Employment Opportunities

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics employment of electricians should increase 12 percent between 2008 and 2018, about as fast as the average for all occupations. As the population grows, electricians will be needed to wire new homes, restaurants, schools and other structures that will be built to accommodate the growing population. In addition, older buildings will require improvements to their electrical systems to meet modern codes and accommodate higher electricity consumption due to the greater use of electronic equipment in houses and workplaces.

Career Path Notes

Students have the option of starting work in the electrical industry and continuing their education through the Apprenticeship programs.
