BE RESPONSIBLE- We are a professional career trade! Do what you are supposed to do,  when you are supposed to do it, the way you are supposed to do it! Use your time wisely and keep a positive attitude.
BE RESPECTFUL-Everyone likes to be treated well. Most people forget that to treated well we have to treat others well! Disrespect is not only a discipline matter, but can evolve into reasons employers won't hire technicians or even terminate them. We ALL are on the same team!
