If you do paid training by the company, what's the engagement? Under what contact are you going to work?


I a Tampa resident,, went the paid training route with Schneider, I am very happy. Dm me if you want more info.


If you can afford to finance through the school it will certainly give you more freedom than a BAD paid training company. Paid training company might ask for a year in exchange with terrible pay and terrible work conditions. Whereas if you pay yourself you can jump to another place if you don’t like something, say you do paid training and leave for whatever reason, you’ll then have to pay for the course. Unless you find a good paid training company
