The work of an electrician requires years of practice and being updated with the latest technology and certificates to enable the contractors install the electrical systems in place. An uncertified electrician is not eligible to handle a contract work and since it is essential that professionals as well as the clients consider it seriously. There are three broad categories in which the work of the electricians can be classified:
– Line work
– Interior work and
– Integrated building work
Each job requires certain unique set of skills and specific training to perform the task effectively.
Line contractors: These contractors are solely responsible for planning, constructing and maintaining the power transmission and distribution. The electricity to our homes is delivered from the substations. The high voltage electricity received by the substation is split down into low voltages and then distributed to consumers. All such work requires the involvement of experts and can not be done without an adequate infrastructure and a proper plan. It is very dangerous to work with high voltages and if we appoint unskilled professionals for the job then disaster would be unavoidable. People involved in the line contractor jobs have to go through an intensive training session to get acquainted with the electrical systems. They also learn to work in various environments like substations, houses and distribution centers.
Interior Electricians: In contrast to the line contractors who work on larger range, the inside contractors deal with smaller environments. The work of these contractors is equally important as these electricians are responsible for laying the wiring in commercial or residential buildings. They are also trained to maintain and design the cabling layout and install the required systems. Any problem in the wiring system like short circuit is solved by these professionals in no time.
Integrated building systems: The integrated building system contractors are the last on the list. They are technicians who have immense knowledge in the field of telecommunications, wireless networking and security systems. They have an expertise in designing and installing the lighting system, telecommunication, security system, wireless network and the likes. The core job of such an electrical contractor is to make sure that the building's power consumption is as less as possible and all the electrical systems are functioning properly. With the 'go green' slogan becoming the trend, the demand for these contractors is on the rise. Every individual is looking for ways to cut short the electricity bill in any way possible.
