- Reaction score
I have always said learning never stops, so, even at my advanced age I have decided to further my education. A little history here, after high school I joined the navy, and during my years of service I attended several schools including ACR school in Norfolk Virginia. The class was the same mech. Eng. class taught at Old Dominion U. It was a two year class which was taught in 12 weeks in the Navy. Rather than one class a week we went 5 days a week for the duration of the class, most weekend time was spent studying. After the Navy I became a member of local 250 in the LA area. I had enough Navy experience to allow me to join the union as a Journeyman A/C Tech. During my 35 + years in the trade I spent over 20 years taking very intense Journeyman classes, these were 34 week classes which met one night a week, after a full day of work, classes where 3hrs. a night. Passing grade was 80% and points came off final test score for each class missed over two. Now that I am retired ( 8 years) I want to go back and take some classes, and oh by the way I identify with trans genders. Always want to know what the girls shower room looked like. Wish me luck.
