I am new to the forum and have read posts about basic entry level skills expected for apprentice level tech work.
I agree its good to know brazing electrical troubleshooting and how to charge, pumpdown, purge and vacuum.
I went to a 30 week course and had tons of notes tossed at me and now I can only get work as a insulation man or helper on installations.
I went to school for a career beyond the level of work that a person who doesnt even speak english can do. I see there are many immagrant who didnt go to school working in the instalation side of this work. I dont want to be a guy who paid for school and is equal to a guy who does taping all day or filters.
I have pretty decent notes. I know its up to me to make sense of it all and have the basics. I dont feel confident but know that if I got these things down I could be closer to a service job.
I have a few questions about my notes on things like purging, vacuuming charging and pumpdown.
I considered my self a pretty good student. It just seemed to fast to absorb the materical. Then after working in instalation and maintance a bit I can see I need to be stronger on these things.
Will someone work with me on these things in email?
I know it seems like alot but I really think I have a good understanding and just want a confirmation of my methods as accurate.
I am Jlucky14@excite.com
