A Journeyman Electrician is an individual who has obtained the required hours and passed their qualification exam as an apprentice.

Under the supervision of a Master Electrician, a Journeyman Electrician works independently and with engineers, architects, and other electricians across various industries. A Journeyman Electrician ranks above an electrician apprentice and below a Master Electrician.
A Journeyman Electrician is a skilled tradesperson who has at least five years of experience in the industry.

The lead electricians will assign tasks according to what each person does best while also coordinating everyone’s efforts to go smoothly without any mistakes or accidents happening along the way.
