FROM Kelly Candaele
Electrical Training Institute As part of our series "Modern Trades," DnA visited the Electrical Training Institute, in the city of Commerce. There 1,500 apprentices are trained every year to become electricians, and are combining new technology with traditional skills. The building itself is being retrofitted to become " net zero plus ," providing a unique learning -- and earning -- experience for students. But it's a track they are not learning about in high school. We also spoke with ETI students Errol Cutley, Hollie Enriquez, Daniel Huizar and Andy Hoeks.
Modern Trades The United States has reportedly lost more than 4.5 million manufacturing jobs since NAFTA took effect in 1994. Now, factories have been coming back to the US, but the jobs have changed due to high levels of automation. So what are those jobs and are there enough of them? In the first part of our series called "Modern Trades," we spoke to Kelly Candaele. He’s a writer and filmmaker who served four terms as a Trustee of the LA Community College District. He’s spent many months capturing the stories of the construction workers at the 73-story-high Wilshire Grand Center in downtown LA.
