I am looking to challenge # trades at once due to the fact i work better with more on my plate. The apprenticeship board says no and doesn't believe someone could done that. Do you know a way around that?????
We need your enthusiam in the industry. Thats awesome. Unfortunately all of the trades that you would want to apprentice in will require a certain number of hours working in the field under a certified journeyman. This means you will have to hold a full time job in each trade you are trying to get in to. Don't underestimate the amount of work it takes to be a carpenter or electrician ect. It's hard work and I think the apprenticship board is correct in declining your request. Don't worry, there is enough of a challange once you pick one and get into it.
There is this arrangment you can make, once you get your license for 1 trade, called a "Double". Not to many employers are aware of it. Once you have your license for lets say Fitting, you go to your employer and let him know that you'd like to get licensed for another trade like solar radiant heating or geothermal heating. He would then make an arrangment with another company, put you at a 4th year apprentice wage, then push your through for trade school for your license. You being licensed for fitting already show your not fooling around, and are dedicaded on furthering your profession.
