Residential Electrician

residential-electrician
$2,495.00 (USD)

OVERVIEW

With booming infrastructure, new energy conservation projects, and an aging workforce, demand for skilled electricians is on the rise. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that jobs for electricians will increase 9% through 2030, with around 84,000 job openings for electricians estimated each year.

The Residential Electrician course is designed to teach you the fundamental skills needed to work with residential electrical systems—no previous experience is required. You will learn electrical theory, wiring and installation, safety procedures, use of common hardware and materials, use of building plans, and more. You will also have access to more than 30 virtual simulations that simulate hands-on practice and 10 lessons on customer service, which is one of the most important soft skills employers are looking for and a skill that will help you grow quickly in your career.

In addition, you will be prepared for electrician licensing tests, generally required by most states and localities. While tests differ, you will need to understand the common situations in electrical work, including the use of the National Electrical Code®, local electrical codes, circuits, and various types of wiring methods.

By course completion, you will be prepared to pass your state's electrical licensing exam and start an entry-level career as a residential electrician or electrician apprentice. Please check with your state, county, or city for residential electrician licensing rules and whether this course's hours will be accepted towards licensing. *This course does not count towards getting a Massachusetts Electrician license.
