How can I apprentice as a computer repair technician?
I really want to become a computer repair technician. Ever since I was a little girl, I've wanted to be an electrician. Once I became a teenager, my love for computers took over. I love taking them apart, building them, fixing them for people (usually software issues, although I really love working with the parts). But I have absolutely no training and no real sense of direction other than "What if...I'll try this!". It's a whole lot of fun and I can do it for hours.
But I really can't afford to go to school right now. Being paid is not an issue, I'm really just looking to learn the ropes. I don't have any intention of owning my own business. I am not currently working and there would be no demands on my time. But how would I go about finding an apprenticeship position? I live in Philadelphia by the way.
