I turn 20 years old next month, and it's about that point in my life where I need to move on. My mother's on and off boyfriend is an electrician of 40 years. I asked her to ask him what it would take for me to be an electrician. He said I needed to find someplace that would hire me as an apprentice. That's fine and dandy and all, but I need more information than that. I don't know how these programs work. I was hoping that someone here would have some information about this. I'm not going thru college. Just wanted to get that out there right away.
