    Electrical Trade Question
    Hi.
    I'm interested in becoming an electrician in Washington state. There isn't any local apprenticeship program. Right now I'm considering taking an online course at Penn Foster which I believe would make me a journeyman, but I'm wondering if this a good choice. Do you need to have a minimum number of hours of hands on experience to become a journeyman electrician in Washington? Would it allow me to enter the trade?

    That won't make you're a Journeyman.. that would make you an apprentice. Journeyman title is earned after actual sufficient actual work experience. In conjunction with testing if memory serves me right. (I used to know a former Electricians Union President, actually I still know him..I just haven't seen him in years)
