Have you ever thought of becoming an Electrician?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for Electricians is growing much faster than average. Employment is expected to grow 14% from 2014 to 2024. The 2016 median pay was $52,720 per year or $25.35 per hour.

Massachusetts State Board of Electrical Examiners requires documentation of earned classroom hours and earned apprentice hours before you are eligible to take the licensing exam. Candidates need to earn 8,000 hours of employment as an apprentice under the direct supervision of a Massachusetts Class B Journeyman. This takes approximately 4 years to complete as only 2,000 hours are approved each year. Also required is 600 hours of classroom instruction based on the current National Electrical Code from an approved school.

Though there is no set order for these two requirements, it is recommended that candidates enroll in classroom instruction while being employed.
