Most of us have a vague idea about what electricians do; they work with electricity, fix electricity, and have something to do with power poles. This is true in a very broad sense. But what exactly does your local electrician do?

Electricians do a wide variety of jobs, and there are many specialties they can engage in. One big job is bringing power to buildings and maintaining that power into homes and businesses. Some electricians specialize in laying cable that is needed for all of our wiring, while other electricians work exclusively with outside power lines that bring power to your home or business.

From here, electricians can specialize even more. For instance, some electricians specialize in new construction projects by installing all of the wiring leading into warehouses, factories, businesses, and homes. Then, there are some electricians who specialize in maintaining this wiring once it has been laid down, and some who specialize in ships or planes. Electricians have a wide variety they can choose from when it comes to career paths.


The US commonly sees electricians classified as either those who work with lower voltage (homes and businesses) known as linemen, or those who work on higher voltage projects known as wiremen. It takes many years to become an electrician. There are three levels of training that one must go through: apprentice, journeyman, and master electrician. Along with hundreds of hours of classroom training, apprentices learn extensively on the job under the expert tutelage of other electricians. Electricians must pass several exams in order to be licensed at each level.

Delta Electrical in Jackson notes that safety is the number one concern of being an electrician as all it takes is one wrong move, and you could be electrocuted. Safety is the reasoning behind the years it takes to be a competent electrician able to work on your own. Electricity is just too dangerous to let a novice mistake kill you or others. Once you are trained, you can work anywhere and in any industry.
