I have considered applying and want to do any and everything possible to get this done but as of now I can't get the funding
for schooling and have the slightest clue how to go about it. I have only recently discovered how much I would love it. So I haven't really had the chance to research
anything on it. I'm not sure if they have grants or loans which I would be eligible for and most loans or grants require that you have a copy of the previous or most recent tax return. I have been unemployed since February 2009 and haven't been able to get a copy of my tax forms, just transcripts which aren't accepted. Also I have a poor credit history
and work history
due to the fact that I was incarcerated from June 2001- February 2007. It is very hard at this time for a convicted felon to get a job. I am now living with my sister and doing small jobs around the area to help supplement her income
so I can stay here. I am trying to get out of here because I feel more like a burden to them than any type of help. I don't want to end up a 40 year old still living with his sister. Which is why I am asking for help with gathering information and any other advice. I do appreciate what you are saying and will research
it. Mainly, though, I am looking for some small jobs that I could do in the meantime to help me out untill the point where I can advance to get licensed. Thank you for the response and any more info or advice you can give.
