Great forum! I should have made an indroduction before I posted, sorry. I am a second year inside wireman apprentice and work in and around Cincinnati, Ohio. I am very happy with my decision to to get into the trade and feel it is a very rewarding and respectable line of work. The contractor I am with is small and very diverse. I go from working on an automation line one day to bending pipe the other and back and forth!! I love it because I'm not in one place all the time. I get to see all kinds of interesting things and places. Looking forward to learning alot and I'm sure this forum is a good place for good information!
