You will not find a nicer guy to work for. I use to sell to Covenant Electric when I worked in Conroe. Bump for finding someone.

Covenant did my barn and it was one of the easiest experiences with a sub that I've had do work on my stuff. I was very pleased with the work and professionalism. Somebody would do well to learn the trade with Covenant.

Great deal for a young person!

Not everyone is cut out for college, and I know a bunch of tradesmen with college degrees that are earning more wearing tools than in the cushy office job they set out for.

Apprenticeships are a fast track to success in a trade.

This is a great opportunity. Becoming an electrical apprentice almost 30 years ago turned into one of the biggest blessings of my life. I am a Master Electrician now and from the start of my career I have made a decent wage and and never been out of work for more than a week unless I wanted to be.

I still have 20 months left in Army and haven't decided if I want to continue or not. Hopefully something like this comes around if I decide to get out. I am aircraft electrician on UH60 and CH47. This type of job/career definitely interest me. Hope you find someone.

Hello Jason,

My elder son wants to become an electrician. We're looking for electrical apprenticeships in Texas, but due to the pandemic, practically everything is closed and he doesn't want to take up virtual classes.

Will it be easier for him to become an apprentice at Covenant Electrical Services, if he's currently studying at Lone Star Community College?
I've sent you an email, but received a mail delivery failure notice.

If you click on the direct link or if you copy and paste directly off iOS it will not send. You have to type it in when you are in email and compose etc. Hope this helps

If you do decide to go the electrician's route when you get out. Check with the electricians union in your area. San Antonio would be IBEW local 60. There is a helmet to hard hat program where vets are given preferential treatment.
BTW...Thank you for your service.

Blue-collar skills are quite valuable today. My neighbors love me oh so much when they have electrical issues or need stuff done. Heck...I get places to hunt because I can twist wires and make light You will have that power also one day Jedi.
Piney opening up his company to teach is an awesome opportunity. I made a very good living doing light and heavy electrical construction for 35 years. It is a great job and I loved my work.
Bump for ya and hope you find a good student(s).

I forgot all about this. This was in 2015. Once I got out of the Army I went to Texas A&M University-San Antonio and got a bachelor in IT Concentration. Did an internship and got hired with WellMed. Nothing against the pay of this post but I make a lot more than what was offered here. However, I hope someone was able to benefit from this though. And you're welcome. I enjoyed most of my time in the Army.
