Ancient people were aware of electricity. There is some evidence of pottery found 2000 years ago that indicates they knew how to harness it. Even with that knowledge, it wasn’t until the 1920’s that electricity became ubiquitous in American homes. Since nearly all American residences operate with electricity, having an electrician on hand in times of need is an asset.

It’s not often that things go wrong with your electricity, but when they do, it’s good to know you have someone you can count on.

A Professional Approach
To become a master electrician, one must first complete an apprenticeship. Four years in a class room and 2000 hours annually of on the job training. The next level is to become a journeyman. Four thousand hours of work experience, roughly 2 years is required before one can qualify to take the master electrician license exam.
