hi everyone!


Most community colleges have courses for electricians. Most citys/states require that you go through an apprentice program to get a license as an electrician. That comes from working for a licensed electrical person or company.

hi everyone!


I tried becoming an electrician after being laid off as an engineer.
I got an equal mix of "underqualified" and "overqualified".
I eventially got an offer after a year and a half, just after I got another job.
Hope you have better luck than me.
