I have spoken to various people around the US, over the past,however, what is the pre-requiest
for these particular Trades, for registration.
Refrigeration- How many Hours served and skills required?
HVAC- As above?.
Electrical Inspection- How is this given to person's, what type of back-up knowledge, is required, and experience is required?.
Line Work- Experience and Hours Served+ Skills?.
Please just give me your opinions on this-

You'll find that you get a lot of different answers, because as with so many things in America the requirements are set by each state, and in some cases by each county and/or city.
