Becoming A Residential Electrician

Electricians are skilled tradespeople who work on various electrical systems and networks for their clients. They provide a wide range of services such as installing electrical switchboards, repairing electrical malfunctions and checking electrical cable and wiring systems.

If you want to be one of the residential electricians Melbourne residents rely on, you will need to complete a certification course at a trades school. This can normally be completed in a year. After finishing the course, you will need to complete an apprenticeship. During that time, you will receive practical experience with electrical work.

To be a good electrician, you must be a highly technical person who enjoys working with their hands. You should have good problem solving skills and a strong attention to detail, since the job can be dangerous and you must work very carefully. You will also need to comply with the relevant safety regulations.
