|He is new to the business (As of
Get this. Warrenís father is a Stationary Engineer and didnít want Warren to know too much about Stationary Engineering. His Dad wanted him to go to University and be a doctor or a lawyer and not be a Stationary Engineer. He didnít tell Warren much about Stationary Engineer. Probably because he thought Warren would actually like it to the point where he would want to be a Stationary Engineer and not a doctor or a lawyer. Nothing wrong with being a doctor or a lawyer. What is important is being what you want to be.
At the time Warren graduated from high school he didnít want to be any of the above and so he decided to become an environmentalist and get his diploma. After acquiring his diploma in Land Resource Management he worked at it for about 5 years in the oil fields. Problem was, he found it to be low paying. There was limited opportunity for variety or advancement and most of the people in it had high ideals but no integrity. For the most part they were hypocrites he says. Needless to say Warren was disillusioned.
During his time as an environmentalist he spoke to people in the oil business like, field hands and plant personnel about Stationary Engineer. He spoke to his father about it and pumped everybody for information as well as researched it at a technical institution. Most of the valuable info came from the people working in the business. So at 26 years of age and after 5 years of being an environmentalist he quit and went back to school to become what his father didnít want him to be, a Stationary Engineer.
Warrenís reasons for getting into Stationary Engineering:
Take the time to research your career
options. Go to a job site and check things out. Hang around with
on a job site to gain greater insight into what it is all about.
