Job Description for Electrician - Certified

The main job duties for certified electricians are installing, repairing, and maintaining electrical wiring, equipment and fixtures. A licensed electrician must be able to read blueprints and technical diagrams. They also must be knowledgeable about the local building codes and regulations, as well as National Electrical Code requirements. These professionals should also be good with their hands and able to use a wide variety of specialized equipment to get the job done. Additionally, certified electricians should be willing and able to teach, as training electrical apprentices is often part of the job.

Certified electricians must be currently licensed in their state; each state has its own process for becoming a certified electrician, but in general, individuals need to have a high school diploma or equivalent, attend a technical school to prepare for an electrical apprenticeship, and then complete a two- to four-year apprenticeship under a licensed electrician. After initial certification, these electricians can work towards being certified as a master and/or gain certifications in different specialties to increase their career opportunities.

Generally, electricians must be able to provide their own tools and be physically capable of bending for long periods of time and carrying heavy objects. They may have to climb ladders or crawl into confined spaces to perform their job. Electricians also have to be prepared to work outdoors and be exposed to bad weather while working. Good communication skills, being detail-oriented, and having good problem-solving skills are helpful. Teamwork is also important, as electricians often work with other building professionals, such as general contractors, building managers, plumbers, and architects.
