an installer told me that mobile dynamics isnt worth it.. he said "you will learn alot more from just being on the job so i wouldnt even go to the school" any opinions on that?

i have been told the same thing... that going to school can just get in the way of you actually learning... but i think what it would help with is getting you into a place like visions to do installs where you dont really talk to car audio guys as you would in a car audio shop right... tell you what blazin well both move to the same place and start our own damn shop! hahaha

Ya know ive got an idea! there is alot of members on her with reputable shops right?
So if there was someone willing to learn the skill, maybe they could offer some time, Say i wanted to learn and i would come help out for free, just to learn, Cut some mdf, solder a few wires,etc etc. Even help out cleaning the shop, sweeping up and .
And no strings attached, if it don't work out with one prospect move on to the next. I get that there will be some door ***** that you cant stand to breathe the same air with lmao.
I think that peolple that are in the industry should help out those wanting to get in, I mean c'mon lets face it why would i pay for training for a job that pays an average of 10-15 bucks an hour?
Im sure you could write up a contract between the shop and the "pupil" so there is no risk of injury.And if youre a **** youre out of here lol
And im thinking like 10- 20 hours per week depending on the "pupils" present employment requirments.
Could wind up with an awsome employee??

ya that could work out very well for both... i would gain knowledge and experience and the employer would get free labour... (kinda) but ya i think that is a good idea... but who would be willing to do something like that?
