Anybody completed one? I am trying to sell DH on the idea and wanted to talk to someone who's done it.

They just re-opened a new application window at our local IBEW, and if DH's greencard comes soon enough to get his driver's license (don't get me started ) I think it would be great if he applied. He's interested but wishy washy.

ETA: I'm in Nursing school, the apprenticeship is for DH.

Mooooom! to  guitar.gifDS (1/05) and whistling.gifDSS (11/05).  TTC fingersx.gifour "ours" after VR on 10/12.

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.
