With booming infrastructure, new energy conservation projects, and an aging workforce, the demand for skilled electricians is on the rise. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that jobs for electrician will increase 14 percent through the year 2024.
The Electrician Training course is designed to teach you general and electrical safety procedures, use of common hardware and materials used in an electrical system, how to read and understand building plans, and more. 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 electrical theory, the National Electrical Code®, local electrical codes, and the various types of wiring methods and materials.
By course completion, you should be able to pass a residential electrician licensing exam and start an entry level career as a residential electrician or electrician apprentice. Check with your state, county, or city for residential electrician licensing rules and whether this course's hours will be accepted towards licensing.
