In today’s job market, finding a good-paying blue-collar job can be a challenge, especially in the field of plumbing. However, one San Diego-based entrepreneur is doing something different to help. Edy Cartagena, the 23-year-old founder and CEO of E-Drains, has developed a free online course to teach college students and unemployed individuals the skills they need to become plumbers.
Cartagena’s inspiration for this project comes from his own personal experiences as an immigrant. He came to San Diego from Honduras in 2017 and launched his plumbing business E-Drains. He quickly realized that there was a high demand for plumbing jobs, but not enough qualified plumbers to fill them. He was inspired by the words of Maya Angelou, “When you learn, teach, when you get, give.” Cartagena wants to empower the next generation by providing this free online course.
The course is designed to be easy to use and accessible to anyone with an internet connection. Cartagena says, “Living in Honduras, I had nothing and always wanted to come to America. I wanted an opportunity for me and my family and now, I want to be able to provide that opportunity for others. With the power of the Internet, I can help anyone in the world for free.”
The course includes a demonstration of the top five ways to easily unclog drains, and Cartagena is available for interviews at any time to discuss the course further. As the CEO of E-Drains, Cartagena is well-equipped to teach the course, as his company offers exceptional and affordable drain and sewer cleaning services. They are constantly referred by plumbers who don’t like dealing with drains or just don’t have the right tools.
E-Drains, Inc. has a mission to bring affordable 24/7 plumbing service to San Diego County by providing every customer with an excellent and individualized experience. With fantastic rates and top-grade service, the customer is their only concern. They have a set core of values that every member shares, and you can follow their journey on Facebook, Instagram, and @edrainsinc.
In conclusion, Cartagena’s free online course is a unique and innovative way to address the shortage of blue-collar jobs, especially in the field of plumbing. He is providing an opportunity for anyone who wants to learn the skills needed to become a plumber, and his dedication to helping others is truly inspiring.
