    Depending on how you did in the interview process, but I would grab a person with an AS in HVAC right way!

    I would almost take that over someone with a few years experience, with no real certifications....

    If the job in which you are interested is a management position in a company that values things like degrees, then that will help.

    For almost any other purpose, I would say it will not help, because the typical company is interested in what you can do in a real world service environment, rather than how well you passed a test on the fan laws. JMHO.

    Good Luck in Flint, my dad is pretty slow right now. I also have an Associates from Mott. I would keep bugging Gary every once and a while, or if your taking Al's class right now try to talk to him, I know he has hired a couple guys from school.
