Program in Norfolk is a good one, but I still like the one at NWICC in Sheldon, Iowa.
They have an excellent program if you are willing to apply yourself. Job placement is almost always 100%.
Salary range varies depending on the type of utility or contractor you get on with.
Yes, I am happy with my job, started out as a groundman and have worked up to a Jouneyman.
Municipals $40-a high of 60,000
Investor Owned $60-70,000
Starting out wages take 30% off of these.
These are an estimate of journeyman wages, with overtime which varies.
Words of advice, pay attention to us old timers, you will see us do things a different way that any college will teach you. Sometimes the old school is not all that bad, lot easier to make your tools and groundman work for you.
Ok, young bucks go ahead and tear this apart.
