electronics apprenticeship


i havent been real active in the forums for quite a while now .

i am a junior in high school

i want to become a programmer or an electrical engineer, so i decided to enroll in an apprenticeship program provided by my school(i am in the second of three electronics classes.) can anyone tell me what to expect from a job as an electrical engineer? thats what i asked for in the resume i gave to the career resource teacher. i could become a technician but i would rather design and build equipment than fix stuff.

right now we mainly diagnose series/parallel dc and ac circuits. we are going through capacitance and inductance and i think i might be the only guy in the class that is catching on right now. i like my teacher but we go through this stuff too slow and havent experimented with anything new since dc circuits.

wish me luck. i look forward to any replies

Check out http://www.jameco.com/ they sell electronic kits also look at http://www.radioshack.com/ I started with a digital trainer kit it had a solderless breadboard with a built in variable power supply. I remember being in school & money wasn't free flowing so what I did was took any old TV, Microwave, alarm clock, or anything electronic that people would give me. I used what I could from this junk pile wasn't always pretty but it worked sometimes. Good Luck to you
