Oklahoma, the “Sooner State”, has the 28th largest population in the United States and has been categorized as one of the most business friendly states in the nation, with the seventh lowest tax burden. The state is the third largest producer of natural gas and has the second largest number of drilling rigs. Those types of operations require power – and the people who know how to work with it.
In other words, Oklahoma demands electricians.
Electricity gets to those Oklahoma rigs and businesses (and, of course, homes) by traveling through wires from a power plant to devices called transformers. Transformers increase the voltage so the electrical current can travel long distances. From there it is sent to substations that lower the voltage for transport on smaller power lines. The voltage is again reduced at smaller transformers sitting at the top of poles. Those poles are located at the places where the power is actually used. That power is then used to light homes, operate machinery, and make the lives of Oklahoma citizens better.
This complex process requires the service of many highly skilled men and women who know how to work with it and put it into practical use for the people of Oklahoma. Those people are called electricians, and they are fortunate to be in a high demand industry that pays well and provides a high level of personal satisfaction.
If you would like to join them, you need training and hands on experience. You need an Oklahoma electrician apprenticeship, and the place to get that is Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC).
