Lots of good ideas. I am trying to learn all the skills I can. And yes, I am checking on welding classes for this fall.
I went down and signed up for the redhat classes this morning. The lady told me it is actually an advanced mining course. Two months long, underground and surface mining certification, special mining electrical safety class, "in mine" training, resume' help and job interviews. $200.
I like that they give you "in mine" training so that I can find if thats what I want to get into.
Also got an interview at Sears tomorrow so looks like I might have a job in automotive. As long as they can give hours that can work with my class (which the guy who helped me fill out the appliation said shouldn't be a problem) I think I can get it.
