Hey guys, my name is Louis from Ontario, Canada eh! I have been in this trade since 1998, mostly as an installer. I have been doing service work for about 2 years now, and have learned quite a bit. During this time of learning, I did not have a mentor or someone (willing to help much) I could ask for advice when I was stuck, or did not quite understand something. Most of what I know now was self taught by educating myself through training courses, reading, and tech support. I consider myself a pro, not because of my cedentials, but because I have never attempted to do anything HVAC until I fully understood what I was about to do. I am very passionate about my job! A couple of days ago I applied for pro membership. Does anyone know how long it takes for a response from the membership committee? I want to be the most knowledgeable technician in my area, and this will help me achieve my goal.
