Electricians work in a wide variety of buildings and facilities. Since electricity is used for a variety of purposes including climate control, security, and communications, Electricians need to be proficient in many applications of electricity. There are three main settings in which Electricians typically work; Construction, Industrial and Institutional. Electricians have many different responsibilities and tasks that they must carry out in their daily work. They assemble, install, alter, test, and maintain electrical systems designed to provide heat, light, power, control, signal, and fire alarms for all types of buildings and premises.
