Electricians, AKA Sparkies have a long and prestigious history. Which included the likes of Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla. Their stories are awe inspiring and their legacies are legendary. Today’s electricians are no different.
In their own way the electricians of today are legends. They ensure our insatiable appetite for electrical power remains uninterrupted. From light switch and outlet wiring to keep our appliances wired and powered, to electrical panel testing and backup systems like generators and batteries (UPS). I could write a book about all the electric services out there and their nuisances. But I’m not going to. I wanted to concentrate on the main services electricians of today do, to keep our homes working and comfortable.

Electricians, as we’ve seen, have a massive skillset. And the modern world simply cannot exist without them.
Being a licensed electrician comes only after intensive training and mastering of the trade. And there’s a very good reason for that. Electricity is dangerous, and only a licensed electrician should handle electrical repairs at home (or anywhere else).
I’ll leave you with this final thought – did you know Master electricians train nearly as long as doctors?
