I’m a little upset by ASHI at this time. I moved to Indiana from Kentucky and live next to IL.

I have to take the class from a school that the state recommends which is almost a ASHI class. I feel that if you can pass the test and you have enouph inspections under you belt, nobody should have to take the class if they don’t want to.
I think it’s a waste of time and money to some people. Luckly I have enouph work in Indiana not to worry about IL. But it still hold me back. Thanks ASHI!
In Kentucky, I also had to take a test to be a HVAC Tech when I moved there. I wasn't required to take a class. The Test was hard but I did pass with studying and past experience. So this idea of just taking a test isn't something new.
It sounds like ASHI told IL what to do.
I don't believe everything ASHI believes in and that's why I don't join ASHI. If ASHI thinks that if you aren't a member of ASHI, then you are not fully trained. Bull!
