Scope of Work

Work will consist of helping Journeymen Electricians with the installation, alterations, additions, and/or repairs of electrical systems and equipment.


Assist electricians by performing installation and other tasks under their direct supervision.  Specific responsibilities include:
  1. Understand and follow all safety and work instructions.  Ask questions until you are confident that you understand how to perform the work safely.
  2. Install conduit, wire, and equipment under the supervision of a Journeyman electrician.
  3. Anticipate the needs of the Journeyman electrician and prepare tools and materials to assist in the installation.  A skilled apprentice will often be ready with the proper item before being asked.
  4. Load and unload materials from trucks.  Deliver materials to other electricians.
  5. Maintain cleanliness of worksite and tools.  Work to leave the worksite at least as clean as when we arrived to do the work.
