    The have a program that works with veterans, now they just have to get an apprenticeship training position to open up and then I am the first on the list.

    Lower mainland bc.

    caddy, congrats

    I could not get any local hvac companies to respond to my resume so took a job as a mechanic with low pay in the mean time to pay the bills.

    I wonder why refregeration mechanics get paid the best of all the trades?

    Twice been told that a refrigeration mechanic here in vancouver BC Canada starts between 11-15 per hour. I know, it sounds low but yet to verify that starting pay. Been told that after 4-5 years the refrigeration and or hvac tech after obtaining his red seal journeyman status can get paid anywhere from 39-42 dollars per hour. Those are some pretty outstanding numbers. So why is this trade paid the highest?

    Anyway, started a class in physics. Kind of ironic that this class was for a different trade. I scanned though the book lo and behold, it has refrigeration diagrams and formulas in it
