About Electrical Inspector

February 20th, 2017

Electrical Inspectors are responsible for checking the electrical components in different types of constructions, from residential homes and smaller outhouses to large commercial buildings and factories. As an electrical inspector, you will be required to know how to use a broad range of meters and other devices to carry out inspections of a building's electrical wiring and other components and ensure that they are in order and comply with government standards. In addition to checking wiring and lighting, your responsibilities will also include inspecting generators, motors, different appliances and air-conditioning and heating systems.

To work as an electrical inspector, you must have a thorough knowledge of city building codes and all legalities that pertain to electrical aspects of any construction. You must be physically fit, enjoy working alone and have excellent time management skills. Completing an apprenticeship or getting some experience will increase your chances of landing a job that pays well.

At your interview for an electrical inspector job, your interviewer will want to check two crucial things - your knowledge about what the job entails and your experience in the field. It 's hard to have a portfolio prepared for this job, but you can boost your chances of getting a job by making sure you get a referral from your previous employer. If you do not have any work experience, make sure you get a testimonial or referral from the supervisor under whom you did your apprenticeship.
