    there aren't any hard feelings ......

    most of My friends are in the local
    i quit years ago ....

    why, I ... have even done the Steam Trap Training & Sizing seminar more than a few times.......
    and .....
    I don't view it as "training the competition"
    I view it as helping a Individual, be a better mechanic...

    i was simply curious how they had changed the ciriculum


    'round here, work is slow, and the guy's are pretty bent about the money to administer the pkg
    esp. after a couple months of layoff, when they have to pay $600/mo for benefits

    that, and Target Money ...
    essentially, the mechanics are buying thier job, at a dollar an hour .....

    a little work around here would go a long way

    Who said anything about needing a test to get overscale? A reading comprehension course may be in your future.

    It always does, your wasting your breath discussing it with him. I gave up years ago, he has his opinion and I have mine.

    Well I've jumped into this Nate/Star test debate before, Nate is residential/light commerical and the Star is Commerical/Industrial. The Star for me was far more difficult, we took it in 2002 and they wouldn't let us have calculators or the formula sheet they let you have now, we spent a lot of time memorizing formulas we didn't use. Oh well we passed 9 of 10 and have a preety good study plan know, we're passing 65% of the test. No contractors here paying overscale for passing the test, but many good tech's get overscale already.

    The download has always worked for me.

    As I understand it this is the only HVAC test that is ISO9000 and ANSI certified.

    They tell me there is a pool of 500 questions randomly drawn for the test.

    Ah No! The Great Pretnders? Oh let me go out on a limb here, you must work for a Manufacturer? OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO,I'm impressed. You need to lighten up. I am so sorry for not showing " proper respect" to an obviously know it all factory tech. Having worked for a factory shop, you are by far the most knowledgable tech's (tongue is firmly planted in cheek).
