Earning an electrician license grants access to a field that offers opportunities to specialize in new and fascinating areas, and wages that rival those of any other technical trade. Even as one of the most respected, stable and lucrative of all the skilled trades, there are few dedicated resources on the web for people looking for training opportunities and information on how to advance in their careers.
Here at ElectricianSchoolEDU.org we set out to change that. This website is the first-of-its-kind resource dedicated solely to providing information on vocational training programs, apprenticeships, state and jurisdiction licensing laws, and career opportunities– all in one place.
Who We Are
We are a small, independent group of online publishers dedicated to developing user-friendly websites on career preparation for technical vocations and trades. Since we are self-funded and have no outside affiliations, we are free to develop the kind of unbiased resources students and tradespeople look for when gearing up for school, researching possible career paths and preparing for licensing exams.
We spoke to apprentices, experienced journeymen and master electricians for a first hand account of what it’s like to train on the job and work in the electrical trade. For information on licensing requirements, we turned to state and jurisdictional licensing boards. The end result is a comprehensive resource with an inside perspective that provides the information future apprentices and experienced electricians need.
We couldn’t have done it without our talented writing staff:
By consulting with licensing board members, trade school representatives and licensed electricians, we set out to develop the kind of website every electrician wish they had when they were deciding on a vocational school and preparing for apprenticeship.
Simply put, our mission here at ElectricanSchoolEDU.org is to provide future apprentices and licensed electricians with a comprehensive and well-organized resource designed to make career preparation and progression easier.
We worked hard to anticipate the questions our readers are likely to have, and even harder to provide clear and complete answers.
