If you love working with your hands and perhaps have ever had a dream of one day owning your business and working for yourself then take a look at becoming an electrician. Every state will have different requirements regarding how to become licensed but it usually involves training and experience.
The electrical training can be done at one of your local trade or vocational schools and can be completed usually in less than a year. These programs are all hands-on and are set-up to work around your busy schedule. If you already have a contractor’s license then often that experience alone will help qualify you to take the state exam.
After graduation you’ll need to obtain the proper number of training hours required by the state. These hours are under the supervision of a trained electrician so you can learn the ropes and trade.
