Hello from Sunny San Diego, California. It was 68 degrees today, damn it was cold.

Currently I have a BS degree in Electrical Engineering. But I am really considering becoming an Electrician. Mainly because I love working with my hands, and doing all that Engineering stuff hurts my brain.
I am in need of advice...
I work full time at a job that makes pretty good money.
What is the best/fastest/most painless way I can become a licensed electrician (in California) without going through an apprenticeship program.

Like I said earlier, I really think I am capable of the work. I believe I have a good amount of the theory in my head. It is just that being a sparkie might be a better fit for me.

Thanks,
-gradys

With an EE the door is wide open. Most likely you will have to go a 4 year apprentice program. Residential, Commercial and Industrial are all different animals.

Have you thought about a Field Service Engineer position?

I think it depends on what you want to do.

Nothing like tamping a ditch when it's 110 out :)
Thanks Mach,
I will look in the Field Service Engineer Position.
