About Electricians

Residential and commercial Electricians work with the electrical wiring in homes and other buildings. They install new electrical components and repair existing ones. There are other type of electricians that specialize in industrial and technical wiring like those that wire airplanes and ships. There are two types of these electric tradespeople: linemen, who work with the high voltages of electric utility company distribution systems, and wiremen, who work inside buildings with lower voltages. Wiremen generally work in one of five specialties: industrial, light industrial, commercial, residential, and low-voltage wiring. Some electricians also specialize in installed devices such as fire alarms.

There are three levels of electrician training and expertise: apprentice, journeyman, and master electrician. An apprentice usually must take several hundred hours of classroom work and is then contracted to work for a period of three to six years. During that time, apprentices earn a percentage of a journeyman's salary. A journeyman has completed the apprentice training and has been certified to be competent by the local, state, or national electrician's licensing body. A master electrician has usually completed seven to ten years of work and has passed an exam that indicates knowledge of the National Electrical Code (NEC).

Requirements to become a certified apprentice electrician include:

Not all electricians in New Jersey are licensed. To become a licensed New Jersey electrician, you must be at least 21 years old, have a high school diploma or GED, and at least five years of hands-on electrical experience. The application, with a $100 fee, is sent to the Board of Examiners of Electrical Contractors in the state.

When hiring anyone for an electrical job in New Jersey, it is recommended that you seek the services of a licensed electrician. Be sure to verify the credentials before you agree to the job.
