What you should know about electrical apprenticeships

Figuring out what’s next for you after graduation is exciting but can be very overwhelming, especially if you aren’t sure you want to pursue a college degree. While college can be an excellent path for some, an apprenticeship can jump start your career and help you earn while you learn. At Price Electric, we offer an electrical apprenticeship that can provide you with endless opportunities to grow as a craft professional.

What is an electrical apprenticeship?

An electrical apprenticeship is a long term training that lasts about 4 to 5 years, allowing you the opportunity to train with master craftsmen and women to master your craft. It is a great way to get hands-on experience. To round out your on the job training, you attend classes throughout the year to provide additional training and help prepare you to take your Journeyworker’s exam.

Do I get paid during the apprenticeship?

At Price Electric, you receive full-time pay and benefits, so you earn while you learn. As an apprentice, you get paid on a progressive wage scale based on your performance.

What opportunities are available to me after my apprenticeship is complete?

Once you complete your apprenticeship, you can become a licensed electrician and go on to become a foreman, superintendent, or pursue a career in the office as a project manager, estimator, or senior manager. The opportunities are endless!

Why choose this career path over going to college?

Our communities are always going to need skilled trade professionals, and the demand continues to grow. There is already a shortage of workers, but by 2031 over 40% of the current construction workforce will be retired. What does this mean for you? By beginning an apprenticeship out of high school, you can position yourself to be in a strong leadership position by the time baby boomers retire and earn a salary of $50,000 to $70,00 after completing your apprenticeship!

There are many opportunities for anyone who decides to pursue a career in the skilled trades. From little to no student debt, high-income potential to the ability to work with your hands each day, a career in the electrical industry could be your pathway to success.
