Kei’s Answer

Hi Trent,

The length of time you spend will depend on what course you want to pursue. Most of the course take 4 years while some take longer especially if you want to pursue the medical field.

Some also would like take education even further and take masterals or doctorate.

As long as you put your heart to what you like, the amount of time you spent studying will be worthwhile.

Sheila’s Answer

Hi Trent:

A high school diploma or equivalent is required to become an electrician. Most electricians learn through an apprenticeship, but some start out by attending a technical school. Most states require electricians to be licensed.

Some electricians start out by attending a technical school. Many technical schools offer programs related to circuitry, safety practices, and basic electrical information. Graduates of these programs usually receive credit toward their apprenticeship.

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 technical instruction.

Workers who gained electrical experience in the military or in the construction industry may qualify for a shortened apprenticeship based on their experience and testing. . . . Best of luck to you!
