    Now I've been a tech for around 2 years learning an insane amount of things. Definitely a trade up, sorry, no pun intended.
    Almost everyday is always something new. Can't beat it.
    Welcome Chris...yes this is a chalenging trade.

    Hello all

    Hey guys new member to the site here. My name is Josh and I'm a 22 year old college student looking to break into the Northeast Ohio HVAC industry. My graduation date is coming up here at the end of may 2011 and I will have completed my two year associates degree in HVACR Technology at Stark State College in North Canton OH. I'm told it's one of the biggest Community schools in Ohio and they are always putting money back into there programs. I have alot of questions on how to prepare myself for interviews and finding my first job in the field so hopefully I came to the right place.

    Hi guys! I'm the newest rookie to this site, even though I have @ 20 yrs in the trades, lol! Started out tinkering with units to now actually repairing & selling them. Even though I have the amount of time in this industry, I still learn something new everyday. I also volunteer online as an IAQ Expert on another site, helping people around the world with Indoor Air Quality & Hvac issues. I join this site not only in hopes to advance my career, but to help any of you when I can. I know what's like to have to learn on my own, and I have treasured the few times that some senior techs in my life took the time to share their valuable time & skills on me. All those getting into this trade or only have been in it a little while....it's hard work sometimes, but in the long run, your investment in it will pay off.

    Thanks guys I know I'm not supposed to ask questions here but which part of the forum would be suitable to ask questions about ways to get prepared for interviews and any other tests I should take before I start applying. Right now in Ohio jobs even at an entry level position are kinda slow so I'm thinking I should study really hard and take a shot at the N.A.T.E to ensure to employers I have enough knowledge to get hired any thoughts? Also helpful study material for the test would be really great

    Thanks!

    Old guy,new to the site.

    Hey everyone. Been poking around the site. Lots of good info on the open forum can only guess at what is on the pro sites. Lots of fun watching the pros pick on each other. Remember the only stupid question is one you don't ask.

Is the switch open or closed @ door to start. Also, CN2 bar has 11.4V. Please help to stop the AC chasing an wide open door at our motel balcony rooms.
