An electrician apprentice is an entry-level employee who is training to become an electrician. It’s their job to work alongside a more experienced electrician and to assist them with their work. Through this process, the apprentice will develop the skills that they need to eventually become an electrician themselves. Electrician apprentices assist their supervisors with many different tasks. They may be asked to troubleshoot faulty electrical systems and repair them. They may also need to interpret blueprints and schematics, order replacement parts, and carry out other electrical maintenance duties for a wide variety of clients. Qualifying for this position usually requires some pre-existing knowledge of the electrical trade. Apprentices need to be able to read technical documents and blueprints.
