Default Question about changing NECs.

I got HMDA cause it was the only HM available at MEPs. I was happy with that and still am, but i heard or read somewhere that I wouldn't be able to change away from 8701 later on, that that was it. Is there any truth to that?? i was planning on entering as 8701 since that's what was available, and then switching to 8404 when i could and try to get into 8427. Am I really stuck with dental assistant??

You're pretty screwed, you'll be a HMDA for a hot minute. HMDA is the hardest to get out of, because its in your contract.. expect to be a HMDA for the next 3.5 years at least.

We had tooth fairies go to fmtb too, so you can still get that training.
