Hello.
I am from Canada. I am registered to do my 6 month initial training program before finding an apprenticeship. I was hoping to use this forum for advice.
It did say when I was signing up that this forum was for electricians only, so hopefully being just a student is ok?

Cheers

Welcome aboard and what part of Canada are you from? I am always confused with this pre-apprenticeship stuff.

I was going to make a separate post in the general discussion area with my questions though.

Welcome to the forum, as long as you don't ask us how to fix a screwed up 3way or what size wire to pull for your new hot tub, you should be fine here!

I'm a lower mainlander here. Heard the island is a hard place to work for an electrician. Mainland you'll work a lot, the hard part is making decent money.

Just some scam the schools run, so they can soak some students on tuition and soak the government for subsidies.

They take 6 months to teach kids how to turn a screw driver and make them think they know more than they do.. which is such a blessing to employers. Nothing like having green guys who think they're wire surgeons.

Well see the trick is not to wire up grow ops. You wire up green houses for people to grow Tomatoes in. ;)
