I currently am in a 12-18 month program at my local community college which has a adjoined tech school for HVAC, WELDING, ELECTRICAL, CONSTRUCTION ETC. I just completed the first 3 months. I guess you would consider this a diploma program since you actually graduate from the school and get a diploma. For each 3 months of completed study you earn a certificate for a total of 5-6 certificates of completion for the given area of study. Besides the knowledge acquired what other advantages are there for moving up in the field. I found a college online, Ferris College, which has a bachelors in HVAC, what are your thoughts?
What other skills would be vital for a HVAC tech and could improve my overall career..I heard computers, business, engineering, welding...?
I thought about started to get studying and getting certified in NATE what are your thoughts? Also besides that I have 1-2 certs from supply houses from 1 day events I have been attending...and other suggestions for someone trying to learn as much as possible ,but also earn credibility and enhance his career.
