Okay. I asked for some guidance a couple of days ago from one forum participant, and got no reply. Basically, it was (paraphrasing) 'I teach my employees.'
Here is the situation:
One well-versed HVACR tech is looking to make a controlled transition into an increasing amount of controls work. His present commercial HVAC employer is small, and management believes that only the owner needs this skill, so no training is available. (It costs money!! In fact, there is NO company paid training of ANY kind...)
This particular tech has a background in electronics and some Fortran and Basic from many moons ago, but he knows how that kind of thing is done.
One forum member suggested this tech be exposed to some java scripting sites, so he did that.
He is also slogging through the Honeywell Gray Manual.
Are there any courses, say on the local college level, that would be of benefit, such as Cisco, MS, or other networking or programming courses that would be of benefit to this tech?
If YOU were this guy, knowing what you know NOW, how would you accomplish what is being suggested?
And yes, this tech is me.
