    Check with local parts house and the manufactuer reps that supply the company you work for...when I was new I went to all the free ones I could and even got the company to pay for some that weren't free.

    Hello--- no I dont think so-- they are refresher courses or latest and greatest courses on new products, havent you ever taken any additional training ? In this field the training never stops.


    thanks guys for the info

    I'd love to hit some more training, but it rare in my area.

    One supplier has evening courses ever 4 or so months. Not great but you usually walk away with something new or remembering something you forgot.

    I went to a 2 day show... er class A/S put on a few months ago. We spent 2 hours learning manual D, 30 minutes learning manual J, a couple more hours with a question/answer part and the rest of the 16 hours was spent listening to how great thier products are.

    I'd love to go to a 2 or 3 day (or a bit longer) where they just teach you. I asked the supplier about going to a Trane or A/S tech school. I guess they used to have them a few times a year down at their plant. But the answer I got was they quit doing that. Not sure if it's true, but either way I guess I'm not going lol.
