Demand for Electricians

Demand for Electricians

Sunday, October 16th, 2011

There is always a high demand for electricians. The US Bureau of Labour Statistics predicts that electrician jobs will grow by approximately 10% per year over the next few years. This means that the demand for electricians will continue in the future.

Electricians do more than just keep the lights working in our homes and businesses. They keep the electricity running and connected correctly so that our televisions, appliances such as the refrigerator and the dish washer, our computers and alarms, the thermostat that controls the temperatures in our homes and offices can keep on working.

A university education can take at least 3 years and set you back thousands of pounds, usually in loans, all the while, not earning anything until the end of the course. Although a degree isn’t always necessary for a job to make a decent living these days, it is needed for specific jobs such as a computer programmer, a nurse or doctor, or a lawyer. But for those who do not like the idea of further education, a job as an electrician is an attractive road to go down.

Becoming an electrician doesn’t require you to be sitting in a classroom whilst paying more than you can afford in hopes of finding a job in the future that will help you to pay both your bills and the debt that your degree has caused. Instead, those who want to become electricians have the option to take apprenticeship courses whilst working, or to do a course at the local college or trade school. By becoming an electrical apprentice, you will start earning money as you learn. The courses at the local colleges enable you to learn and understand things such as electrical theory and maths that you might need to do your job, all the while, working on the days you are not in the classroom.

Those considering a career as an electrician can be assured that there are jobs available and will be so in the future. Apprenticeships that enable you to earn while you learn both in the classroom and out in the field, bypassing the debts that normal university students usually fall into, makes a career as an electrician even more attractive and a better option.
