Ty started in the trade in 1995 building ductwork with his father. He has held many positions in HVACR, like many starting in installation, maintenance, service, refrigeration, to starting his own company that is still in business today. Ty's real joy has come from teaching and passing his knowledge of the trade on to others. He learned that systems can be diagnosed, serviced and replaced but the mind of learners is always changing and always presents new challenges. Repairing a piece of equipment was always a job but nothing compared to seeing the sparkle in a student's eye when they finally understood the concepts being taught.
Ty has taken his passion for teaching across multiple cities, states and schools across the country. He also enjoys helping instructors with the difficult and ever-changing challenges not only in the classroom but bridging the online learning delivery method. Ty makes a variety of videos available through ESCO and Youtube to assist instructors and their students.
Although Ty has worked for many different trainig centers, he now divides his time among multiple companies. He started Aether training and consulting providing custom, digital and onsite training resources. He is also proud to work with ESCO institute providing digital content to their already expansive instructor and student resource. Ty is also a contract training specialist for Emerson Education Services working with Don Gillis as they provide training directly to contractors.
Ty has a list of HVAC industry certifications from NATE to Contractors Licenses and many in between. Ty is most honored to hold yhe Certified Master HVAC Educator (CMHE) credential and recommends all instructors to take on this challenge for the sole purpose of self improvement and growth. The path is not a task but a Journey, which has had a big impact on his classroom abilities and knowledge.
Ty loves helping others and truly loves this wonderful trade.
