Electricians are responsible for inspecting, testing, repairing, installing, and modifying electrical components and systems. They often work in homes, businesses, and construction sites and generally work as contractors. To become an electrician, one must typically complete an electrician program at a trade school or technical institute, have completed an extensive period of apprenticeship, and have passed a licensing exam. Every day they go to work, electricians undertake dangerous work to safeguard the way we live.
Without them, we would be powerless. Electricians are in high demand due to the shortage of certified electrical officers and teachers. This shortage is expected to persist for decades to come. A well-structured and clearly written electrician job description can help attract qualified applicants.
The responsibilities of an electrician include installing and repairing complex electrical control, wiring and lighting systems that operate from a technical blueprint. Electricians work on electrical equipment and in homes, factories, businesses and buildings, both existing and under construction, to install, repair and maintain energy, lighting, communications and control systems.
