Question Navy Electrician looking for info...

Hello ALL,

I am an electrician in the US Navy. I was wondering how i find out how much my military experience as an electrician will credit me for experience when i get into an apprenticeship program when i leave the navy in 2010. I love being an electrician, so if i have to start from the beginning in the apprenticeship program i will, but i figured with a little over 3years experience being an electrician in the military, it should count for something. Thanks for reading this and for your helpful responses.

~Chris

CE or EM? It makes a difference. I got credit for 2 years and I was a CE1 when I got out.

If I was you I would look into the utility side. E&I Tech, I&C Tech. www.ictechs.com

It doesn't have to be nuclear work. Most power plants will hire X military over most guys. With the increase demand for energy and lack of skilled crafts this is the best industry. You could also get into Protective Relay testing. Big bucks.

Best of luck.

Welcome aboard the forum. I would call the local closest to you and ask about the helmets to hardhats program. I would look into the utility aspect as well, see what gives the best advantages.
