Welcome to all of the New Members who have recently signed up! Here's a good place to make your first post.

Say hello, tell us where you're from ...

Hello Nick and Andy.

Nick, I've done my time in the paper mills also. It was always amusing to see the looks people woud give you when stopping at the super market after a shift.

Andy, do your best to answer all the educational(school work) questions on your own, and then ask away.

Roger

Welcome to all.

Nick,
I'm sure you've already noticed that we have a Non-U.S. area, should you want to chat about how you used to do things in the "Old Country," and we have several members from Australia and New Zealand, as well as one or two "Pommies" like myself.

And to new U.S./Canadian members, if you have any questions about how we do things in other parts of the world, don't be afraid to post a question in the non-U.S. area. With members in several European countries, somebody can probably come up with an answer to most queries about that funny foreign 'lectric'.

Thanks for the welcome! I am interested in an electrician apprenticeship as stated in my post "Apprenticeship" as some of you may have already seen. Currently I am an electronic tech. I work on flight safety equipment for planes.

Welcome, Newbies! Glad to have you here.

I'm not in the Electrical industry but help put together projects for a gov't facility and often have to find out the details of all types of work to be done on them. I came here for some info and stuck around (and not just for the entertainment alone, Roger.. ) because there is a lot of learning one can do about the industry and life in general!
