Electricians give us safe access to power, whether it comes from solar panels on our roofs or overhead power lines. They work with a number of tradespeople to complete construction projects from housing to commercial skyscrapers. From installing a simple outlet socket to wiring complex power grids, electricians need to have the skills, including the manual dexterity, safety knowledge, and ability to analyze technical drawings and problem solve, for jobs at any scale.
