Interested in becoming an Electrical Apprentice?

Applicants for apprentice positions must be at least 16 years old and have earned a high school diploma or equivalent. Regardless of the specific career track selected, previous education and training is helpful.

High school courses in mathematics, physics, electricity, mechanical drawing, and shop provide a good background. Successful applicants must be able to meet certain physical requirements and demonstrate mechanical aptitude.

The nature of the job demands that an electrician be in good physical condition and tolerant of working in varied climatic conditions such as heat, cold, rain, and snow. Other environmental factors include exposure to heights using ladders and scaffolds, risk of electrical shock, and lifting and moving heavy objects.
