Ive been doing A/C work since I was a teen. At least 25yrs now. I know I will get a good bashing for this one and mabee deserve it. Im an one man business who most likly will stay that way. I have passed the EPA test made Universal licence but have no Contractors licence. I use a freinds licence to pull permit when nessary. Ive worked my dad's company for years off shore oilfield explosion proofing equip, some chiller systems on gambling rigs, airbalance (never certifyed), newmatic controls, We even built A/C units as a moduel for generator room's offshore. Ones with auto backup that you could walk in while serviceing the downed system. All very interesting stuff hellicopter rides for service calls to an oil rig etc... But none of it makes me any kind of a certified expert. I want to post and read in the ProForm but Im stuck on two points. The place where it asks for you contractors licence, is there a way around that can I use my EPA licence in place. And the other is the donation of around $60, is it worth it? I would like a taste to see, I hate wasting money as I am tight with my money. I would think they would let in anyone willing to pay the donation. And who exactly gets the donation. Im sure it goes to help keep the servers for this HVAC talk.com up and going. Is it a club an organiziation who is the head or treasurer?
