Career Opportunities

The outlook for careers in the electrical field is very good and has been for a number of years. The average electrician is in their late 50's and has or will soon be retiring. The lack of skilled electrical workers to replace them has caused a severe shortage in the marketplace.

  • Utility Lineman
  • Electrical Designer (Engineering)

Typical Starting Salaries

A typical starting salary can be between $12.00 to $27.00 per hour depending on which area the student enters (residential, commercial, industrial) their level of job experience, and the area of the country where they work.

Average starting salary for the immediate area is $15.00-18.00 per hour. Salaries are significantly higher in the larger metropolitan areas like Kansas City, Wichita and Tulsa.
