    Job for one year?

    Hey there,
    my name is Marvin (22) and I´m from Germany, Europe.
    I finished my training as "refigeration systems mechanic" (in German: Mechatroniker für Kältetechnik) this Januar.
    At this time I´m working for the company where I made my 3,5 years dual training.

    The next step in my career is the technical college entrance qualification in September this year.
    After this year i planned to go to the college.

    But I ever wanted to go to the USA or Canada for 1 year.
    Because there is no time after college to to this, I´m looking for a possibilty for working 1 year after school.

    The favorite State for this ist Texas, because i heard about the "hog problem". I like hunting wild boars here in Germany and so i can work and maybe have some nice hours with hunting.

    Do you think, that there is a chance for my plan?

    I hope my english is not to bad.
    Kind regards from Germany
    Marvin

    Let's put it this way:

    Ihre Chance wird so gut wie jeder sein, der jüngste Absolvent der Kältetechnik. Das Klima ist anders und das Essen ist mehr würzig aber es ist einen Versuch Wert. Schauen Sie sich um auf dieser Website und finden Sie die beste Stadt in Texas zu gestartet werden, da gibt es einige gute, einige schlechte. Viel Glück für Sie!

    I agree with Dan.
    You need to put the phone down and get back to work!

    Thanks for the motivation.
    Is there any license i need to do the job in the US?
    Or is the certification from the german office enaugh?

    Is it enough, if a US company want to hire me to get a one year visa?

    Eine EPA-Abschnitt-608-Zertifizierung ist notwendig. Dies ist die Lizenz, die die USA alle Kältetechnik Mechanik erfordert. Es ist ein 4 Teil-Test, der besteht aus 25 einzelnen Fragen. Der erste Teil ist ein Allgemeinwissen-Test. Die 3 anderen Sektionen bestimmen, welche Art von Maschinen, die Sie lizenziert sind, um zu reparieren. Wenn alle Teile korrekt beantwortet werden, werden Sie als universelle Techniker lizenziert. Besitz dieser Lizenz wird benötigt, um zu kaufen und besitzen Kältemittel.

    Ich bin nicht sicher, ob Texas bestimmte Lizenzen zusätzlich zu den EPA-Lizenz hat.
