I sometimes get calls asking me how do you become an electrician.You first have to work as a helper or if in a union an apprentice .There are a certain number of hours which equals to 5 years of working 40 hours a week.This number sometimes changes so you should check with the state licence board.I think you can learn the trade in about two years but can not take the test until you have your hours.A master electrician has to sign off on your hours so if you leave one job and go to another make sure you get your hours.It would be good idea to take a class to learn how to take the test because the cost is 50.00 dollars for each time you take the test and the employer will not usually pay for this.You can also take a two year class through the Associated builders and contractors.That is what i did and found it useful in learning the trade.If you are a good electrician you can usually find a job anywhere in the state and get paid well.The average electricians can get paid between 30,000 and 40,000 a year not great but not bad either.Thanks for looking at my blog and check past post for more helpful tips.

Today i would like to talk about hooking up a stove plug .New stoves come with a fourth wire that is the neutral wire this is usually for the light or the igniter .If you do not have a neutral wire you can tie it with the ground on either the stove plug or the wall plug which ever is easier.I hope this helps you out and thanks for looking at my blog and check past post for other helpful tips.John
