What is a Journeyman Electrician?

When you need a light fixture installed, or your fuse box updated, or new wiring ran, you know you need to call an electrician. Many of these jobs require a skilled and trained electrician as they are too risky to perform yourself. However, do you know what type of electrician you need? Do you know there are different types of electricians? Electricians have many different levels of certifications that qualify them for the job.

Journeyman Electricians 

Journeymen electricians are licensed electricians who have:

  • Completed a training course
  • Worked as an apprentice with a licensed electrician for several years
  • And successfully completed a licensing exam
