My name is Jeff, and I am 38 years old. I have been in the flooring industry for over 20 years. It has been a feast of famine industry for me, and the economy has created a pretty competetive market that is making it very difficult to make a good living anymore. I am looking for something that will give me some more security with a company as a long time employee, as well as an industry with more demand. It is a little scary starting a new career at me age (at least I think so), but through my searching I feel HVAC would offer me something I would enjoy (hands on work, different locations,ect..) and security.
I am currently looking into a school that will require 4 hours a night, 4 days a week for 10 months. The cost will be $17,700 dollars. This is very pricey, but it appears to be the best equiped school I can find in my area.
So my question is, am I on the right track. Can anyone offer me some helpfull hints. I would like to learn from others mistakes, if there is anyone looking to be so kind as to offer this, I would greatly appreciate it.
