I want to enroll in electrical training to get my license. I don"t know should I enroll in mail home study, college, trade school or the computer study?

In my experience, the home study field, either mail or computer, is rife with scammers who take your money and deliver little of any use.

Most colleges do not offer electrical training, only electrical engineering & similar degrees.

Trade schools are better (though there are some fraudulent ones there, too).

State-run Junior Colleges or vocational-technical schools are often good.

You might also check with the local Electricians Union -- often they operate a training school & internship program.

Probably the best way is to talk to some working electricians in the area, and ask what they recommend. Where did they get their training, and what do they look for when hiring people?

The very best electrical education that you can get is free from your local electrical union. Find one here www.ibew.org. Stay with it!!
