    The course was at Santa Fe collage and it was for 1 yr and folloewed the nccer hvac/r curriculum sponcered by the north central Fl builders assos.
    It is the same material that is learned in the 4 yr apprentice program,the diferance is that we had class for 6 hrs a day 2 days a weak and had to put in 12 hour of work online which gave us more time for hands on stuff were as the apprentice course is 3hrs a day 2 times a week.
    We got a good intro on the whole feild of hvac/rbut concentraded on troubleshooting,using a meter and reading schamatics

    Were you in the apprenticeship? If so, what happened with that (if you don't mind me asking)?

    Also, here is a website I used to frequent quite a bit: www.employflorida.com

    It is updated daily and I've seen quite a bit of HVAC stuff on there.

    you may want to brush up on your spelling or use spell check, that is hard on the eyes & brain.
