Electrical Installations

Designing and installing electrical systems in all types of commercial, residential, and industrial projects, while carrying out maintenance and repairs safely and quickly.

Why is this skill important?

An electrician works on commercial, residential, agricultural, and industrial projects. There is a direct relationship between the nature and quality of the product required and the payment made by the customer. Therefore, the electrician has a continuing responsibility to work professionally in order to meet the requirements of the customer and thus maintain and grow the business. Electrical installation is closely associated with other parts of the construction industry and with the many products that support it, normally for commercial purposes.

The electrician works internally or in teams, in the homes of customers and on small and major projects. They will plan and design, select and install, commission, test, report, maintain, fault find, and repair systems to a high standard. Work organization and self-management, communication, and interpersonal skills, problem solving, flexibility and a deep body of knowledge are the universal attributes of the outstanding electrician.

With a constant developing technology an electrician will face new challenges where new systems will be needed and new working methods have to be used.

Whether the electrician is working alone or in a team the individual takes on a high level of personal responsibility and autonomy. From working to provide a safe and reliable electrical installation and maintenance service, in accordance with relevant standards, through to diagnosing malfunctions, programming and commissioning home and building automation systems and create documentation, concentration, precision, accuracy, and attention to detail every step in the process matters and mistakes are largely irreversible, costly, and potentially life threatening.

With the international mobility of people, the electrician faces rapidly expanding opportunities and challenges. For the talented electrician there are many commercial and international opportunities; however, these carry with them the need to understand and work with diverse cultures and trends. The diversity of skills associated with electrical installations is therefore likely to expand.

An electrician also has many career opportunities including advancing to leading or managerial positions.
