    I am young like you but have WAY more experience then you and credential then you and. I am going to George brown in October and taking a workshop at carrier tommorow. You never stop learning in this trade. Take as much training you can get it will make you a better tech
    I am actually working in the field, I was involved in two installations today and lunch on the boss, jealous much?

    I have two buddies who went to PGCC and now work for AIRTEMP. It really comes down to what you put into it. My father happens to be a Master technician so I have him at my disposal 24 hours a day. Catonsville and Nova are too far, especially with rush-hour traffic. I already have an apprenticeship, but if I did't 602 steam fitters would be a good choice.

    I would take the class. I had been in the trade for 2 years before I took my first class and I learned something at every class that I took. Now I am enrolled in my 150 hr HVAC electrical code class, we are working out of the NEC code book and I am learning many things a night that I am there. I wish that I was younger when I got in the field because now that I am married with two children time is alot harder to come by but you only get out of life what you put in. So take the class even if you think it is basic because everything is a stepping stone. Good Luck

    So let me get this straight!

    Since you already have like 150 days experience as a helper, you feel as if you no longer need to waste your time in class anymore?

    One leaky braze is all it takes to dump a whole bunch of freon. Trust me some are harder than others.

    True. But as long as your nitrogen holds you should be able to detect the leak prior to charging the system.

    that would be a wrong assumption.

    I had a 75HP screw, take out a 90 on the discharge line after 2 days of run time, and after a standing pressure test, 2 1/8 long radius.

    I failed to get the silfos deep into the slip of the joint..................bye bye 500lbs of r-507.

    Well then are you using a vacuum gauge and holding to detect the leak? Beside carefully checking you solder joints how else are you checking prior to charging the system.
