    I learned sheet metal fabrication from ole Pop Rivet and Rusty Steel, furnace installation from Bern R. Flame and cooling from I.C. Lineset.
    Training is important!
    Practical Training is a must!

    I learned the most from Stu,

    He was an tech with a place I worked for.
    He had 30 yrs with that company, we both moved on.

    Everything he worked on was fixed correctly,
    he wasn't fast at all. Thats probably why he fixed everything, instead of just got it running.
    If you try to fail, and succeed.
    Which have you done ?

    My first job ,still in high school,a guy named Woody Daniels,he came from a different industry,only a couple of years in the trade.

    The difference between him and the experienced guys was ,he didn't BS anyone,and taught me the answer is almost always in the "book" and how to find it.

    He would have loved this site.

    A guy named Barnett, factory trainer for Rheem.
    The way we build has a greater impact on our comfort, energy consumption and IAQ than any HVAC system we install.

    Dn't take this the wrong way!

    The best teacher I ever had was.... me.
    Trying to teach a class at the local trade school.
    Have never learned so much in my life as I did the three years that I taught school. Several times, I would be in the classroom trying to teach the students something and as I would be talking, the light bulb (over my head) would suddenly go on and I would find the answer to something that I did not understand myself.
    Trying to explain to students shows you just how much you know & DON'T KNOW.
