What Do Electricians Do 

Electricians are highly skilled tradespeople who plan, install, maintain, and replace electrical wiring systems. Electrical wiring can be located in a home, a commercial business, a large piece of machinery or equipment, or even in airplanes, ships, or cable lines.

Because electrical wiring varies depending on what it’s being used for, there’s primarily two different types of electricians – linemen, who work on electric utility company distribution at high voltages and wiremen, who work on lower voltage projects inside of homes and other buildings.

Electrician work is a specialized field and requires specific training. Because working with electricity can be dangerous without the proper skills, we ensure all the technicians at Thunderbolt Electric are highly trained and tested on their knowledge of Georgia Electrical Codes before they wire any homes or businesses. Our technicians also receive ongoing training to stay abreast of industry trends, and attend electrical and technology seminars routinely. We only hire the best technicians and they are all bonded, and insured to work in the State of Georgia.

Residential Electrician Job Description

Our residential electrician technicians are highly trained in installing, repairing, maintaining, and replacing wiring and devices in homes, apartments, and commercial buildings. Our experienced technicians are skilled at reading blueprints and working one-on-one with architects, builders, and contractors to plan the layout of electrical systems. They’re also efficient at reading and following technical diagrams, researching and knowing building codes for specific regions, and inspecting or testing existing wiring and electrical equipment to determine whether a repair or replacement is necessary.

Our technicians have worked in a variety of work environments, including indoors, outdoors, and cramped spaces such as attics or crawl spaces. They are trained and experienced at working on complex projects including residential and commercial planning, wiring repair and installation. Our wiremen are skilled at installing and repairing switches, relays, power outlets, appliances, lighting control devices, HVAC, and many more electrical wiring jobs.

How to Become an Electrician 

Becoming an electrician at Thunderbolt Electric requires extensive training and background checks. Electricians typically undergo a substantial amount of schooling before taking on an apprenticeship that often requires about five years of work experience prior to being able to legally work with a contractor without direct supervision.

Electrician Education

Electricians are required to complete their high school diploma or equivalency degree such as a GED. Most technicians go on to a trade, vocational or technical school to study various specialized electrical trades such as residential, commercial, HVAC technology, renewable energy technology, electronic system technician, engineering, and both high- and low-voltage system training. Following trade school, technicians in Georgia are required to complete a considerable apprenticeship of about 8,000 hours or five years, before being able to legally work without direct supervision.
