Employment Outlook

The employment outlook for Electrical Technicians is very bright. At a time when many jobs are being lost to foreign competition and technology, those same conditions are creating many high paying career opportunities for Electrical Technicians. Industrial modernization, new communications technologies, and the growth of new and remodeled housing markets are the driving forces behind this trend.

Also, a general shortage of trained technicians, at a time when demand for their skills is high, works to support a generally high wage and benefit scale in the industry.

Electrical Technicians should enjoy favorable employment opportunities for decades to come.
