So I got my letter on Monday 1-13-14 to go to the orientation on Friday 1-17-14 at Empire college for local 3 ibew apprenticeship school part of the program, It says Its from 9:45am-4:45pm. Anyone else going and if anyone else has done this is it really a all day thing and do you need to bring a copy of your hs diploma if you have a college transcript(official) with you. anyone that's in the program all ready when does school start again is it Jan 28th and where exactly is it I've heard it has moved from downtown to up town near Hunter College. I'm excited to finally get started here and the next step is getting my work ticket in next month or so. I know how to get there via train but I'm also thinking if I should drive into the city anyone do that.
