    Sorry I haven't...If you are deaf or hard hearing you may have a small uphill battle for some technical areas....like listening for a soft click of a thermostat. All in all I believe that they can be overcome as long as you hone in on sensitive touch . Good Luck on your new career path.

    I am deaf, and I've worked in HVAC as an installer, service tech, and sheetmetal fabrication in Residential, Commercial, and Hospitals for 15 years. And now I have my own business with 10 employees. Your biggest challenge is going to be your co-workers and customer service, not the trade itself. Good luck, and feel free to e-mail me if you want to know more (my e-mail is in my profile).

    For what it's worth, I've never met another person in this trade that is deaf. I met one plumber, that is all.

    If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

    I use to work with a guy at a bacon plant with a very large ammonia compressor room that refused to wear earplugs. Lol he didnt hear so good.
