Job Description

Electricians are tradespeople that perform tasks related to the installation, maintenance, and repair of electrical equipment and systems. For example, these electrical systems can be found in homes, commercial structures, machines, industrial equipment and so on. Electricians are often independent contractors that work in a range of different environments, such as residential, commercial, or industrial settings. However, they can also specialise in specific types of electrical work or serve specific sectors/target markets.

Education and Qualifications

To become an electrician, it is essential that you complete an apprenticeship in the field. The typical duration of a plumbing apprenticeship is 4 years. However, this may vary depending on the state/territory you wish to work in.

In addition to this, you may also complete electrical trades courses in TAFE or other approved tertiary education provider.

Before you start practicing as an electrician, it is mandatory that you acquire a licence to do so. Each state and territory will recognise different licences, and the requirements of these licences may vary amongst the states and territories. For this reason, it is vital that you ensure you meet the requirements and are eligible to hold a licence in the location you want to work in.
