I am seriously considering getting into the HI business.
I have been researching different schools and training programs, there seems to be several different certification programs out there. Very hard to tell from a beginners perspective which is the way to go. I have a few schools that have bubbled to the top of the list.
There is one in Las Vegas that sends 4-6 weeks worth of training before you go the class so that you can better prepared and 4 full inspections after the week long training class.
There is another in Utah that half of the class in in the classroom and the other is on actual mini-inspections (2 full inspections at the end of the class).
I do have some construction (framing) experience, nothing extensive.
I live near Sacramento California - I have not had any success in finding a running HI business to join for the first year or so.
I guess also a real key to success would be join one of the associations such as NACHI.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your time and experience.
