Thanks for your electrical training question Alan.
Alan, my motto is your never too old as long as you are willing to learn and then use what you learn.

How to Get Electrical Training and Electrical Experience

Opportunities for Electrical Work and Electrical Training

  1. Electricians Looking for Work
    The only problem is that there are a lot of electricians that are looking for work, but the other side of the story is that there are a lot of industrial electricians out of work and they do not know how homes are wired.
  2. Home Remodeling Projects
    I personally feel that there will always be a great deal of home remodeling work, especially as new energy efficient devices come to the market and we see more electric cars come on the market.
  3. Electrical Education
    I would encourage you to begin your electrical education and keep an eye on all the new technologies that are coming out.
  4. Learn the New Technologies
    One problem I see with some established electrical companies is that they get set in their ways and turn down new work that has to do with areas they are not familiar with and they will not learn about these new devices and technology.
  5. Learn about Electrical Parts and Materials
    One advantage that you have while working at Lowe’s is that you have the ability of getting very familiar with the parts and materials that are used for a wide variety of electrical projects.
  6. Educational Resources
    During your breaks at work you can always thumb through one of the electrical wiring books from the book rack and read about the various projects and the process of installing wiring and opportunities with many fine electrical courses.
  7. Home Electrical Wiring Book
    You may also want to check out my Home Electrical Wiring Book which is packed full of practical electrical wiring from an electrician’s personal experiences on the job.
  8. On The Job Training
    More about Electrical Training and Electrical Courses that are available and you would be wise to try to get some experience with an established electrical company in your area who will help you receive some on the job training as well

The electrical trade is great to be in because everyone uses electricity every day.
