I am currently in the military and will be seperating in 2 weeks. I have spoken to the local union back home and will be on my way to getting an apprenticeship through helmets to hardhats (I was told that I just need to show up but I'll see how that goes). My major worry is that I have no HVAC experience. This didn't bother me until I have been researching the job and it seems many people with prior schooling and experience start apprenticeships. I just bought a study book for HVAC so I hope that helps. My main question is for anyone that has either gone through an apprenticeship program or has any knowledge of whether or not they will start from square one. I really don't want to be that guy that just holds everyone back, but I also want to be proficient at my job.
