Vocational
Electrical

Electrical workers are employed in the construction industry, installing and maintaining electrical sources for homes and businesses.

One of the best options for future electricians is to seek training through a vocational or trade school prior to gaining employment. Students that have already been trained can often attain a higher position of employment after graduation.

Many electrical companies and electrician organizations sponsor and run apprenticeships to train workers, which can last from two to four years and include hands-on training and classroom construction. Students will take courses in blueprint reading, mathematics, first aid and safety, and electrical codes and practices. The majority of states in the U.S. also require electricians to be licensed, which usually requires completion of training and passing an exam.

As an electrician, workers will know how to install wiring systems, using various tools and testers to accurately gage the flow of electricity. Electricians also replace broken electronic equipment and faulty wiring, circuit breakers or lighting.
