Electricians usually have a wide range of skills that are necessary for almost every type of construction, both indoors and outdoors. They will install, maintain, and repair electrical power, communications, lighting, and control systems. They might also work with robotics or anything that requires electrical power.
Becoming an electrician requires a high school diploma, as well as a certification which usually requires 2-4 years to obtain. Most electricians learn through an apprenticeship, while some start out at a technical school.
