Becoming a Commercial Electrician

Home Improvement,Home Repair
A commercial electrician will install and maintain commercial electrical devices in complexes and commercial buildings. They can also:

• Plan and diagram electrical systems according to the required local electrical codes or work from blue prints
• Installs conduits and runs the electrical wiring. These wires are normally terminated at circuit breaker panels, relays, and switches
• Wire instruments that control the heating units, lighting, and power in buildings
• Provide wiring for refrigeration and air conditioning units
• Use ohmmeters and electrical test meters to ensure the continuity of wiring to ascertain safety of the components and compatibility of the components
• Perform tests during the installation of new electrical systems to make sure it is working properly and there are no system breaks and shorts
• Replacing or repairing the conduits and wiring if needed when there are problems with the electrical system

Becoming a commercial electrician can be considered a step toward becoming an electrical engineer. On average, they can earn over twenty-five dollars an hour but it all depends on where they work.

To become a commercial electrician there are certain requirements you must meet, licenses you must obtain, and educational requirements.


• Able to see and discern colors because most electrical wiring is color-coded
• Must be able to climb ladders along with standing and remaining in uncomfortable positions for a long period of time
• Must be able to lift up to fifty pounds to eye level on a regular basis


It is illegal to do any type of electrical installation without an electrician’s license in most states. You can do your own electrical work as long as you are not renting the home or apartment. Before you get a license, you have to have completed an apprenticeship or have an associate’s degree. With an apprenticeship, you have to pass the state journeyman exam.

Educational requirements

In order to pursue training or apprenticeship to become a commercial electrician you have to have your high school diploma or GED. While in high school, you should take classes in algebra because commercial electricians have to make load calculation for circuits. In some colleges, you can get an apprenticeship associate degree. The training standards that must be met to become a commercial electrician are handled by the National Electrical Code (NEC). This involves mastering over eight hundred sections that are designed with public and personal safety in mind. Most commercial electrician apprenticeship programs require you to work full time with a contractor for four years. Although it varies by state, on average you will need to complete two thousand hours of on-the-job training for each year of the program. Each year you will also have a set number of instruction hours to complete.
