Become an Electrician

Becoming an Electrician is not a simple task. But the good news is there’s a clear path to accomplishing this goal: apprenticeship. As one of our apprentices, you’ll learn the electrician trade on the job––and get paid to do it! The requirements for eligibility are simple:
  • High School Diploma (2.0 GPA) or GED (GED score of 255/2300)
  • Minimum of one year of high school algebra with a grade of ‘C’ or better (or equivalent).
  • Must be at least 18 years of age

It’s a long road to becoming an electrician, though. Your physical and mental aptitude will be tested. If you are accepted into the apprenticeship program, here are the main benchmarks you’ll have to reach before you can become a journeyman electrician:

  • Approximately 8,000 hours of on the job training
  • 576 hours of in class training
  • Pass the Licensing Exam
  • Apply to Apprenticeship program during yearly application dates.
