Get professional training
HI I am Robert Ray and I am raising money to further my professional career.
I have been a electrician for 15 years and a good one at that. I enjoy my job most of the time, but I think it is time to take the next step and become an electrical inspector.
I bet you are asking, "How is that the next step?" Well, for someone like me who loves to read and interpret laws, statutes and codes, this is the next logical step in my career.
Not only that but I would get to ensure that safe and effective electrical installations are being done in my area. The construction market where I live has seriously taken off and there is now a shortage of qualified inspectors to keep these projects safe and on track.
So here is the deal, I need to be certified as an Inspector by the International Code Council to be considered by most municipalities. That certification takes training and testing.
And that takes money.
At nearly $100 dollars per course and $200 per certification the cost of being fully certified is just out of reach for me.
Getting these certifications will get me started on the path to a better career and a position that I can keep as I grow older and less able to keep up with the new guys coming into the trade.
Not only would I be thankful, but so would my family. I would no longer have to worry so much about on the job injuries, lulls in the market, or just being aged out of my job.
