Should You Hire a Licensed Professional Electrician?

The short answer is: yes, absolutely! But why is certification so important, and what makes a licensed electrician stand out from the rest?

If you’re looking to have electrical work done on your property, whether it’s commercial or residential, you’re putting one of your greatest investments in someone else’s hands. Why wouldn’t you want to be sure that they’re the best hands possible? Shoddy electrical work is a danger to everyone, from the customer to the person performing the job. There are some things you just can’t cut corners with, and your home or business’s electrical system is one of them. Certification is no small matter, requiring time and dedication – the kind of time and dedication you want your electrician to bring to work with them.

What Does it Take to Become a Certified Electrician?

To be employed as a professional electrician in the state of California, you’re going to need a C10 Electrical Contractor License. A general electrician certification requires 8,000 hours, or four years of experience at a journeyman level or higher. This process takes a combination of classroom instruction with hands-on training in the field, requiring a thorough understanding of theoretical concepts as well as the kind of practical knowledge you can only develop on the job.

In addition, you have to pass two exams – a law and business test and an electrical contractor test. These exams cover topics like safety, knowledge of electrical system requirements, installation know-how, and the basics of maintenance and repair.

All of this is to say that you can’t just wander into employment as a professional electrician. It takes real dedication to qualify for your license, with lots of hands-on experience in addition to studying for the exams you’ll have to successfully sit for. Neither can make up for the other, making both essential.

The Phase Electric team is made up entirely of certified professionals with years of experience in the areas of commercial and residential electrical work.
