According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, there will be as many as 74,000 new positions for electricians in the United States in the coming decade. With a projected 10% rate of growth from 2018-2028, the electrical industry is healthy and growing. With this strong growth, it is a great time to consider training for a career as an electrician!
Electricians can work in a variety of environments, from residential and commercial to new construction and remodels. Electricians may work to install new electrical systems, or may be responsible for maintaining and updating older equipment. An electrician’s work may also include maintaining and repairing large motors, complex equipment, and control systems in business and factories. Residential electricians install wiring and troubleshoot electrical problems in homes. Electricians work with their hands, in an environment where they are constantly problem-solving and are continually learning new skills on the job.
