Electrician Kitchener Waterloo
Looking back on my path as an electrician, I would say it all began when I was 16 years old. As any boy that age, I was excited to get my first job and begin making my own money.

That first job ended up being at an electric company in the Kitchener/Waterloo area, where I helped wire houses. As with any job, I started from the bottom and had to work my way up. Luckily, the licensed technician that I shadowed in my first year was really great. He showed me a lot about the trade, and I gained a better skillset and confidence every month that I was there. Slowly I began to work by myself more, and eventually reached a point where I was ready to work on my own.

I am really grateful for how I learned my trade, particularly since I know that nowadays, it takes a lot longer to go from an apprentice to a journeyman.

I’m not one for shortcuts, but anything that gets me out into the world helping people sooner is a good thing in my book.
