Just signed up on this site, I am hoping to get a lot of good information concerning what is going on in the HVAC/R world and where new opportunities are. I am 35 years old with experience in facility maintenance and operations but have no formal HVAC/R training. I am contemplating joining my local UA union here in Anchorage AK or doing night school for the next 2 years in a heating and refrigeration program. Tomorrow is my interview at the Local 367 for the HVAC/R apprenticeship, but I do feel a kinda old to be considering a 5 year apprenticeship. If anyone has suggestions I am all ears, Thanks!
