Dear Trent, It's of a great privileged to bring my insight into limelight through your question.

These are the basics things you should know : it if a needed demand of going to hand work or vocation which you are about to do so or you might have done so , because it a NICE thought for you thinking and going for this kind of a field (Electrician) , so I would like you to know if you're pursuing this and you'll like to know about some Educational need about these check this --"A high school diploma or equivalent is required to become an electrician. Most electricians learn their trade in a 4- or 5-year apprenticeship program. For each year of the program, apprentices typically receive 2,000 hours of paid on-the-job training as well as some classroom instruction."

However, I'll like to share with you so reasonable fact about this too permit me to ask you few questions.

Q1. Is this what you really want ?
Q2. Are you really going to work for your qualification.
Such as:

Be at least 18 years of age

Have a high school diploma or GED

Be in good physical condition

Have reliable transportation to school and job sites

Able to work independently and in a group

Able to follow instructions.

" In order to even start on your journey to becoming an electrician, you need to be sure that you’re qualified for the job."

I wish you good luck on your journey.

Nicole’s Answer

Hi Trent. Great question and kudos to you for seeking a profession in the trades. Skilled tradespeople are now and will continue to be in HUGE demand over the next several decades. A great way to start is to talk with your local trade union office and find out how to get into an internship, allowing you to learn the trade directly with skilled professionals and trainers. You can also talk to the local junior college in your area to inquire if they have any vocational training programs that they either run themselves or can refer you to. Make sure to thoroughly reference any vocational program you pursue, weighing the benefits of the program against the costs. Ideally, a blend of hands on internship and more formalized vocational education will give you the greatest chance for success. Don't be afraid to ask questions of anyone who can lead you in the right direction.

Nicole recommends the following next steps:

Research and find the local Electricians' union office and contact them to see if you can meet with them directly. Be prepared with all of the questions you would like to ask them.
