Being an electrician is a physical job. Electricians may work in conditions that are extremely hot, cold, dirty, wet or cramped. They have to take safety precautions while working and must test their work properly to insure their safety and the safety of those around them. It also provides essential information for success in upgrading and obtaining skills and knowledge necessary for the state exam. The program includes classroom lecture, controlled lab experience and hands on training in the field.
