    I will be brief. I am a married military vet with 3 kids. Married 17 years. Kids are teens. I am interested in breaking into the trade and have a few questions: 1. I know apprenticeship takes you all over the states within your region and lasts for about 3 years. How often are you moved...
  3. Electrician Apprentice Forum
    I was accepted into the Local 3 Apprenticeship program 2 years ago while I was pursuing a Bachelor's in Electrical Engineering. They said to finish out the degree so when I join I start at a 4th year wage. I’ve since finished and have been applying to entry level EE jobs but haven’t gotten...

    Hello all, My first day is Monday as an apprentice. However the company I am going to be working for is surprisingly quiet on anything I need to bring. What did some of you need to bring/ know on your first day. Also if I am looking for tools of the trade can some of you recommend some good...

    I'm looking at a residential job where the house has a crawl space that is about one foot high at its lowest point (and two foot high everywhere else), which means my fat arse is not going to fit in there. So, I need to hire a skinny apprentice for one day to help run some wires up from the...

    Hello, new to the site but have found it at a good time because I think I am at a crossroads in my apprenticeship. First off, a few simple questions heading into a renegotiation of my salary with my employer as I finished Level 1 of school with very high marks. 1. Wage Do wages fluctuate with...

  14. Canadian Electrical Forum
    I've received an offer for work from a small-scale EC in my area. I'm trying not to get too excited, because something seems a bit off. He says I'll work for him on a probationary basis for 3 months and then get registered if all goes well in that time. I've been told by many ECs to watch out...

A few companies have offered to take my resumé, and I've always promptly...

    Anyone here on the ready to work list for the ECAH? I called them last week and was mortified to find out that there had not been a call for applications since Aug-Oct 2014... they won't disclose how many names are left on the list to me, a lowly outsider. I figured maybe there'd be someone here...
