Question by MaryAnn: What do you need to do to become an HVAC journymen in Maryland?
My husband has worked in the HVAC field for many years but never bothered to go through the process to get his jounymens. He recently filled out the paperwork and $ 10 fee to get his aprentice liscence (which apparently is needed to get your jounymens). Can anyone explain the process to me, specific to Maryland?
My husband does work for a liscenced HVAC company, so he can easily get the hours. He is also CFC certfied.
