What Does an Electrician Do?
Electricians are absolutely vital to a construction project. They handle one of the most powerful forces in the world to light up buildings and homes around the world.
On a regular basis electricians design, install, and troubleshoot advanced electrical components, wiring, and control systems. Almost every electrical professional uses problem solving and math skills to navigate blueprints, program equipment within commercial and industrial buildings, and design or consult their client on the design of their electrical layout.
Electricians also regularly utilize innovative advances such as alternative and sustainable energy systems, systems technology, and programmable logic controllers.
If you decide to become an electrician, you will develop a skill set that few have but many need.
Where Do Electricians Work?
Many electricians begin working for a construction contracting company or a company that specializes in electrical installation, integration, and programming.
Electricians work in a wide variety of environments. These work environments include:
- Commercial buildings
- Industrial buildings
- Residential homes
Because the size of these buildings vary greatly, the scope of work will also vary based on the electrical needs of the space. Electricians can work in or outdoors depending on the job and their company’s niche market and their skills are needed all over the globe.
In short, as you progress in your career, you can work almost anywhere.
After working in the field and developing valuable knowledge and experience, many electricians move into supervisory or management roles, some even branch out and start companies of their own!
