Greetings, From the Pacific Northwest! Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland area geographically writing. I'm not even a green horn yet. At least that's what we called them during my commercial fishing years. I'm 46 and on the waiting list for a non-union electrican training. CITC- Construction Industruy Training Council out of Bellevue. Could be up to a year and a half wait. But hopefully less. Should I brush up on Algebra before school starts? Any helpful advice would be great as I know absolutely nothing about electricity except it hurts when you touch 120 V and pain probably gets worse the higher the number of amps.
