I would like to add that if you potential hands think the schools with the most "state of the art" training tools and equipment are the best to learn form you'd be surprised. I learned more from a low budget program than most Utility's could ever teach ya! Look for more knowledgeable and experienced hands than fancy training tools and facilities!

Good Luck!
