I have a friend who will be moving to Tennessee from Europe within the next year. He is currently in the last 6 months of a 2 year Electricians program in Europe. The program consists of alternating classes and on the job work. He also has a bachelor's degree in Computer science.
I am trying to find out for him what the possible career paths are for electricians in the US. Would he benefit from more training there or is he better off doing any additional training here?
I've called a number of places and gotten all different sorts of responses from "he just has to put in his time" to "I have no idea." It seems to me that his education should be beneficial however several people (mostly at the union office) don't seem to feel that it is of any benefit at all.
