    After you make that expensive repair and you still have the same problem, What will you check next?

    I'd rather not give out location info due to security reasons. I appreciate your reply though.

    I did not know that boiler service and pipe fitting courses were a "top secret" study. Sorry for my ignorance.

    I could recommend several schools but are they near you?

    As a former vocational education instructor, I often tell folks to look for a trade school that offers what you are looking for.
    You can find them in most areas either private or public, night or day programs are often available.

    Some Voc. Ed, trade schools are also high schools.
    Some of these schools offer classes for adults too.
    So look to your local trade schools.
    Best of luck. Please post here as to how things work out.

    I just don't like giving out my location online. That's all. Nothing personal.

    Are you in the Witness Protection Program? Just kidding.  If you are not a member of a Union, you'll have to set your own curriculum. Either way, it's time to pay some tuition $$$.  Get the Following:

    All of Dan Holohan's Books
    All of Siggys Books
    All of Ray Wolfarths books 

    You can scroll through their book lists and just purchase key Books, but you'll have to decide that. What is your ultimate goal here?  Mad Dog

    Hi, I'll add, get Ellen Rohr's books. You need to know the business side of things too. B)

    Yours, Larry

    ps. If you have a local shop you like, see if they are willing to take you on as an apprentice or helper. That will pay you something to learn.

    That's totally understandable, @Hot_n_Cold.

    You can find Ray Wohlfarth's seminar listings here.

    We've posted Dan Holohan's Dead Men's Steam School and Classic Hydronics on our YouTube channel.

    The Esco Institute offers classes and certifications online here.

    The HVAC School is also a great online resource.

    If you're in the NYC area, the Mechanics Institute offers courses.

    In PA, there's PPATEC.

    There is also education available at upcoming industry conventions:
    Eastern Energy Expo
    AHR Expo

    Was not trying to pry into personal stuff. By location I was hoping to get. New England, Mid Atlantic, North West Pacific coast, central USA, Canada, Alaska, Great Britain, Antarctica, Russia.

    Was not really looking for your address and zip code. Some locations for these classes may not be convenient if you are in Antarctica for example.
