    Hello everyone,

    My name is Damon and I started in hvac back in high school. When I wanted my first summer job my father would only agree to me learning a trade, so I became a helper for a rough in crew. Now more than 20 years later I am a working supervisor doing startup and warranty.

    I joined your community when searching for some ways to reduce costs and speed up duct blasting process. This new energy star requirements are very time consuming. Anyway, after browsing you forums I'm glad I joined and look forward to sharing my experience and learning from y'alls.

    Hi im chase, when I was younger I would take things apart and my dad would have to help me put them back together. But my dad has been in the business for 34 years and knew a bunch of people. One of the guys he knew has a control company and he got me a interview with them and I started 2 weeks later. I have now been at this company for a year, and have learned tons and have been all over our company doing many things. I started out in trend/ novar and johnson install, and now I am programming and commissioning for trend/ novar. I have learned tons in the past year and learning something new everyday.

    I took a few minutes to scroll back in this thread. Looking at all the new guest we have here that are in the business or just starting out. Many of you are still "Guests" and have not applied for Pro.

    I totally understand busy or not posting as much as you can to get to 15 post but I assure you the benefits of becoming a Pro Member here are many.

    Look at my Signature. There is a link to become a Pro Member. It's is free and only takes a few minutes to fill out and send. So, let's get off the stick guys and gals. Become a Pro Member by sending in your application today. It will take a few weeks to be reviewed by the Membership Committee.


    Thx.

    Listen to Dad, children,(LOL) Becoming a pro member of this forum is one of the best things I have done. Making contacts is job #1 in the controls biz and this is one great site to start making them with! Best of luck, and don't feel like you won't make it, if you know your stuff, you'll make pro!

    No thread should ever be about "how long does it take".

    We, on the Membership Committee go through a lot of unnecessary work to determine if applicants are qualified or not, simply because we get so little basic information sometimes.

    The Membership Committee very much appreciates those applicants who have provided enough information that we don't have to go searching for things such as licensing, areas of expertise in the industry or even your correct HVAC-Talk.com username.

    As in everything else in our industry, the quality of your application is determined by the amount of usable information provided. When we get garbage input, we only have garbage to work with.

    This week alone, we have received a minimum of a dozen applications that do not qualify for pro-application for very basic lack of input from the applicants.

    That's the Membership Committee Chair speaking. So guys.... listen up. He's not here to keep you out of Pro but if the info is not what he is looking for then it will not only delay the process but irritate Mr. Chair.

    Understood, however, I'm sure I'm not alone. I am still in classes learning the trade. I will be taking the EPA exam next month. As of right now my list of accreditation is very short in the HVAC field. I am very interested in learning and because my knowledge is short I couldn't give any advice in fixing anything right now nor would I fee comfortable doing so. So my posts for now are general posts.
    If you were talking car modification I could provide you with tons of info and back ground. LOL

    The most importan purpose of this site is the betterment of the HVAC industry from every aspect. That means that we want everyone who is working on a daily basis in the HVAC industry to have as much access to associated professional forums as is possible.

    NO ONE who has chosen the HVAC industry as their professional field should feel like they are not qualified. If all you have is your HVAC schooling credentials, that is all you need. We need the questions of those with the least amount of experience as well as the answers for the most experienced of us in order to continue keeping up with the needs of our chosen industry.

    In one way or another, every professional conversation has the opportunity to enhance our overall knowledge. We on the Membership Committee want applicants to become professional members. Our job is to get as many qualified members professional status as quickly as is possible so there can be more discussion.

    If you are working or going to school full time for the HVAC industry, and you have the qualifying amount of posts, get your application along with something showing your HVAC affiliation in to the Membership Committee so we can tell Dad to open the gates to a vast amount of information to you.
