    Where in CT are you from? I live in CT too, hence my nick. I work for an outfit out of Uncasville, and we cover all of new london county.

    Let me know where you are, if you are close enough I will put you in touch with my boss, as he has hired people in the past that are going to school or have just graduated.

    Went to ICPA when it was in Wallingford. Two plus years of nights 2x a week, and some days to speed things up. During the day I "apprenticed" with an oil co., which really meant doing service solo and installations (with an apprentice's "helper")

    Keep one eye on your books and the other on practical experience. There are many, many bad habits out there that should be ignored.

    But like I said before, the greatest tech in the world is worth sh** if he is a dick. Attitude is everything. Willingness to learn and to do anything is key.

    Hey Freeze-I do some sub work for Total Comfort from time to time. Used to do some boilers for Hoffman, years ago, but no more..

    80% of problems are electrical. Learn everything you can on the theory and application of electrical. It is the hardest part to learn, but will pay dividends later
