Becoming an electrician can be a wonderful way to earn a living. Electricians are needed all over the country. They do different jobs and duties. Everything in your apartment runs on electricity and that means that an electrician can make your life much easier. Some of the duties of an electrician include testing devices, problem shooting complications, and working with electrical equipment. Electricians can diagnose circuit breakers, electrical components, transformers, and circuitry. Becoming an electrician doesn’t require a four-year degree. It is a skilled trade just like plumbing, mechanics, and Heating & Air Conditioning work. When I was in high school, I was unsure what I wanted to do with my life. I knew that college wasn’t in my future. I did not see myself spending another 4 years in university going to classes every single day. I was ecstatic to get out of high school and I did not want to go back. However, I did need a job and a way to make money. I did not want to spend the rest of my life working at the grocery store. Our neighbor hired me for a job as an apprentice working at his company. Most of the time I helped out in the shop and I was there to lend a helping hand. That’s how I got to learn so much about the job that an electrician does. After working as an apprentice for 2 and 1/2 years, I managed to take a test to get my own electrician’s license. I passed the first time, thanks to the excellent test preparation that I did online.
