Electrician Apprenticeship

Electrical work involves the installation and maintenance of the inside wiring for lighting and distribution systems in residential, industrial and commercials structures.

Workers generally focus on two areas of this field: construction and maintenance. Work settings vary, and electricians are often self-employed.

A successful electrician needs proper training, a good sense of balance, hand-eye coordination, physical fitness and a solid work ethic. Experienced electricians can become supervisors, project managers or superintendents in the construction field.
