The world we live in today is wired. In these modern times, everything around us is somehow affected by electricity, and our dependency on wires and circuits only grows as technology advances and our civilization progresses. As a result, we have a constant and increasing need for more skilled, qualified, and experienced electricians. Anywhere you go, anywhere you live, Electricians are in high demand!
Electricians install, maintain, and repair electrical power, communications, lighting, and control systems in homes, businesses, and factories. Job opportunities for Electricians are on the rise due to several factors: steady, continuing growth in the construction industry; older equipment in manufacturing plants need continuing repair, maintenance, and replacement; and constant demand for repair and service in homes and businesses of all sizes, According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, there will be as many as 60,000 new positions for Electricians in the United States in the coming decade. With a projected 9% rate of growth from 2016-2026, the Electrical industry is healthy and growing.
Electricians are paid well too! According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS), Electricians’ average annual pay in 2017 was $54,110. Salaries for entry-level positions can vary widely depending on factors such as location, but a Electrical Trainee (ET) certification, achievable through ATI’’s program, can propel beginning Electricians to higher rates of pay. With continued on-the-job learning, motivated, dedicated Electrical Technicians will find a reliable, profitable career path in a career with lots of room for advancement.
