You can get a copy of the star test from the hall. Its 400 plus questions from the latest Ive heard. Hydronics,ddc pnuematics,boiler chiller and stupid stuff. Dont worry I heard the B card test was the hardest next to the star test.

yes, the books are yery well illustrated. with you being new in the field I would highly recomend the book"Refrigeration and Air conditioning" It covers it all for a good foundation. JUST FYI you can save alot of money by getting the ISBN number off the back of the book and type that number in google it will give you all the places that book is sold. most scholls purchase the books from other companys like ACCA then double the price. while you can get them online close to their cost. other good books That i have found to be very helpful are books put out by esco press author is Richard Jazwin GO TO www.escoinst.com.

Where do you get a HVAC certificate? Does a Tech school diploma from Coyne American Institute count?

Start hitting the pavement and talking to every HVAC company you see on the street or at construction sites. Tell them you have your own tools and transportation and that you can do service, which a lot of hvac contractors get calls for. Also, let them know you're willing to install ducts as that is a great way to get into entry level HVAC. It's worked for me twice in getting jobs here in CA. Good luck!

Hi,

I recently got my EPA 608 certification, but in order to get into big companies here you'd have to get a journeyman license at least.

However if you get these certifications, do they substitute for the 4 years of practical experience you need to qualify to sit for the journeyman's certification exam?
