Would you like to become a licensed electrician?


Journeyman electricians install and repair wiring and electrical systems in residences, factories and businesses. They inspect the wiring, circuit breakers and transformers and need to be familiar with building code regulations to ensure that all of the electrical work done on a project is up to code. They also need to know how to read blueprints so that they can ensure that systems are installed correctly and that they’re in the right place.

According to the MA State Board of Electrical Examiners, before you take the Journeyman licensing exam you must complete 8000 hours of employment (approximately 4 years) as an apprentice under the direct supervision of a holder of a MA Journeyman’s license and 600 hours of classroom instruction (Modules 1 – 8) in electrical code and theory from an approved school based on the current National Electrical Code. Apprentices will not be given credit for work experience completed 6 years prior to the successful completion date of their Board approved education.

You may start working as an electrical apprentice first, or you may start classes first, or do both concurrently.
