Electrical Apprenticeship Programs
Apprenticeship is a training program where you earn wages while you learn a skilled profession in a specific field, such as construction.

Apprenticeship combines classroom studies with on-the-job training supervised by a trade professional. Apprenticeship programs are available through many local and state agencies, so you may chose to participate in a union apprenticeship or a non-union apprenticeship.

Much like a college education, it takes several years to become fully trained as an electrician. Unlike college though, as an apprentice you will earn while you learn.

At first, you will make less money than skilled workers, but as you progress, you will get regular raises. Once you have mastered the craft, you will receive the same wages as a professional. Advancement potential
Apprenticeship graduates usually advance more rapidly than other workers, so higher-paying jobs come more quickly. Some apprentices move into supervisory positions within just a few years. Equal Opportunity Apprenticeship Programs must provide equal opportunity to all who are interested. These programs are eager for qualified women and minority applicants.
Valuable skills credential
When you complete your apprenticeship, you'll receive a graduation certificate valid anywhere in the U.S. that demonstrates you have the knowledge and skills needed for successful performance as a professional in the electrical occupation.

Electrical Training Resources

To keep current with new electrical wiring procedures, electrical code discussions, new materials, time saving products, tools and the latest news about the electrical industry an electrical trade magazine will be very beneficial.


The Division of Apprenticeship Standards states that Electrician Certification may be required in your area. Contact your local apprenticeship office for more details.

Apprenticeship Programs Outside the United States


I'm interested in the apprenticeship program. But how can I join?
I live far away in Nigeria.

I do not have information about apprenticeship programs outside of the USA, but I'm sure there must be a way for you to learn the electrical trade for your area, either through a local school or an online or distance learning program. Don't give up, explore all of the options that may be available for you.

Electrical Career Seeker


I'm 31 and considering becoming an electrical apprentice in the state of Washington. I have kids and want a career. I want to make the best decision possible.
How do I chose a program to join? What do I look for?
Is 31 an unusual age to become an apprentice?
Any idea of the job outlook for the state of Washington? I live in Spokane.
What starting pay should I expect as an apprentice?
Any help comments or suggests are appreciated.
Thank you


Dave's Reply:
I don't believe age is a big factor at all as long as you are willing to learn and work. I do not have specific info about Washington state, however I do know that electricians earn a very good wage, and our lifestyle depends on electricity. Energy alternatives such as solar and wind power have great potential as well. Find a program in your area either through the state or a local organization or possibly taking classes at a local college will be very helpful. The course study should focus on electrical theory, wiring and construction. Working with a good experienced electrical contractor would be priceless.
The electrical trade is one of the best out there.
Best of luck to you!

Electrical Tips to Help You Wire it Right

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wires!

The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester that I use to easily Detect Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.

The Quickest Way to Check for Faulty Electrical Wiring!

The Plug-In Outlet Tester
This is the first tool I grab to troubleshoot a problem with outlet circuit wiring. This popular tester is also used by most inspectors to test for power and check the polarity of circuit wiring.
It detects probable improper wiring conditions in standard 110-125 VAC outlets Provides 6 probable wiring conditions that are quick and easy to read for ultimate efficiency Lights indicate if wiring is correct and indicator light chart is included Tests standard 3-wire outlets UL Listed Light indicates if wiring is incorrect Very handy and easy to use.

Strip Off Wire Insulation without Nicking and Damaging the Electric Wire!

The Wire Stripper and Wire Cutter
My absolute favorite wire stripping tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and this is the tool I use to safely strip electrical wires.
This handy tool has multiple uses:
The wire gauges are shown on the side of the tool so you know which slot to use for stripping insulation.
The end of the tool can be used to grip and bend wire which is handy for attaching wire onto the screw terminals of switches and outlets..

The wire stripper will work on both solid and stranded wire. This tool is Very Handy and Easy to Use.
