How did you get started in testing?
Just curious as to how everyone got started in electrical testing. I started out working as a residential electrician helper many years ago and then signed up with my local union to get into the apprenticeship program because it paid more. After working as a journeyman for many years work started to get slow and a buddy of mine put in a good word for me at the testing company he was working for. I was later hired and it wasn't long after I earned my NETA Level II and III certification, now the rest is history...

I started very early on working with the local electrical utility in my area with the line crews. A few years later I moved into the testing division but have since left and now work for a small testing firm.
Found my company through a jobs fair. Its a medium sized test company who was looking for some summer help and I just stuck with it. Later on I was eventually given the opportunity to become neta 2 certified. Before I got into testing I was working as a residential HVAC tech and hated it.
