    Going to school

    I'm currently going to brandford hall for hvac/r. I'm wondering if it's worth it or if I should get a job,or finish then try to get in a union apprenticeship?

    I may be weird but I enjoy crawling under houses running ductwork. Not to toot my own horn but I've been offered a few lead tech/service manager positions but I like doing what I do which is service, install, commercial, residential, industrial or whatever it happens to be any given day. I did go to a 2yr tech school and got my associates in HVAC. To the OP yes finish school.

    I used to do a lot of residential type work back in the 90's and always enjoyed it . Since 98 i have been working for a small school district so very little crawling involved . Best thing about schooling is it gives you choices .
