What is an Electrician?
Electrical construction is a dynamic and diverse industry with specialized skills. The inside electrician must be able to layout, assemble, install, repair and test entire electrical and electronic systems. Along with their electrical training, journeyman electricians must have a complete working knowledge of blueprint reading and know the National Electric Code and local codes. There is of course the hazard of electrical shock and burns from “live” wires. Therefore, safe work practice is a must. Electricians must be mechanically inclined, physically fit and enjoy working with mathematical formulas. Electrical work is performed both indoors and outdoors in all temperatures and weather conditions.
