Changing careers with a pacemaker

I am assuming you mean who would hire people with a pacemaker.  A pacemaker shouldn't prevent you from working as an electrician, once you know what precautions to take. I will try to post a link in a moment of an old pacemaker club post.  My advice, get some good training behind you, a qualification and then you will be good to go . . .  and get paid for your efforts.  Life doesn't have to end with a pacemaker.  


After reading some of the contributions in the above link, I think we need an expert opinion here please

Andrè, the last poster on that link is right on, I think.  The only gripe I'd have with his take on the restrictions is a little clarification on RF interference.  Working around AM/FM/TV transmitters is a definite no-no.  Depending on the power of the transmitter, these sorts of places aren't even safe for the general public, much less so for those in this group.

It matters a lot why one needs a pacemaker, as well.  Those who are dependent are going to have, potentially, much more trouble in these areas.

There is nothing in residential electricl work that would preclude any pacemaker recipient.  There may be an issue with some commercial electrical work.]

Not sure where you're located, chip, but some U.S. states offer fully or semi-funded apprenticeship programs. If you're in the U.S., check out your state dept of labor and licensing, and local community colleges.
