Default Greetings from Berlin MA

Greetings from Berlin, Mass
I'm what you might call a born again Electrician. I ran a good size company back around 1980 doing industrial and commercial work, but left the trade after 15 years and got involved in networking software and hardware. Having recently been laid-off and given the terrible state of the networking industry I have decided to open shop again. Not the best of time to be starting out, but it feels good to be back. This website has been extremely useful in the process of getting back up to speed. Thanks!

Hi Bill. Best of luck to you.

Welcome Bill.

Did you manage to keep your license over the period of time you were out of the business?

Yes I kept both Journeyman and Master Licenses. I stayed up on the continuing education requirements. I always had in the back of mind that I would return to the trade in some capacity when I reached semi-retirement. It's a better gig than the sticker guy at Wal-Mart.
