Electrician Jacksonville Florida
Electricians are trained to one of three different levels. Apprentice Electrician, Journeyman Electrician and finally Master Electrician. Apprentices in the United States are just starting to learn the electrical trade. They generally take several hundred hours of classroom instruction all the way up to 8000 hours to follow apprenticeship standards for a period of between three to six years, during which time they are paid as a percentage of the Journeyman’s pay. Journeymen are electricians who have completed their Apprenticeship and who have passed a local, State, or National licensing exam and found to be competent in the electrical trade. Master Electricians have performed well in the trade for a period of time, often six to twelve years, and have passed an exam to demonstrate superior knowledge of the National Electrical Code, or NEC.
Service electricians are trained to respond to requests for repairs and upgrades. They have considerable skills troubleshooting wiring problems, installing wiring and making repairs. Construction electricians mostly focus on larger projects, such as installing an all new electrical system for a entire building, upgrading an entire floor, or remodeling.
