Cornelius McDonald, an Alexander Oaks Apartments resident, never thought that being an electrician would be one of his career choices. In March 2019, Mr. McDonald attended the Career Opportunities event where he was able to receive valuable information regarding a variety of debt-free skilled trades from Skillpoint Alliance.
The Pre-Apprenticeship Electrical program is four-weeks long and throughout the program, students learn the necessary skills, like device box wiring and conduit bending, to enter their first year of apprenticeship with either IBEW 520 or Centrex IEC.
Cornelius graduated with the OSHA 10 Certification and obtained his Texas Department of Licensing and Registration (TDLR) Electrical Apprentice License on May 17th, 2019. And with the assistance and support from Skillpoint Alliance, he is now in the electrical industry working for Tumlinson Electric, LLC.
Cornelius is thankful to have the ability to provide for his family while working in a career he is passionate about and plans to start his own business in the future.
