    I got my degree from OCC in Auburn Hills in 1990; Environmental Systems Technology was the title of the program. It was 79 credit hours. After my first semester, I opened the phone book and called a bunch of HVAC shops asking if they were looking for an apprentice.
    I went and applied and was hired. I have been doing this now for almost 18 years. 3 years ago, I started my own little business and love it. The customer files keep growing every month, some months more than others.

    Anyhoo, thats what I did and Im happy.

    Is the school thing a must? It would probably depend on who you ask. I have been around this field my entire life. My father has been doing it for 30 plus years. I have been doing this for a living for 14 years. I went to tech school for about 6 months. The company I worked for at the time paid for it and then decided against it. I never went back. I learned O.J.T. I may have been able to learn quicker if I had finished,but if you are determined enough you can learn it. I started in residential, 5 tons and less. Then up too 25 tons and less, then Lieberts, and now I work on screw and centrificual chillers. Take notes and don't be scared to ask questions. If you get on with a good company they probably will pick up the tab for school...after you sign a work agreement with them.
    You are who you are and where you are because of what you think.
