Qualifying For An Electrician Journeyman License During Your Apprenticeship

To become a journeyman electrician, you must have completed the required classroom hours and demonstrated your ability to work on electrical systems under the supervision of an approved journeyman electrical contractor. You may also need to pass an exam based on the National Electrical Code (NEC), electrical theory, and local electrical codes at the end of your apprenticeship.

Your journeyman phase begins when you successfully complete your apprenticeship and are granted a journeyman electrician license through the jurisdiction’s licensing board. During this time, you will be able to gain valuable experience working as an independent electrician as you work to meet the requirements for obtaining your master electrician license.

Becoming a journeyman electrician signifies an exciting milestone in your career, marking the completion of a long educational and training journey from electrical apprentice to licensed journeyman electrician. Whether you are looking to enhance your skills or prepare for new opportunities in the field, becoming a journeyman electrician could be just what you’re looking for!
