The Electrical Trade
The electrical training ALLIANCE’s goal is to provide the Electrical Construction Industry with the most highly trained and skilled workforce possible.

Electrical workers install, maintain and repair electrical power, communications, lighting and control systems in homes, businesses and factories.
Electrical Workers work indoors and outdoors in nearly every type of facility. Almost all electricians work full time, which may include evenings and weekends. Electrical Workers learn their trade through a registered apprenticeship program that is usually cost free to the student. A high-school diploma or equivalent is required to begin your apprenticeship and career in the trade. Most states require electricians to be licensed.
Why Electrical Work?
Employment of electrical workers is projected to grow 14% from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations.
