    Hi all . I'm a 41 yr old male living in the New Haven / Hartford , Ct area . I'm curently enrolled in a HVACR program at one of our Techinical schools here in CT. Classes began last Monday night and the Instructor as well as some of the "Upper Classmen" have been encouraging us new guys to start looking to get in the trade now .The State of Connecticut regiuires licences and a total of 4,000 hrs of classroom and on the job trainning to take the licensing exams .My question is , other then HVAC agent which I already signed up with ,as well as monster.com , is it possible that a licensed contractor would hire me at this point ,and if so whats the best way to break in to the trade?

    Yes, I think you could be hired. The best way to break in...and stay. Display good work ethics and be willing to start out making little and working hard....eventually you will make the big bucks and it will all seem worth while.

    Cool

    Find the UA Local in your area and apply at the next recruitment. The will place you with a union contractor and school you for free.
