I am a recently job-less worker due to the owner of the company I worked for becoming ill and the company closing. I have a very diverse educational background, but very little in the way of construction. I have done a little labor work in terms of remodeling and ran an office/did helper work on pool heat pumps. Beyond that, I know very little.
I am looking at getting into a new career and am trying to determine if this is even something I can do without having any prior knowledge. I love the idea of the different aspects of the job (reports, helping people, moving around on a jobsite (not being glued to a desk)).
Is the lack of knowledge something that will hold me back from being able to do this? I was unable to find any local training, and with the closest being a 2+ hour drive, it’s not really in the budget to travel and pay for accommodations for the time needed.
Would the courses here be enough (FL resident) or is there another option I should be looking at with my minimal experience and education?
Any and all responses are appreciated, even if they are that this isn’t a good option for me.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read my post!
