What Does an Electrician Do?

Electricians are skilled tradespeople with specialized electrical knowledge and skillset. Working in this trade requires both strong physical labor and intelligent problem solving, and electricians work daily to solve complex issues that require critical thinking and expertise. 

What is the Demand for Electricians?

As the American power grid expands, the country’s demand for skilled electrical technicians is outpacing current supply. Hand tools maker Klein Tools and consulting firm The Accelerate Group recently released a research report detailing severe shortages in the U.S. electrical workforce gap in the near- and long-term. According to the “Dark by 2050” report, in order to meet the need of our growing power infrastructure, the U.S. must train between 107,000 and 224,000 new electrician and line worker apprentices between now and 2030.
