Thursday, October 11, 2018   Apprentice Spotlight: Dominick Henry

Meet Dominick Henry, a Fourth Year Commercial Electrician Apprentice with WECA and Member Contractor Helix Electric. He started becoming interested in building a career in the electrical trade after serving in the Marine Corps as a basic electrician. He says, "The WECA Apprenticeship program provides professional growth within my career. It allows me to go to work and school simultaneously without the financial burdens of college. The hands-on work experience and knowledge gained from classes has given me a solid foundation of what it takes to become a successful electrician. The apprenticeship provides more hands-on learning while obtaining real work experience in the field."

Dominick loves pursuing a Commercial Electrical apprenticeship because it "can make a positive impact on the community and I enjoy the heavy-duty work...Every day is a new learning experience." Instructor Rick Mortensen has been his teacher for all four years, and Dominick can't imagine being taught by anyone else, adding, "He makes learning relatable and applies the material to real life situations. His passion for the craft is evident, which makes it a great all-around learning experience." Dominick also wants to advise new apprentices to take advantage of the learning opportunity and adds that he enjoys working with his team members, saying, "My team trusts me with blueprints and knows that I can handle any task. My colleagues are very knowledgeable and uplifting, and make sure the job gets done in the safest way."

Working with Helix Electric has provided tremendous learning opportunities for Dominick's career growth. He adds, "Once I got indentured into WECA, they introduced me to a variety of different experiences and intricate job sites. I have gained a wealth of knowledge and useful skills in the field to have a successful career. I'm excited for the future with my company as a Journeyman. I'm ready for new challenges and more responsibilities as I move up in my career. I know if I put my mind to it I can accomplish anything."

Well said, Dominick! We hope to hear about your accomplishments as your career continues to flourish!

Friday, September 28, 2018   Electrician Trainee Spotlight: Mark Matias

Today we're highlighting an
 outstanding Electrician Trainee, Mark Matias, currently enrolled in WECA's GetWired Electrician Trainee program. After meeting his fiancé's father, who owns and operates an electrical company, Mark's interest in becoming an electrician was sparked. He says, "I didn't just want a position somewhere where a robot could replace me in ten years," so Mark began looking for convenient, yet informative online classes that fit his schedule. Many programs failed to offer Mark what he was looking for, but when he found the GetWired program it seemed almost "too good to be true; the schedule was perfect and the classes extremely informative."
 
Within a couple classes, Mark noticed how positive his experience was. "The fact that you can sit in your own home, relax in a comfortable environment compared to being nervous and going to a new school, I think, is one of the keys to WECA's success. You get to learn without the anxiety so you can focus more." His experience in the 101 class taught him "the basic fundamentals of the PIE chart and learning how to search through the Index of the NEC, which I think are key points in your "forever" knowledge of becoming an electrician." Learning in the hands-on labs also became a positive experience for Mark in that "once you actually perform a lab hands-on, compared to picturing it or listening or reading about it, it becomes more of a habit and a nature. And you need that especially for a job like this. Like they say, practice makes perfect!"
 
Mark has some great advice for potential Electrician Trainee students. "Be dependable; we have to be there to figure out the problem and fix it... it takes a lot of knowledge and common sense and it definitely requires motivation. If it was easy, everyone would do it."
 
Thanks for the words of wisdom, Mark!

Thursday, September 13, 2018   New Requirement for Residential Solar Energy System Contracts


A message from the State of California Contractors State License Board.

New Requirement for Residential Solar Energy System Contracts to Take Effect January 1, 2019
 
SACRAMENTO - The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) is notifying the California construction industry that effective January 1, 2019, contractors who install residential solar energy systems will be required to comply with a new consumer notice requirement.

Assembly Bill 1070, Stats of 2017, Ch 662 established  Business and Professions Code (BPC) section 7169. This new law requires the CSLB, in collaboration with the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC), to develop and make a solar energy system disclosure document available on its website by July 1, 2018.  The disclosure document must be provided to consumers prior to the completion of a sale, financing or lease of a system. CSLB posted online a proposed one-page Solar Energy System Disclosure Document on June 29, 2018 and indicated the document was pending PUC approval.

At its August 23, 2018 meeting, the PUC approved Final Resolution M-4836 to endorse PUC staff's collaboration with CSLB to draft consumer disclosures required by AB 1070 and approved the Solar Energy System Disclosure Document posted on the CSLB's website.

Contractors will be required to comply with this new requirement beginning January 1, 2019.

Some of the requirements of BPC section 7169 include:
  •       Solar energy system companies must provide the Solar Energy System Disclosure Document to consumers printed in boldface 16-point font on either the front or cover page of every solar energy contract prior to completing a sale, financing, or lease of a solar energy system to be installed on a residential building.
  •       The disclosure document and the contract must be written in the same language principally used in the oral sales presentation or the marketing materials provided to the consumer. English and Spanish versions of the disclosure document are available on CSLB's website in English and Spanish. The contractor must translate the document into other languages, as necessary.
  •       If the sale of the solar energy system utilizes Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing, the PACE Financing Estimate and Disclosure form may be used in place of the new solar energy system disclosure document. The PACE form is available on the California Legislative Information website and State Assembly website.
PACE contractors must still comply with the current home improvement disclosure requirements of the Contractors State License Law (LINK).

BPC §7169 also contains provisions for the development of further disclosure content for residential solar energy systems contracts. To that end, CSLB hosted a meeting of stakeholders on August 24, 2018 to seek industry and consumer input on the development of further disclosure content. Please stay tuned for new Industry Bulletins regarding possible additional stakeholder meetings and possible future solar energy system contract disclosure requirements that will be implemented through the regulatory process, which will provide an additional opportunity for public comment. 

CSLB hopes the requirement to include the Solar Energy System Disclosure Document in the contract for residential solar energy systems will reduce misunderstandings between contractors and consumers and help our licensees improve their relationships with customers.

Friday, August 31, 2018   Apprentice Spotlight: Michael Finner

Meet Michael Finner, fourth year Commercial Electrical Apprentice! Michael is working with Bergelectric Corporation, who also have many other WECA Commercial Electrical Apprentices. He says that working with fellow apprentices is a lot of fun, but they also challenge one another in knowledge and techniques daily. Michael adds, "I've been fortunate to work in many aspects of the trade with Berg: underground, deck work, slab-on-grade, rough-in, lighting control, trim and finish, minor troubleshooting, etc." Michael says that he is greatly looking forward to continuing his work with Bergelectric after graduation, adding, "They've invested a lot in my education and training which has vastly improved quality of life for my family. I look forward to returning the favor."

When Michael is at WECA's San Diego training facility, Rick Mortensen is his favorite instructor. He adds, "Rick's very patient. Even if a student doesn't understand a concept, he makes sure to break down the information until they understand, before we move on. His experience in the field pours out in the classroom. He has many, many tricks of the trade to pass on to students."

So why did he choose to join the electrical trades versus another educational avenue? Michael enjoys working with lighting controls, saying "I enjoy being able to study, understand and put together complicated systems. There's a feeling of accomplishment when things turn on and operate the way the customer expects." He comes from a family of tradesmen, and after time in the Marine Corps, Michael wanted a reliable income for his family. He says, "With WECA I get paid alongside my apprenticeship, versus working my way through college and piling up student loan debt."
Michael also has some great tips for being a successful apprentice with WECA: "Come with a great attitude, be ready to learn, and push yourself. There's a lot of information and it doesn't come easy to everyone. The instructors are patient, knowledgeable and willing to ensure you understand the material....this is a career, not just a paycheck. Invest yourself in your education and invest your money in quality tools."

Well said, Michael, and the very best of luck in your career!

Friday, August 31, 2018   Instructor Spotlight: James Hall

Please welcome James Hall, Apprenticeship Instructor! After getting a Master of Science in Natural Resources Management and Wildlife Biology, James anticipated a very different career. But shortly after James completed his Masters, a friend offered him a position installing simple electrical systems, and the rest is history. Finding that he preferred the electrical field, he signed up to take the very first Get Wired course with WECA instructor Dan Bierly back in 2006. His successful progression through that program qualified him to join the WECA team as a part-time instructor by 2011. And now, he's joined WECA full time. He adds, "I really wanted to give back to the program that has provided me so much." James was also a tutor in college and a teaching assistant in graduate school, and teaching feels like a natural fit for him.
 
James and his wife moved to Sacramento in 2007, where James began commercial and industrial work. He was able to work on a wide variety of projects including commercial offices, retail, theaters, manufacturing, schools, and restaurants. For the past 6 ½ years, he's also been working at Aerojet Rocketdyne. James states, "I started as an industrial maintenance electrician; however, for the past year I was a construction superintendent for infrastructure and manufacturing construction projects on the plant."
 
James's teaching philosophy is collaborative. He says, "I prefer to engage with students as a facilitator or coach....I like to ask a lot of questions and have stories shared--both theirs and mine. My goal is not only to teach someone to install a given light fixture, but also to teach them to read a wiring diagram and the cut-sheet so they can install any light fixture." His advice for apprentices is: "The electrical field is wide open, and there is always something new to learn...view your time as an apprentice as an opportunity. Stay positive, patient, and be the one to volunteer."
 
So what keeps him engaged in the trade through the years? James says, "I am fascinated by electricity. Electricity is all around us, and an important part of so many things. It occurs in nature, it is in our bodies, we use it to travel, to think, to build things, and simply live." A wonderful point to share-welcome, James, and we wish you the very best of luck here with the WECA team!

Friday, August 31, 2018   Introducing "Service Technician - General Residential," WECA's online, self-paced course geared for



We've unveiled our online, self-paced course, which is also our first course specifically geared for Residential Electrical! 
"Service Technician - General Residential" is a 16-hour course geared toward residential electricians, or those training to become one, looking to become better service technicians by gaining the skill set required for diagnosing and troubleshooting common residential electrical issues as well as working with customers. This class includes the use of scenarios that simulate residential service calls to help train electricians in working with customers. Scenarios also cover best practices in utilizing the information provided by customers to help systematically diagnose problems, conduct tests, access a well-stocked service vehicle, replace defective equipment, and submit invoices to customers.
WECA's Senior Education Advisor and Curriculum Development Lead, Rick Labon, has designed the course to effectively teach students the proper methods and practices to succeed as service technicians. Labon explains, "There have been very few training resources out there for someone seeking the skills a residential electrician needs to become a successful service technician. That means, historically, residential electricians have had to rely upon trial-and-error learning, which is neither a safe nor economical way of acquiring the necessary skills. This "Service Technician - General Residential" course has been designed by me and WECA's subject matter experts to take the guess work out of what a residential electrician needs to know. We've replaced that guess work with knowledge gained from years of service expertise. All of the modules are based on tried-and-true methods which we teach through practice activities using real-world scenarios that residential electricians will actually find in the field."
Get more information and enroll yourself or an employee in this course here or by calling us at (877) 444-WECA.
