Fieldpiece Instruments, a proven category leader known for delivering innovative and high-quality HVACR test tools for more than 30 years, has awarded $2,500 #MasteroftheTrade scholarships to 10 SkillsUSA students committed to studying for a fulfilling career in the HVACR industry. The grant awarded by Fieldpiece is intended to support aspiring HVACR techs in their continued education and will be used to pay for college or postsecondary HVACR technology program tuition.

The Fieldpiece #MasteroftheTrade Scholarship, in partnership with SkillsUSA, was designed to support the next generation of up-and-coming HVACR professionals, with a concurrent aim to close the skills gap in the U.S. labor market for the heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration trade.

Through the partnership with SkillsUSA, Fieldpiece Instruments aims to give back to the industry as well as do its part to address 80,000 jobs that are currently vacant and in need of being filled.

HVACR is a stable, great-paying trade that offers freedom, hands-on work and the chance to make a big impact on the environment and the community.
