I recently graduated Rutgers University majoring in Politics and have
no electical/contruction experience but am interested in entering the
solar installation industry. There is a local technical school that
has a 10-month "Electrical Systems Technician" certificate. Does
anyone with experience in this field think this is a good approach??
Thank you in advance for your advice!

Fuckwit dimbrain politicians with no understanding of science getting involved
in energy policy.
Why do you even remotely think that's a sensible career option ?

Gee, I didn't realize the guys who install PV systems had influence on
energy policy. I guess I ought to be sharing my views on net neutrality
with the technician from my ISP and asking the mechanic at my car
dealership to do something about increasing vehicle mileage standards.
And while I'm at it, I suppose I should talk to the Army Private I know
about stopping this war....

I usually don't bother to respond to your ramblings, but I thought that I
should point out you assume way too much. Not all Poly Sci graduates become
politicians, and not all politicians are crooks and/or incompetents, especially
not the ones who bother to get themselves properly educated. FYI, My graduate
degree happens to be in Public Administration (not all that different from Poly
Sci) but I also happen to be an electronics technician, licensed electrician,
and a former nuclear reactor operator. Give Larry a break, you don't know
anything about him.

Because he's not remotely sensible.
