I am a 45 year old heavy equipment operator that needs a career change. I am interested in embarking on an electrician apprenticeship, but I am wondering what the perception is out there about older apprentices. Are employers hesitant to take on an older apprentice? I am willing to work up north until I get my 3rd or 4th year, then I hope to get work here in the Elk Valley (BC). I am in good shape and am eager to learn. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you!
