Hello all,

I just started working for someone here in California, and was wondering about the whole Electrical Trainee program here. I have been researching it as much as possible, and it doesn't seem like it's being enforced anymore. Even the phone number for the Electrician Certification Unit that does all of this stuff has been changed and isn't updated on any forms or anything. I also tried to call around to the closer "approved schools" for more info, but they've been closed all weekend for Veterans Day. They also don't list any info on their sites, with the exception being the Union run programs and specialty schools, but I feel that calling them would be a little biased towards getting you into their programs.

Any info on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

Join the ABC and be patient. When they put you on a job work hard, have a thick skin and leave your cell phone in your car.

Seriously, you tried the below web address and didn't get the information your looking for?

http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/ECU/ElectricalTrade.html
They give you information on there, but none of the schools that they link to that are close to me have any electrical classes, except of course for the Union programs. I tried calling the DIR phone number on their forms and that number has been changed. I also tried calling one of the schools to ask them about it, but the counseling office was closed for the holiday.

I was just looking for more info as far as whether or not this program is still active.

I already have an opportunity as far as work is concerned, but I haven't had a chance to ask them about it yet either.

just go to work and don't worry about it, I don't think they enforce that.
especially if you're an apprentice

Ask other electricians what school to get into,also look in the supply-house they usually have information about schools in your area.
