Default New, hello

So lets see, i completed a residential apprenticeship program in 1991. It seemed like the day I received my card, the field dried up, my shop went non-union and i was out of a job. Worked mainly cleaning ducts system up until about 10 yrs ago. Got into roofing then back into the union and was sent to a marine job and have been in the same shipyard for the last 5 or so years. I was sent out to do some work on the terminals and realized i have forgotten just about every aspect of my apprenticeship. Im on this board to hopefully re-learn, revisit my residential apprenticeship!
Looking forward to reading alot...

thanks, just talked with guys at JATC. I'll hopefully start taking the HVAC Service Tech course in Sept. I figure the older I get the shipyard will do double the damage. So, it's time to get focused on something less labor intensive...
