Hi! My dh graduated from an IBEW apprenticeship 2 years ago.
They treated him so well throughout the whole thing, and he's been very successful since becoming a journeyman. He keeps getting promoted
Dh was an electrician in the Navy, and he was at the top of his class every year of the apprenticeship.
He says you should pm me with your state, and he can tell you more. We're in Indianapolis. Your local union is the most important factor, although of course there are checks and balances built into the organization.
