Hi all, my name is Charley Viehland. I'm enrolled in the Commercial Electricity program at the Columbia Area Career Center in Columbia, Missouri. I graduate in June, and will be ready to start full time as an apprentice electrician somewhere in the USA! (any suggestions?) I'm glad to have found the profession that I really am happy doing after 4 years of college and another 4 years at a dead end job. I'm anxious to hear about everyone's experiences...
Congratulations on choosing an interesting career (well, everybody in here would say that, wouldn't they? ).
There are many man-years of experience resting with ECN's members, so come on in and make yourself at home. With our varying areas of expertise there is usually somebody around to answer almost any question.
residential, commercial & industrial construcion, fire alarms, burglar alarms, low-voltage, service work & maintenance, troubleshooting, automation, medium & high voltage, fiber optics, controls, and I'm sure there are others...

Hey Charley, welcome aboard! I did the 4-year college gig too. Hell, my graduation ceremony was in Carnegie Hall, can you beat that!? Anyhow, the electrical field can be very rewarding. You'll learn skills that nobody can take from you or deny, unlike the corporate world. So if this is what floats your boat, so to speak, well then full steam ahead...go get 'em!
Best 'o luck, Andy
