Question 5 of 16
What do you do to protect yourself from electrical accidents or injuries?
Professional Answers Preview
"I believe that using equipment that's certified and well-built is one of the best ways to protect yourself on the job site. Having a supervisor and colleagues who are interested in the safety of others is also very important. I have heard about people on the job who lose their respect for the power of electricity which can be a very harmful attitude. Keeping that sense of respect is crucial."
While answering this question, it is best to display that you are aware of the importance of safety on the job, rather than simply reciting what you have learned in the classroom setting. If you do not have a personal example, you can use an example that you've heard recently from an industry colleague, or even a news story.

About Electrician Apprentice

May 6th, 2017

Electrician apprentices work as assistants to qualified electricians. Electrician apprentices have the necessary knowledge in this field but they are not qualified or licensed to work as independent electricians. After gaining some experience, most electrician apprentices enroll in an appropriate program, obtain the necessary state license and go on to work as independent electricians.
Anyone wishing to work as an electrician apprentice must be at least 18 years old and have a GED or high school diploma. Most master electricians will ask you to take an aptitude test to assess your on-the-job skills. Critical thinking, troubleshooting, and mechanical skills are basic requirements for the job. Electrician apprentices must also have good color vision.
Your interview for an electrician apprentice job will most likely be conducted by the master electrician who is looking for someone to help them on the job. Check out mock interview questions if you are interested in knowing more about the kind of questions to expect at your electrician apprentice interview.
