Hello page, I am Andre I have attented formal training of Carpentry, Masonry, and some electrical. I have continuing education also in Carpentry to keep up with the latest in the building trades. I have only about 4 years total of on the job experience and it is difficult to attend apprenticeship in El Paso, TX. I have wanted to begin my own contracting business, and start small remodeling jobs as a solo builder. What would you recommend I do? Should wait to gain more experience through attempts at an apprenticeship, or obtain more OJT as I do more projects? I have done work with Habitat for Humanity, but my schedule do to being in the military has taken my time that I would be able to volunteer. Your input would be appreciative.
