What do you like about this subject?

I love this trade as it is extremely challenging. It allows me to utilize my training and knowledge experience to the fullest everyday.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

There is never a day where I dont learn something new. It offers many challenges which makes it interesting.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

I strongly urge young high school students who are interested in trades to seriously consider the electric motor/winding trade instead of construction electrician. It is far more challenging.
