What is the best way to become an electrician?

I am currently employed in an office job. however, I want to be an electrician. Because of financial responsibilities and having to support my family I can not just dive into this. I need to make the transition in such a way that it does not affect my household in a negative way. I have tried to get into the IBEW apprenticeship program but they are not accepting any new applicants at this time and there is no word on when they will. I have thought of going to a trade school.
