Looking for an Electrical Apprentice Training Program? Start Here!

Being an electrical apprentice means that you are in the early stages of your career in the electrical industry. Not only will you learn about various aspects of the electrical trade during your apprenticeship — including electrical systems, circuits, wiring, safety protocols, and the National Electrical Code (NEC) — but you’ll also receive hands-on training and instruction from experienced electricians or electrical contractors.  

As an electrical apprentice, much of your education will occur while working on real electrical projects. You'll assist in installing, repairing, and maintaining electrical systems and equipment under the supervision of a licensed electrician. But in addition to practical experience, you will also need to attend formal classroom training or take courses related to electrical theory, code requirements, and safety practices.
