Work Experience

Automotive Apprentice/ Truck Body Electrician (08/05/2008 – 01/01/2010)

Worked within the electrical department of General Body and Equipment's truck body manufacturing company. I have extensive experience in twelve volt electrical.

Last Employer: General Body and Equiptment

Contact Person: Chris Taylor/ 780-721-4276

Responsibilities: Reading and interpreting the schematics drawn up for each truck. This included both where the electrical components of the body were to be installed and how the installed electrical components tied into the twelve volt system currently equipped in that particular truck.
