Senior Electrician at Fort Knox

Depends on the state and the job. Hard rock mines don’t require a licensed electrician. If you’re looking at residential work go see your local IBEW electrical union. It’s between 4 and 5 year apprenticeship program.

Depending on the experience you have whether you're starting as a new electrician which is an apprentice program usually, but there are also employers who will hire you in and teach you the ropes. If you take this route be sure and keep track of all of your hours as you need I believe depending on state between 4,000 and 6,000 hours to be eligible to take the journeyman's exam. But as I said it depends on each state as my journeyman's card is only good for Clark county in Las Vegas Nevada as their standards for the NEC code is more stringent due to the casinos and case of the MGM catching on fire the standards have really went up there anyway you can also start roping houses which is pretty boring the best bet is to try to get on for the local electricians union as they will put you through their apprentice program while you're getting paid but a lot of employers will also do this and some won't even require you to do the ABC anyway hopefully this was helpful the main thing is to have some pep in your step and be on time and show some initiative initiative while working and take all the drugs that you can possibly take handle LOL

The skills are a wide range of common knowledge. The knowledge is a learned trait. You will need to be familiar with general principles of construction. Applying a variety of NEC rules qnd recommendations. You as an apprentice will train/learn each day for a set of time.
