NACHI has a free library of tapes and books plus you get a lot of help. I join last summer and learned a lot and have definely got my money back in help and learning opportunities. If you haven't join yet that is a good place to start.

Kenneth,


Get on the internet and look. You will find expensive, cheap, long, short, etc. You need to evaluate each one from your own perspective. As you were told, ask questions. You need to base your choice on what you already know of building construction and maintenance (all systems ) and what the school can teach you. If you have little to no knowledge, you need to seriously consider attending a school, if you have a good knowledge, then take a correspondence course and contact a HI that will allow to ride along for some inspections.
