Hello everyone, I came across your forum while doing a Google search for learning HVAC.
A little background about myself. I was employed in the manufacturing field for almost 20 years. Worked my way up to becoming the Supervisor. But like everywhere else the economy took a hit and I'm now unemployed. I have decided to take the opportunity to go back to school and take some training at age 45
I'm very interested in this field and I am researching schools and such now. Unfortunately we have no trade schools around me that I am aware of that offer this training. It was suggested to take an online course for HVAC but this does not seem very practical to me. I would think one would need hands on training.
1) My question is what would members suggest for someone in my situation for training in this field?
2) Is an online course worth even spending the money on without hands on training?
3) Is this field something you would suggest for a person of my age starting out?
4) Does anyone know of any training around Binghamton, NY
Thanks for any help or insight. I look forward to hearing suggestions from the pros on the forum. I'm off to read more of the forum.
