I am seriously considering a career in HVAC and was wondering if 2 misdemeanor convictions would prevent me from getting hired. I have a disorderly conduct from 2000 and a battery conviction from 2003. I have heard that techs need to be bonded for residential and was wondering if this would stop me from being in HVAC. All replies will be greatly appreciated since I need to know soon to decide on going to college for HVAC or Auto Mechanics. Thanks for all the replies.
