This is my certificate of completing my apprenticeship ,. This is from the United States Department of Labor. After four years as an apprentice , I became a journeyman electrician.
I served my apprenticeship at Delco Electronics of General Motors corp. I didn't want my whole name to show...LOL Most of you know my full name.
Here's the graduating ceremony. That's me in front with a curly perm. :):) After 4 years of on hands training and classes of blueprint reading, algebra, geometry, trig., physics, ac-dc fundamentals, refrigeration, So many I can't recall them all. Then there's classes of safety things, such as confined spaces, asbestos removal, hi-lift safety, lock-out safety...on and on...
I had a lots of homework, while going to the classes and working at the same time. Work days go to school twice a week at night.
When I topped out(getting thru school and becoming a journeyman) , the fellows I worked with made me this pink tool pouch. I still have it , but never used it at work. LOL
Here's my work pals in one of the departments I work in. We did construction, truck shop, board repair, It was a great career, good benefits, and pay.
I truly enjoyed my job . Most of the fellows I worked with , were like brothers to me. I knew there wife's and children' s names. I miss working at times.
Recently I gave my tools and tool boxes to my grandson Skylar. This is one young man who will use these tools.
Hope all of you had a great weekend. I sure did. Even though we work some of it here. The weather was perfect. Enjoy the short week. XO
