Electrician Certificates and Programs

Home > Certificate > Vocational > Certificate in Electrician
An electrician typically learns the trade by obtaining a certificate combined with an on-the-job apprenticeship program. You can begin classroom training before applying for an apprenticeship, which can enable you to start the apprenticeship at a more advanced level. This moves you through the program faster, since a complete apprenticeship takes approximately 4 years to finish. Classroom instruction, which can be done through an online education program or in a traditional classroom, will generally include:
  • Blueprint reading
  • Electrical code requirements
  • Electrical theory
  • Mathematics
  • Safety and first aid practices
You may also choose to take courses in communications, cranes and elevators, fire alarm systems, and soldering. On-the-job training under an experienced electrician will typically begin with:
  • Attaching conduits
  • Drilling holes
  • Setting anchors
And then moving up to measuring, fabricating, and installing conduit, and installing, connecting, and testing wiring, outlines, and switches.
