How Long Does it take to Become a Certified Electrician?

Certified electricians are certified to perform electrical-related tasks. It takes at least two years of real-world experience to become certified as an electrician, and many more hours of studying and passing exams.

Some of the steps required to obtain the certification are getting the proper education or training, getting a passing score on the licensing exam and passing a background check.

There are certified electrician applications specific for commercial work, residential work and industrial electrical systems. Certified electricians are usually called upon to do the installation, maintenance, troubleshooting, testing, inspection and repair on industrial and commercial electrical systems.

Certified electricians must know about:

  • Underground and overhead wiring
  • Wire sizing and voltage drop
  • Grounding and bonding
  • Household wiring (NEC)
  • Testing for ground fault, open neutrals, hot wires, continuity of circuits, polarity, the ampacity of conductors and voltage drop

Certified electricians may also have specialties in the following:

  • Building wire (service and feeder wiring)
  • Residential (lighting installation)
  • Commercial/industrial power distribution systems
  • Low voltage (CAT I) wiring
  • Conduit and wire locators
  • Photovoltaic systems (solar electric)
  • Renewable energy systems (wind, hydro, etc.)
  • Telecommunications (CATV Wiring)

Licensed Electrician vs. Certified Electrician

A certified electrician has passed an exam that is certified by the National Electrical Contractors Association. A licensed electrician, however, is someone who has met the requirements for licensing in their state.

Certified electricians are professionals who have received their certification through a reputable institution. This way, you can ensure that certified electricians are qualified to do electrical work in your home or business.

Certified electricians spend years learning all aspects of electrical wiring. They can ensure that everything in an installation is up to code and safe for usage. Licensed electricians may have more experience within one type of electrical work, but certified electricians are professionals who can complete all wiring aspects.

Licensed electricians are not necessarily certified, but they do have a license from the state which allows them to work with electrical wiring and install circuits. Licensed electricians may be certified in one or more types of electrical wiring, such as residential or commercial wiring. Certified electricians can complete a higher level of tasks than general licensed electricians.

A certified electrician is a licensed electrician that has been certified by the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA). A certified electrician will have completed an apprenticeship or journeyman degree. A simple online search will help you find a certified electrician near you.

I will come to them every time. They are friendly, honest, and always on time! Absolutely recommend.

Had these guys and gals help me update my electrical as well as run some power out to a shop. The whole process was super smooth, Kourtnie nailed the paperwork side of things (even got a permit and inspection that I had no idea we needed) and Cory was great to work with on the installation side of things. The price was the same from the original bid all the way to the final product, which is always nice. The work itself was exactly what we agreed upon. Really nothing but good things to say about my whole experience. Would totally recommend these guys to any of my friends!

We are so appreciative of the work that Morgan and his team did on behalf of Custom Electrical for our new home. Custom Electrical provided a thorough, exact, and honest/fair bid right from the start, and they stuck to it! We had a budget, and they respected it. They were always timely and very professional. Attention was paid to every detail, and they made sure things were just how we wanted them. They went above and beyond in so many ways, from being patient with our kids running around to coming back an extra time to make sure everything was just right. We will be recommending them to everyone we know. Thanks you guys!

5 stars and a forever customer! My family moved into an older home and we've had Custom Electric over several times to help get our home working a bit more how I would like it. I appreciate that I am always able to get someone to my home quickly- whether it's to install a light switch or rewire an entire room. Everyone who's been in my home has been professional, friendly, and consistent in their quality work. Maybe most of all, I am grateful for the honest communication and great customer service! After the last visit, I had some concerns that were cleared up right away with kindness and respect (especially for dealing with a not so electrical savvy me). I would send everyone I know and love who have electrical need to Custom Electric- they won't let you down!!

We had a baseboard heater stop working in our baby's room. Custom Electric came out and quickly repaired the problem. Scheduling was easy, the technicians and staff were all very professional and great to work with. When we need electrical work done in the future, we will definitely be working with them again.

These guys/gals are always very helpful. I got a tech out to the house same day I called to repair a GFI receptacle that kept tripping open. Cory (technician) troubleshoot the problem, corrected it and was gone in about 30 minutes. I have used them for other projects with no complaints. I use them without hesitation for any electrical issues.
