Electrician careers should show steady job growth over the next decade. Electricians learn how to maintain and connect circuits, fuses, and wiring in all types of buildings. They must know how to read blueprints and understand the National Electrical Code, not to mention local and state building codes as well.
Career Education for Electricians
Do you know what ohmmeters, oscilloscopes, or ammeters are? If you're like most people, the answer is no. While college degrees in electrical work are rare, certificate and diploma programs have become more common. Many combine classroom or online instruction with on-the-job education. If you don't know anything about being an electrician, you can choose a program that offers some classroom work first before heading out into the field.
