INSTRUCTOR: Amy England
Beginning my career 10 years ago, I successfully completed the four-year NCCER
apprenticeship at New Horizons Regional Education Centers. After obtaining my Journeyman’s
License, I rapidly began climbing the ladder into the Project Management side of the trade.
Passing on education and training within the field, my passion turned on like a light bulb. Now,
as a Master Electrician, I teach the apprenticeship for adult training at night and commit full time
during the day to get my students workforce ready!
