Travis Franklin
Travis Franklin
HVAC Instructor

Travis Franklin was a salesman for Coca Cola Bottling Company in Tennessee for 12 years, after relocating from Utica, Kansas. After that many years of having a job and longing for a career, he put an end to sales and went into the HVAC trade; something he had been interested in for a long time. Travis is a Total Tech graduate and fully believes in the school and the programs it teaches. He was an HVAC technician working at Hiller Plumbing Heating Cooling Electrical when he was offered the position of HVAC Instructor at Total Tech. Travis jumped at the opportunity, as he was going to be in music education and was just shy of his Bachelor’s degree, but life happened and he had to change directions, so he didn’t get to fulfill that goal. He now has the opportunity with Total Tech to see that goal come to fruition, and help others learn the trade that he is so passionate about.

Travis loves music and at one time had dreams of becoming a professional musician in Nashville, but is now satisfied making music in his spare time with his band. Total Tech is very fortunate to have such a caring and giving Instructor and he is greatly appreciated by the team.
