Dustin’s Answer

1. Find a technical trade center and enroll in an electrical apprentice program. If it is not a 4 year program, it will have no value.

2. Find the largest electrical contractor in your area. Go to their office and tell them you have enrolled in trade school and aspire to be a journeyman electrician one day. Ask if they have any oportunities.

3. Get all your basic hand tools

Jessica’s Answer

Hi Brandon,
Quick clarification: do you want to be an electrician or an electrical engineer? Different pathways to get to either goal.
For electrician, some people go through an apprentice program (for example, through an electrician's union) or a community college or trade school.
An electrical engineer will likely require a bachelors degree and is more math/science heavy (versus hands on for electrician). You'd want to research a college or university that has an electrical engineer program and see what their requirements are - may be math up to calculus and science up to physics with strong grades to help prepare for college level work.
I hope this helps!
Jessica

Ashley’s Answer

Hello Brandon,
I would suggest looking into trade schools that offer the certification. This would definitely help to provide you with the knowledge and experience once you get started taking courses. Most trade schools will have you complete hours set aside for you to be able to gain experience while you are still completing your course work and these experience opportunities can sometimes lead to a permanent job offer. I hope this helps.

Samala’s Answer

There are so many courses offered these days related to any field that you select.

We have web applications developed and kept in place for opportunities. You can enroll for that course and achieve what you can want to be.

Also there are private and government opportunities if you have nice platform to exhibit your skill.
