Re: Thinking of going to school for RHVAC
This is a service field where you will ALWAYS have a job. Go to school and get training and certified . Most schools have job placement offices. Just out of school you will probably assist another mechanic for a while then you're on your own. Work is hot, cold , dirty and wet any or all at the same time! That's the worst part like any job has but what I get out of it is fixing it, troubleshooting and great satisfaction of figuring out the problem. People love you when they get heat back. Even tho you work for a company you are on your own in the field and a phone call away from help from the other mechanics. There are many different types of jobs in this field. Service work, facilities work, heat/cooling,refrigeration of all kinds. I say it is a good career choice. I started out in the late 80's and now Im a facilities manager for a school.
Camp co=owner asked me the same question as op and that's what I told him. That was about 18 years ago and he started his own successful HVAC business about 5 years after he got out of night school. He has dome mighty well.
