Anyone here have any first hand knowledge of Education Directs online educational website or know of anyone who has enrolled? I did a search here on hvac-talk and found a few other sites offering similar programs but couldn't find anything about E.D.
I've been working as an electro-mechanical tech for the past eight years and decided that I wanted to try my hand at HVAC. I do have a little experience with this trade, but I figured having some proven educational background would help with my efforts in landing a job. Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of attending a trade school or technical college right now since I'm working full time.
I already have some of the materials and equipment that this program offers its students (multimeter, textbooks, Universal EPA certification). But I'm willing to incur the cost of these *extra* materials if the diploma from this "nationally accredited school" is worth anything.
I figured I'd check with the pros here before plunking down 700 bucks for something that just isn't worth it. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
I've included a link to their website. If this is construed as advertising, feel free to delete the link.
