How to become an electrician?

If you want to become an electrician, here are the steps to take.

 

Step #1

Get an Apprentice License. Visit the TDLR website below

https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/App_Online/AppPathBegin.asp?apptype=032AN1

  1.  Choose Apprentice Electrician Application

  2. Complete your personal information

  3. Pay $20 and print your confirmation page until your license comes in the mail.

Step #2

Get formal training. Step 2 and 3 should be done together.  Join an electrician apprenticeship program sponsored by the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) or Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC). These programs include both classroom courses and on-the-job training and take about 4 years to complete.

 

Step #3

Get working. Those already with a year or more of training are usually called helpers. Helpers can expect to be assigned to work with one (or more) journeyman electricians on job sites. If starting out as an apprentice, however, these will have to be learned on the job (and in the case of electrician apprenticeship training – a classroom) while working under the close supervision of a journeyman electrician.
