When it is said that BacNet is a better protocol than LonWorks, I die a little more inside.

Any idea how long before I can view The pro info?

It depends on the load the committee has. It could take a week or three. Right now the committee is pushing them out pretty quick so I would say by this time next week you will have your pro status if you qualify.

It's been five weeks now working my new position. Everyday is interesting as I get back into this field. I worked low temperature R-12, R-502 & back in the 80's-90's over a period of 17 years as part of my responsibilities. Some R404A on newer equipment too.
This past week another interesting job. We have a ice cream shop in town. The owner makes all of his own product. He has a huge garage with a few walk-in freezers & at least one walk-in refrigerator and three race cars! Unit diagnosed with a defective compressor on an old R-12 Tecumseh condensing skid which was converted to R409A at some point in the past. I was tasked to install a new Copeland compressor. The install went well along with the new tubing arrangements. Purge, pressure test, evacuate & recharge, mostly very basic work. Of course no job goes easy as I discovered a defective fan motor upon start up. A box fan kept the condenser cool overnight, new fan motor installed on Sat morning. Refrig temps at 37F. The customer back in business. I am rewarded with a dish of the best ice cream in town.
