Texas Electrical License

How to Get the Education and Experience You Need to Become a Licensed Electrician in the State of Texas

Deciding to become a Texas electrician is a great career move. The electrical industry is growing faster than the national average, and in certain booming locations, the demand far outweights the supply of available qualified electricians.

So how do you go about getting a Texas electrical license so you can practice this trade in Texas?

The first and most important step is to become an electrician’s apprentice. Like all states, Texas has a set of particular rules regarding what you have to do to become a licensed electrician, including a minimum number of supervised apprentice hours worked under a master electrician.

Luckily, Independent Electrical Contractors makes this easy. At a Texas IEC training center, you will not only receive classroom instruction from world class instructors, you will also receive hands-on training in the field as an electrical apprentice. And you get paid to do it!

The demand for qualified Texas electricians will continue to grow. Your career will begin as an apprentice, but from there you can advance all the way up to master electrican or owner of your own company. It all starts with training at IEC to get your Texas electrical license.
