STUDENT REVIEW - JASON
I am studying HVAC, I'm gonna be a technician. I am a technician right now because I passed my G3.
I chose North American Trade Schools because it's a hands-ons school. They teach you what you need to know and then you go out and apply your knowledge in the lab.
There is a lot of skilled technicians that you learn from; there is probably two hundred years worth of experience here, yo uleanr form the best. They have the experience, they have the know how. You learn what you can from them, and apply it in the trade.
In five years, I see myself a fully licensed technician, probably on the natural gas pipeline, to get it from where it is, to my hometown and retrofit every furnice in my hometown."
