Howdy, everyone!

I've been reading this forum for a couple of weeks now, and am truly impressed by the caliber of people that belong to it.

I'm new to the forum and the business. I'm leaving a career in IT for a more stable career as an electrician.

At the moment, I am looking at going to a vocational school in either CT or NJ. Can anyone recommend a good school in either of those states?

Also, in addition to unions, are there any other professional organizations
that are beneficial to belong to? I am really interested in talking to some experienced electricians that I can speak with to get a better idea what the career is all about.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give, and for what I've already learned just reading these threads!

Welcome to the forum. I would look into Union apprenticeship, it wil be worth it in the long haul.

Thanks for the info. That's the route I'm leaning toward at the moment. How difficult is it to get sponsorship from the union? The IT world doesn't have unions (geeks are pretty anti-social at heart :laughing:), so this is a new world for me.
