Why become an Electrician?

Electricians are very well respected in the construction industry.  It takes a very specialized set of skills and knowledge to work with electricity every day.  A career as an Electrician can provide a salary substantially higher than the national average.

Why a Pre-Apprenticeship?

Receiving the necessary training from a pre-apprentice program can mean having an apprenticeship or not. Remember, as an apprentice you are asking someone to hire you. If you do not have the necessary training, you most likely will not be selected as an apprentice, as they will most likely go with someone that already understands the basic electrical fundamentals. This program not only provides you all the necessary training you need to start your career in the electrical trade but it will also provide you a much better chance at receiving an apprenticeship with an employer.
