John Mejia, the instructor and owner of I Am Air Mechanical, was super patient and kind. The first day I wanted to quit and John encouraged me to stay and stick with it. Now I have graduated, I have my EPA Certification, certifications, and opportunities.
Make sure you take notes. Notes pay off later on, while working I brought my notes and was reading my notes on the job. If you forget an answer while working, take notes and pay attention.
Advice I would give is to pay attention, it pays off when you put in the work you see results. Pay attention to videos because that is what you see in the field. When the class is hands-on don’t be afraid to volunteer, go to the front of the class, even when you do not know what you are doing.
