Where do ACHR Technicians work?

ACHR professionals typically work for building equipment contractors, commercial & industrial machinery & equipment repair shops, and hardware, plumbing, & equipment wholesalers.

Many ACHR Technicians, once they meet specific state requirements, choose to be self-employed, allowing them to own their own business and to set their work schedules and the number of hours they work each week.
