Kevin Ballard
Kevin Ballard
Plumbing Instructor
Kevin Ballard began his Plumbing career at the age of 22.  He knew the trades were a way to make a good living, so decided to go to work for a Residential Plumbing company in Vermont where he worked for 14 ½ years.  After this length of time putting in very long days on most occasions, Kevin desired to get into more regular work hours, so he went to work for Middlebury College in the Maintenance Department where he was employed for 5 years.  After residing in Vermont for 41 years he was ready for a change and decided to make Tennessee his home.  Once he relocated he gained employment at East Tennessee State College where he worked Plumbing in the Maintenance Department.  He was there for 2 years and desired to move to Middle Tennessee.  He received an employment opportunity with Hiller Plumbing Heating Cooling Electrical where he has been for 16 ½ years working in Residential and Commercial Plumbing.  After working 38 years in the field he was looking to slow down and had a desire to pass his extensive knowledge on to the next generation of Plumbers coming into the trade.  When the position came open for a Plumbing Instructor, he was the perfect candidate for the position.  Total Tech is fortunate to have such a knowledgeable Plumber on staff to educate students in the Plumbing trade.
 
In his spare time, Kevin enjoys working on automobiles and completing carpentry projects.
