I am Interested in joining the trade!
I have thought about this decision for a while now, and I have my mind set.

I am asking what books/online courses/programs would you recommend for a trainee?
I am open to all suggestions and recommendations:thumbup:

Thank you!:)

The Mike Holt books were easy to soak in. Get the copy of NEC your jurisdiction is using also. I used to have a copy of an Electricians Dictionary that was pretty handy. Dont remember the name though. Helped as a study aid when a term came up in a section I was reading but wasnt in the glossary.

Ugly's field guides basically got me through my first year of being an apprentice in the field (after vocational school). I would definitely recommend BOCES or whatever school you have in your area. Glad to see some other young guys in the trade.
