    Well, for the first time in nearly 25 yrs, I was in school the last 2 days.. :eek1: :D

    Man, I loved it! :bow:

    2 day certification course on VacuFlush toilet systems for the boats, aka Pooper School. :haha:

    I was pretty well-versed in the subject, but did learn some things and was briefed on new products out I hadn't seen yet... Also got to meet and greet other mechanics from the northeast, lots of fun and informative...

    I hope they send me out a bunch more... Hopefully Merc school in March.. It's nice to test all the stuff I've self-taught myself over the years... I'd really like to pile up some certifications, I've certainly been around long enough where I should have them...

    Still kicking myself over the 1 question I got wrong on the final test... 98 tied for high score in the class tho, so all good... :D

    I spent 3 days last week in Mitsubishi training. 3 days of BASIC electrical stuff. It was so boring, but today when I helped someone else pass their bypass test(so he didn't have to go for the same class) I realized it really did refresh my knowledge of basic electrical circuits. There is always something to learn,a nd doing so on someone else's dollar while getting paid, is extra nice.
