Vic’s Answer

I believe there is an application process for joining the IBEW, the electrician's union. My brother-in-law is a commercial electrician, and there is a test you will need to take to join the union. You can contact the IBEW any time to get more information about the electrician's union at https://www.ibew.org/Join-the-IBEW#

Aaron’s Answer

Hello Diego,

You would have to join electrician apprenticeship program first, then study the profession. According to your state's licensing board you will need to complete at least 720 hours of electrician instruction from an approved trade school/apprenticeship program that combines hands-on training with classroom instruction. The good thing you typically get to earn while you learn. Becoming an electrician can be very lucrative career choice.

Good luck.
