I have been an avionics technician in the business aircraft industry and military for about 15 years and am looking for a change. I live in Denver Colorado and was wondering if someone out there can give me some pointers about becoming an electrician, such as how long it takes, what is required as far as education, what entry level wages are like, and who I can call for more info.
I really want to become my own boss someday, and aviation is too regulated and beaurocratic for me. I enjoy doing home improvements and even upgraded my house’s electrical service and added circuits under guidance from the city code department. I think this is something I would really like. Any info would be helpful!
