AJ’s Answer

There is math involved but it is quite basic high school level. However, one should not be complacent that because it is simple and therefore not important or rely on electronic tools. You must be absolutely proficient in basic math because electrician need to know current, and voltage load relationship. That's where you will plan and know what can or cannot be wired up.

Umesh’s Answer

A basic high school physics knowledge is very useful for becoming an electrician.

Today, an electrician has tools that measure and calculate everything that you need.
It would be good to understand the basics of electrical circuits and the dangers associated with high currents and voltages.
Any good accredited electrical technician school will teach you these skills.

If you are really good at it, there is nothing stopping you from becoming an electrical enginner.
There are many affordable state engineer schools in California that offer scholarships and loans to complete an engineering degree.
