How is everyone? Well, about me: I am an Electrical Trainee with the state of washington. Pretty much I pay for my own schooling and try to get into whatever work employers are willing to hand me to get my experience needed to take the Journeyman Examinations.

I register for whatever state sponsored NEC and Electrical Trainee approved classes I can afford when I'm able too. Other than that, I am working on getting into Apprenticeship in either the EIC or the IBEW.

I have read through up to 2/3rds of the NEC so far, and have completed two different NEC Study Guides during my free time.

When possible my make every effort I can to work under Journeyman Electricians on Habitat for Humanity build sites. Although I try to stick to commercial work as much as possible.

Welcome to the site . As a former apprenticeship instructor I am a big fan of apprenticeship programs. Don't get me wrong If you can go to a junior college that is good also but the main difference between a junior college and apprenticeship is the on the job experience.
I am on the east coast but There is what looks to be a good junior college in Washington state called Bellingham Technical College. They have several Instrumentation posts on You Tube . It looks like they do a good job.

Good luck with your career I have not had any regrets.
