I graduate from HVAC/R on May 18th 2012. Once I passed my competency tests I went out there with my resume and filled out applications. I talked to CEO's and contractors and they would ask me questions about the trade. Examples of this would be "What is superheat?" I would reply it is the tempature above saturation for refrigerant and tell them how to get the calculations. I also was asked what subcooling is and afew electrical questions. Sale yourself to them and you will get hired on. I got hired on with a company and they wasn't even hiring because I impressed him so well, I start on the 21st of May. I basicly have the weekend after I graduate and I'm in the field.
