Hello everyone! I am a recent high school graduate who has one semester of college under his belt. I was majoring in electrical engineering but I'm finding traditional four-year college to be too slow-paced; I really want to be hands-on and dive right into the electrical field of work. I've been studying electricity and electronics on my own for about a month now and really am considering trying to become an apprentice. So my question is this: how strongly would you reccomend an apprenticeship over four years of college? I'm pretty hands-on and like learning on the job, so I'm wondering if JATC is the right place for me.

It is too late to apply for this year's apprenticeship class, so you have time to decide. I would recommend signing up for the Residential program and going to work. After a month or two you should be able to make an informed decision.
