Being an HVAC technician can be a stable source of providing for yourself and your family. Most states have technical colleges that are highly subsidized that can provide you with the training needed to become an HVAC. With that said, I would advise to search for technical colleges in your area and they will provide the requirements to become an HVAC technician. For example, I live in Atlanta, GA. We have schools such as Atlanta Technical College and Georgia Piedmont Technical College at little or no cost. I would highly recommend going this route if that is what you are interested in.
