    Sounds nice, but being a business owner I would be looking for skills associated with HVAC diagnostics/repairs if I were to hire you as a service tech.

    Such as: Controls experience, furnace experience residential/commercial repairs, models/brands, boiler experience - hot water/steam - residential/commercial, RTU experience - packaged/split systems, refrigeration experience, economizer experience, sheet metal experience, gas piping etc. etc.

    One just doesnt get out of school and be given the keys to a service van and let loose....this is a recipe for disaster.

    You may be hired in as an apprentice until such a time that your skills can be proven or that you acquire enough hands on time to be given those service van keys.

    Good luck!

    good advice. I do have some exp, and I tried to convey that. I will try and insert more specific things exp. wise.


    I do expect to start out as an apprentice, thats cool. Its getting my foot in the door for an interveiw with employers, not having them assuming I know nothing and am wet behind the ears.
