About Watkins Weather Systems
Hello, I am Greg Watkins. I earned diplomas at FootHill College & Sequoia Institute Trade for System design, Installation, repair, maintenance & other related service for heating, ventilation & air conditioning or HVAC in 1998’.
As a service technician I worked my way through a couple of HVAC companies in San Francisco & Marin and acquired some experience as I learned to apply the theory of the lab & class work into actual field experience. I eventually tested out as ¾ journeyman – A/C service technician with “Petaluma Local #104 Sheet Metal Union” in order to work for a local shop where I completed the Union Training in the evening time. I was with the Union for over 2 years but after a while S.M.#104 wanted me to report to a different union shop that added 3 hours a day to my commute. Ironically, one of the driving forces that made me want to join S.M.- Local#104 was that it was local. So I stayed with the union until the time I owed was finished & I was able to do HVAC with a non-union shop. This is where I started the application process for my contractor’s license. Eventually I received my C.S.L.B. (Contractors State License Board) – C-20 license in 2003’. And I have kept a clean & current record since.
