i'm in school right now taking up the hvac trade,we're only workin on airconditioners and heaters in class,we don't have refrigeraters,but i told that we can apply aircondition/heating work to fixing refridgerators and its the same priciple it's this true? as long as i learned how to fix ac units and heaters can i still get a refrigeration license when i finish school since ac/heater work "applies" to refrigeration work? or is aircondition work and refridgeration work 2 different animals?
one more question,we were told that we have to have 3 years hvac experience to take the state exam to get a state license,i know all this is true,but we were told that our 9 months schooling will count as 2 years of experience and after we finish school all we need os one year of experience out in the field to add 2 our 9 months of schooling to equal 3 years of expience. is it true that 9 months of schooling=2 years work experience?
by the way yall this whole program at our school is learning the residental work,just lettin yall know since this is the residental hvac section of the forum.
