Good luck. I don't think anyone is hiring right now until they figure out what the gov is going to do

go to rigworker.com. and rigs are alot different then commercial/industrial. rigs mainly use multi conductor cables instead of emt or rigid or even aluminum rigid. and packing the connectors can be a messy pain in the *** but other then that it's just basic electricity

Ive already gone through rigworker.com so we'll see if that works or not.I understand that there are a number of differences,but Im up for the challenge.Im well versed in installing switchgear,automatic transfer switches,transformers,VFD's,inverters,buss duct,generators and that type of equp.Branch circuits are a breeze,so I hope Im reasonably good to go.

Rigzone.com is a good place to look. Big outfits will be MMR, Ardent, W-Industries, Ect. Most will pay for your certs, but you will need a TWIC card (FBI Background check and $135), SAFE Gulf (8hr safety course), HUET (Helicopter underwater escape training), and Water Survival (Guess what that is). TWIC is easy, just make the appointment, go in for the interview, and wait for it to come in. I would do this soon though as they take forever to get back. Shouldn't have any problems as long as you don't have any felonys on your record. The other classes I took out in Brookshire at OST Inc., but you won't need those till you go offshore. There is a lot of new build coming up, shouldn't be any problem getting on in a shipyard to get your feet wet then rolling offshore with it.
