Apprentice Electricians are workers enrolled or soon to be enrolled in an apprenticeship program with the purpose of becoming certified Journeyman electricians. Apprentices typically receive 8,000 on-the-job training hours, classroom instruction and wages that increase as they gain experience. Their duties include completing tasks as assigned by their supervisors, learning the electrical trade on the job and in a classroom setting, and taking on additional job-related responsibilities and tasks as they progress.
Some of the key skills learned throughout an apprenticeship program include:
- Reading and interpreting blueprints and mechanical drawings
- Installing and maintaining electrical equipment and power supplies
- Knowing and following all electrical codes and regulations
- Gaining and demonstrating a thorough understanding of fire alarm systems
- Proper use of the correct PPE for the job
After an apprentice completes his or her training, which takes about four years, they can be advanced to the role of Journeyman.
Journeyman Electricians are certified electricians having completed all of the on-the-job and classroom training requirements and have obtained their Journeyman license from the Colorado Electrical Board. Journeymen must be experienced in electrical installs and reading construction blueprints, possess supervisory skills and have a reasonable level of knowledge of the electrical code. A journeyman often takes on the role of supervising and coaching junior apprentice electricians. A few other responsibilities include:
- Replacement of outdated electrical systems
- Installation and testing of electrical appliances
- Installation of electrical components within walls, ceilings and floors
After around two years and 4,000 additional hours gaining experience and knowledge as a journeyman, an electrician can opt to take their Master’s exam.
Becoming a Master Electrician requires a demonstrably advanced understanding of the full range of electrical concepts. This is obtained through extensive education and experience in advanced electrical work and includes aspects such as: Creating electrical blueprints and building plans Pulling permits & ensuring code compliance Interfacing with project owners, suppliers, architects and other subcontractors Project management Master electricians have proven that they can understand and follow strict building codes, solve complex electrical problems and manage a staff of junior electricians.
