In Maine, you can actually begin training to become an electrician while still in high school. Under Maine’s Pre-Apprenticeship Program, students in 11<sup>th</sup> and 12<sup>th</sup> grades may log 1000 hours of on-the-job training as an electrician working part-time during the school year and part-or full-time during the summer. Pre-apprenticeship hours count towards apprenticeship hours.

Rick’s Answer

Most employers require electrical engineers to hold a bachelor's degree from a school accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET), but some colleges still offer associate programs in electrical engineering to serve as a stepping-stone to a four-year degree

recommended to be competitive - continue education beyond with Masters or multiple degrees that go hand in hand. like Network engineering or mechanical engineering.
