I worked as an electrical apprentice with my experience from Henry Abbott Technical High School residing from the Electrical Shop (2004-2008) Diploma and Certificate of Electrical and NOCTI Graduation.
I worked on commercial and residential job sites running electrical wire, phone wire, conduit such as EMT and PVC. Everything from panel installation to your basic plug and toggle switch installs. GFCI installation's. Managed the stock room and supplies for incoming and outgoing materials.
Machinery experience such as HoleHawg and SawZall, Hammer drill and Pipe Reamers.
Also trained in OSHA and Lock out Tag out. Ladder and safety training.
I started off as a cashier for the first 6 months and transferred to the meat dept.
I wrapped meat packages by hand and use of wrapping machine. As well as cut some products before wrapping. I also would manage breaking down the load of product off of the pallets and stock the freezer and refrigerated meat rooms of items. Then proceed to stock the cases of all packaged meats as well as the H/O case for items such as lunch meat or hot dogs, bacon, etc.
For a period I was also the clean up guy who worked nights and washed the whole department which entailed washing all the knives and utensils, wash the band saws and ground beef machine while finishing by throwing out all discarded meat and cardboard to finish washing and cleansing the floor/ work benches.
Very similar to my electrical experience i installed and ran COAX cable and telephone wire's in customers homes.
I had my own work van i would use to drive to customer locations and proceed to either disconnect cable services at the telephone poles or reconnect. I ran the "drop" (service wire from pole to the side of the house) as well as all in house trouble shooting which was done with a special meter to read cable signals.
Box repair or swap-out, also including modem for telephone and internet troubleshoot or installation.
Router training, Ladder training and certified. EQA modem testing as well as 860 DSPi trained.
I actually have become very versatile since my employment at GAR.
I was hired for and began working on wax sculpting (due to my artistic background and experience). I work on engine parts for the Apache and Black Hawk Helicopter by dipping engine pieces into a hot wax pot to acquire specific measurement thickness governed by blueprint spec.
I shape and mold the wax to create a wax "mandrel" around the engine piece by using sculpting tools and knives. Once the blueprint and traveler instructions are met upon wax and carve specs are met, I then spray each piece with a spray gun filled with silver liquid paint. When parts are dry I touch up pieces and prep them for electroform which then consists of placing parts into a Nickel Electroform bath tank connected by a DC lead rectifier and Nickel plate pieces for traveler required time until plating process is completed.
Since then I have also learned and took upon multiple jobs including Nickel/Cobalt Electroforming Bell Helicopter Heat Shielding for complete Bell 429 Helicopter's (Main Rotor, Tail Rotor, and Swept Tip or End Cap)
Electroform for BOEING MESA Apach Swept Tips.
Electroform for ITTRP and Legacy Heat Shield Helicopter Blades.
Product and Development for all above Mandrel/Shielding design for proper Electroform Production.
I also take care of organizing and filing coupon "dog bones" for our bend and fracture testing upon customer requests.
I am AS9100 trained and certified for all of the above as well as chemical and safety training, anode/cathode Nickel and Cobalt bag replacement and maintenance. Water refill of Electroform Tank/Cells, tank maintenance, shop maintenance, Excel product inventory. Removal of nickel waste. Crane operation and training.
