Name: Charlie Howell
Trade: Industrial Overhead Technician
Year: First year
Hobbies off the jobsite: Spending time with family and doing anything outdoors.
What I like about my apprenticeship: It's a mix of electrical and mechanical.
Why I chose the trade I'm in: I learn multiple trades at once and there will always be a need for crane technicians because factories will always be around.
A tip I've learned on the job: Best way to find a bur or broken wire on a rope of a hoist is run your hands up it with a pair of gloves on and it if snags there is your bad spot.
