Construction Electrician

Trade Description:

A construction electrician plans, assembles, installs, repairs, tests and maintains electrical fixtures and systems that provide heat, light, power or control in residential, commercial and industrial buildings.

Construction electricians ensure that the electrical apparatus and systems people at home and in business depend on every day are safe and operate properly. Electricians also troubleshoot and repair or reinstall electrical systems when required. They must have the experience to safely remove electrical services and systems as well as assess the suitability of existing services for future use. Many electricians specialize in specific types of installations such as new home construction or in the commercial and industrial sectors in hospitals or factories.
