We flick on the lights, turn on a television set; switch on the computer, hardly ever giving a thought to the miracle of electricity. And yet, electricity is the one thing that has made our lives utterly comfortable. It warms us, cools us, helps us eat and entertain ourselves. And who are the people responsible for this? Electricians.
Electricians install, test, repair & maintain electrical systems. Knowledge of electricity, understanding blueprints & other technical documents, manual dexterity, color vision, good sense of smell, physical stamina are all required for this career. Electricians are the people who wire homes, offices, and factories for electricity. They route and connect electrical wires, install light fixtures and other electrical devices, and install and maintain all the electronic controls used for machines at both home and work. Some focus mainly on maintaining existing electrical systems. Others focus mainly on wiring new construction.
