That's great mate since your have your PR why don't you do an apprenticeship? if i was you i would be a linesman i am an Irish electrician and have done a bit of lines work in the past here in Ireland. i believe its huge over in canada with it even having its own 4 year apprenticeship. i believe in canada the trade is called Power Lineman. it would be one i would be defiantly checking out if i was you. your so lucky not that your PR you have so many different apprenticeships to choose from i have checked out canada's apprenticeship training and it seems to be a great set up. unlike Ireland when we become redundant no help is giving to us at all. it seems canada is leading the front and training up top notch apprentices. Also you could be a construction plant fitter working on heavy duty vehicles defiantly check out the apprenticeship route. i just wish i had PR so i could do the linesman apprenticeship as there is no such apprenticeship here in Ireland. bar the esb and there registered as normal electrical apprentices.

I wish you all the best and be sure to keep us informed on how you get onSmile
