    Bernie,
    I its probably kinda far for you, but S.G. Torrice in Woburn/Wilmington is always hiring for work in the sheetmetal shop and on the store side. It may not be what you are looking for, but if you can find a better place to find a job than a supply house you'd allready have another gig. A couple people I went to school with started working there and they had all sorts of contacts for a job by the time they got outta school. Even if you dont go to that one, try some supply shops near your area, even if it isnt the pay you want, you'll be able to pick peoples brains while there, and they may let you take the classes and certification tests that they hold there. Could be a good way to get your foot in the door.
    Food for thought.

    Again, thanks for the input. Definitely too far, ideally would be in Worcester county. I never considered a supply house and I all ready went to school earning a technical certificate in HVAC/R, universal EPA, and went on to get my Massachusetts oil burner license. Need a job so I can start clocking 6,000 hrs toward refrig. license then will return to school for 150 hrs of MASS electric code and theory.

    It is shame that that the school I attended did not say what they were going to do for the HVAC students when we graduated for the JOB PLACEment I am trying to find my own way thru the battlefield.

    Bernie also, make sure that if start working for a company where you will be working towards your hours for you MA refrigeration license they are or are willing to get into the state apprenticeship program. Makes it easier when you go get your license.

    I'm 38 yrs old and a formal apprenticeship is 5 yrs plus so much classroom time every year. I have the required 100 hrs of refrig. theory and EPA cert. State of Massachusetts will allow 6,000 on the job hrs. You keep track of W-2's..if you work a 40 hr wk, its 3 yrs and I will return to school towards the end of my 6000 hrs for 150 hrs of Massachusetts elec. code and theory. I was told by guys at school going through same program, there is no way to really separate hrs spent on heating vs. cooling.

    Hey Bernie congrats!

    Question. Do you know for a fact that your w-2s work for your hours? I've just heard so many things like you need letters from employers to w-2s. I'll hopefully be going for my license in year.

    Thats the reason I suggested to to frostybeer, because you just hear so many different things out there. I had also heard that the state was trying to get rid of the method where you can have your supervisor sign off on your time. Thats the main reason I did the program through my employer. Know for a fact that you can still have them sign off on your time because my co-worker just got his license this way.

    No problem glad that I could help somebody out. So Porter and Chester didn't help you out with job placement? Peterson said that we could use them for a reference if we got above a 90 in class. Where do you work now?
