I am self employed with a high school education. I have taken some college classes at HCCC. I have just recently moved here and could not fing a job that paid more than $10.00 per hour. I cant live on that. My fiance goes to USF full time and I pay the bills.I was forced to find any kind of work so I got networked with property investors here in tampa. I have 15 yrs Experiance doing home repairs on rentals. I am now working pretty steady on 1099. Self employed I do my own books, bids, and invoicing.
I would be a great asset at any company but it is so hard to find one that pays well with a future. So many employers are used to employees who take advantage of them. Therefore Good hard workers have to stay under theradar to make a decent living. Or work for pennys.
I am currently making $25,000 per year in Tampa Fl. I work for myself I do home repairs and maintenance. I freelance. I want to provide a better life for my kids and target the HVAC service field with the biggest market, without having a huge staff and overhead. I am looking to get into the HVAC field. I want to do service calls working for myself without a big company " legally"
I want to know the best way to get started with my HVAC education. There are so many different HVAC programs and degress where do I get started?
All of the tech schools certificates and Hvac degrees cost like 30,000. I do not want to get in crazy debt just to make a living, like I am now with a huge student loan to pay off.
What is the best school or company here in Tampa FL, that would give me the best education on HVAC not the shinyest diploma????
Arent there any good Employers who know how profitable it is to replace themself with self seficient, motivated, driven individuals?
The best way to learn how to fix anything is to do it over and over and over.
A school can charge as much as they want for an education there are still people out there with college educations I see them all the time holding a sign on the median.
The HVAC business is just like any other its all on who you know.
So here I am I thought before I do anything I would belly up to the social network and get some feedback.
Is it still worth getting into the business??
or do I just keep on keepen on.
