecksville-Broadview Heights City School District as a mechanic in the Transportation Department. He shared that it can sometimes be difficult after a long day at work to be motivated; however, once class starts and he is in a hands-on lab setting it brings about a great deal of inspiration.
Bartholomew is appreciative that CVCC is a place that brings students of all ages, demographics, and backgrounds together to learn a quality trade. Looking ahead, he plans on utilizing the HVAC skills he has learned at CVCC in his current job, as well as to open new doors for future job opportunities. His dream is to one day have his own business.
