New to the forums, been living in Jacksonville for about 10 years. I'm looking at getting into the hvac field and I'm wondering about the market in Jacksonville currently and also long term, as in have there been lots of layoffs historically, do new people typically get laid off during the slow season etc etc. I'm a 32 year old responsible adult with an excellent work ethic and I've been punching a clock since I was 13 years old, so I'm very eager and willing to learn. I've already considered all the possible negatives I could imagine without actually working in the field like working conditions and such. So pretty steady work in town? More ups and downs than normal?
Also was wondering if the hvac program at FSCJ is a good one? I've been trying to ask around to see if it's a good program but I don't know anyone local in hvac and I can't find anything online.
Thanks in advance for any help, this sites been very helpful so far!
