I stumbled on this school by accident. When I was laid off from Kenworth after 23 years I was a journeyman / lead sheet metal worker but I had no HVAC sheet metal experiance. Most of what I did was weld, fab and build cabs, fuel tanks, sleepers and frame rails. Lots of metal work, just not the kinda work that the Sheet Metal Workers Union could keep me employed doing.
I was looking for another sheet metal job and almost every search I did came up with either HVAC, HVAC-R or Appliance repair so I started looking into it and found a few schools around here that taught HVAV but only one that taught Appliance Repair. Since I had an offer for retraining, I jumped on it.
I just wish I would have jumped on retraining 10 years ago when it was offered to me, Instead I took a job building incinerator furnaces for ships....That lasted all of about a year
