It's better to have skills you don't need, than need skills you don't have; especially when it comes to separating yourself in a competitive work environment.
I'm sure many people will be able to point out my flaws in this video, but that is precisely why I started doing HVAC CAMPs.
To create a judgement free environment where people can develop their skills by practicing, not by listening to others preach.

It was a honor to offer my services at a local Veterans of Foreign Wars Meeting.
Veterans are often targeted by For-Profit Schools in order to qualify for the 90/10 loophole, which requires them to get at least 10% of their funding from sources other than federal financial aid.
Those who sacrificed so much deserve better than this, and I'm willing to play my part.
