Apprentices

Our apprenticeship is a registered 4-yr program where you receive classroom and on the job training while being paid. Apprentices may travel to different locations to work on construction sites across the country. After successful completion of the 4 year program, apprentices are prepared to take the exam to become a licensed electrician.

Licensed Electricians

Journeyman/Licensed Electricians work on several different job sites throughout the country having apprentices stage their workplace and learn under them. After a few years of experience, a licensed electrician can apply to have their Master Electricians license. United States Department of Labor Bureau of Statistics reported the average income for an electrician was over $50,000 with the highest 10% making over $90,000 a year.

Master Electricians

Master Electricians are the top of their field in experience and pay. They have the expertise and knowledge to tackle the most complex electrical systems. They travel across the country working on unique jobs. They tend to have higher pay and are more likely selected for management – project foremen, project superintendents, project managers and beyond.

Project Foremen

Being a project foreman is the beginning of leadership on a construction site. With years of experience, Project Foremans organize and lead a group of workers toward a common goal. 

Project Superintendents

Project Superintendents supervise the entire construction site ensuring quality and safety standards are met as well as deadlines are kept.

Project Managers

Project Managers work both at job sites and in an office – guaranteeing the clients satisfaction and supplies are ready for the crew.

BEYOND

Amteck prides itself on the ability to train and advance people within the company. Becoming an electrician is only the start of a brilliant career in construction.
