Electrician Schools

Plug into a bright future as an electrician. Electricians install, connect, test, and maintain electrical systems for purposes such as climate control, security, and communications. Electricians typically learn the trade through apprenticeship programs that combine on-the-job training with related classroom instruction. Most states require electricians to be licensed, and the majority of electricians work in the construction industry or are self-employed. Electricians can earn more than $47,000/yr.
