Electricians install electrical systems while adhering to electrical and building codes. Common tasks might include installing lighting, ceiling fans, receptacles, switches, and other control devices.
Training to become an electrician usually takes about four years and involves an apprenticeship that combines on-the-job training and classes. Apprentices are required to have a high school diploma or its equivalent on their resumes before they begin.
