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.

  • 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

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.

All Reviews Schedule Estimate

We were contacted by a very professional lady from Custom Electrical Service to perform a repair to our solar panels. They had been contacted by SunPower that our unit was not producing correctly. We were told told the service was under warranty and would be completed in the next 2 - 3 weeks. An appointment was scheduled and the service people came when they said they would come! The gentlemen (and Ii use the term correctly) were very polite and respectful of our property. They had to replace things (which means there were old parts to dispose of). There was no trace of any debris when they left. Our panels are now working perfectly again!

I have used Custom Electric for several needed repairs. Some of our outlets and switches were not up to code and we needed them replaced. There was a problem with some exterior outlets as well. They were replaced and protected with the appropriate weather covers. All the work we have had Custom Electric perform has been very professional and completed without any further issues. Everyone I have dealt with has been very knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. I would recommend them to anyone needing electrical work. I think their pricing has been very fair as well. I know who I will call or refer when there is a need for electrical work.

Custom Electrical was awesome. We had some issues with our solar panels and turns out the service panel had some issues too. They put in a warranty work order with the manufacturer and took care of the issue right away. I was very impressed with the responsiveness of the company and further impressed by the fact that they were not the original panel installation company, but treated me like a long time customer. This company will be doing all my future electrical work and will be my go to company when asked for a reference by my friends and family. Thank you Custom Electrical!
