Mark’s Answer

I can tell you that the demand is very high for people with technical skills.. I know several electricians that make close to 100k a year that aren’t even master electricians. The best route to this would be to find a vocational school or start a summer job at a company that offers the benefit of sending you to school for free..
I know that’s how I and many of my colleagues have risen to where we are.

Mark recommends the following next steps:

Find a local school that offers electrical training..
See what companies are part of their program
Apply for those said companies unless you are capable of paying tuition
Most are 4 year programs non union, 5 year with the union

https://www.servicetitan.com/licensing/electrician/vermont#:~:text=Specialist%20electricians%20must%20complete%20a,of%20documented%20electrical%20work%20experience. outlines the requirements in Vermont.

https://labor.vermont.gov/workforce-development/apprenticeship has information on how to become an apprentice.

I'm not sure there is much actual training you can do before you finish school but you can certainly learn a lot about the job. I'm sure there are tons of video of how electricity works and doing most electrical jobs around the house.

There are also electrician experiment starter kits you could purchase to play with low voltage DC electricity. This would be more applicable to electronics inside appliances etc.

Residential and commercial electricity is AC 120/240V and could injure people as well as start fires. So you don't want to play around with home wiring and this is why electrician require training as well as licenses.
