Sorry about the double post i tryed to edit the above to include this message but it would not allow it.

As a helper with Electricians you'll be hauling cables, cutting wires. Some openings are there for sure. Check the link below to see if your current experience may help. Met a guy from Ghana a few years back, trained o be an Electrician in the UK, came to Canada, for a few months he worked at a Warehouse until he landed an Apprenticeship. TO my knowledge he studied the modules, passed, so he got the book work done and started filling in his work hours for Journeyman certification.
