Cool Hello From a Future Apprentice!

Hi everyone, my name is Asad

I joined ElectricianTalk because I want to become an Electrician apprentice in the near future, and I wanted to get a heads up on any questions that I had or will have in the future. I want to be terrific with my work, and what better way to keep staying safe and learning new things than joining a forum, so you can answer questions and learn how to deal with a problem before you get afflicted by it!

I currently live in Toronto, Ontario. I need to get my Physics and Math credits from an adult school as I didn't take them in high school, however I did take Math in college and got 100% in it in my second semester. However the Local IBEW 353 Union doesn't seem to accept college credits, so I need to get the adult school over with.

I am currently 21 years old and was studying Computer Programming and Analysis. Most of you may wonder why I decided to change my program, even though I was doing so well. The reason why I because I like to work hands on and I can't sit in the same place forever. If you think about it, computer programming is like construction, you build foundation from the ground up for a website, or program and there is some pride in your work. I just never liked the idea of a desk job, and just took the program because it made my mom happy.

If you guys would like to know more about me please go right ahead and ask.

Hey I appreciate it buddy! I was just taking a look at some right now, better off being in the know now than later and anxious about it.
