Anthony’s Answer

Hello Mark,
Looking at your tags, there is "electrician", "electronic","electrical","electrical engineer". These are all different subject. And an electrician is not the same as an electrical engineer.
Generally speaking, an electrician dealing with installing, inspecting, repairing electrical wires and fixture for residential or industrial. The difficulty of become one depending on how each state's requirement and licensing. Is the electrician licensed and qualified to install low voltage wires? High voltage? Medical facility? Sensitive equipment etc... know how to design electrical circuit (not a curcuit board) with proper voltage/amp draw or power step up/down. These type of electricians are required to understand the National Electrical Codes (NEC). Electrician also needs to know municiple/juridiction permiting and inspection process. Vocational training or apprenticeship will be sufficient to be licensed (some states may require knowledge tests, number of hours on the job training and continue education.) It would be best to check with your state for the requirements. I would not over simplify and say it is easy to become one since the NEC is not the easy document to interprete and an electrician is subject to state licensing requirement.

I hope that help.
Anthony

See here about this profession and how to get there:
https://www.bls.gov/ooh/construction-and-extraction/electricians.htm#:~:text=installing%20an%20outlet.-,Electricians%20install%2C%20maintain%2C%20and%20repair%20electrical%20power%2C%20communications%2C,homes%2C%20businesses%2C%20and%20factories.

I am not an electrician but I do some electrical work. I would say it is not difficult to become an electrician.
You need to be handy with tools, understand technical drawings, be logical, be rigorous and disciplined (otherwise it is dangerous), and ethical (don't cut corners to do things on the cheap and endanger others).
Robots are not going to replace electricians, in fact, they need them!
The world is going to electrify in order to combat global warming, and the US is quite late on that front, so there will be A LOT of useful work to do in the near future!

Jennifer’s Answer

Not too hard, but it does take dedication to learn on the job, and in school. Stay on top of math and physics. The trade school or college program you go to will focus heavily on both of those topics, as well as the science of electricity. Brush up on electrical terminology for a head start, and see if any company's near to you offer internships or entry-level work that will pay for you to become certified.

Luciano’s Answer

Hello Mark,
You mean the electrical engineering career?
Or study the area of ​​electricity?
If so, I won't say it's easy no!
I'm an electrical engineer and I know how difficult the course curriculum, the theoretical subjects and the understanding of the practical application were.
But it's this understanding that makes the magic of you becoming someone who can think differently, create something, look at a problem differently.
If you like that, difficulty turns into a challenge and a pleasure to solve problems and create new things.
There is no easy career!
But there is pleasure in doing something you like and feel good about!
