The job description for a Licensed Qualified Electrician is to obtain a license and perform electrical work as required by law for maintenance and construction on government property such as office buildings, hospitals, highways, and prisons. A licensed electrician connects wires to switches, controls, connectors, traffic control, lighting fixtures, circuit breakers, switchboards, and appliances. They splice the wires by stripping the insulation from the leads, clamping, twisting, and soldering the leads together, and using hand tools to attach terminal caps. You will repair and replace damaged electrical equipment such as sockets, plugs, motors, tools, switches, and controls using hand tools, test equipment, and manuals. They check the system with test kits for the safety of all components.

Licensed electricians measure, cut, assemble, bend, bond, and install electrical wiring, outlets, connectors, and keypads using specialty tools such as power drills, cutters, benders, and hand tools. They also clean the equipment and record the condition and maintenance of the equipment. They install and repair phones, motors, controllers, lights, and appliances using hand tools and power drills. They inspect and evaluate electrical equipment to ensure it is working safely and properly. They monitor the inventory and determine the material requirements for repair work. They clean and maintain tools and perform maintenance on equipment used for electrical work. Sometimes they can train low-level electrician apprentices. And they also carry out all related work that is assigned to them. Some additional job duties may assign work to other electricians, trade assistants, and apprentice electricians.

Some of the job qualifications for a licensed qualified electrician include knowledge of electronics and electricity, electrical codes, materials, tools, and electrical equipment. You should have knowledge of electrical equipment such as transformers, controllers, starters, switches, switchboards, and motors. You must understand safety standards and practices and the potential hazards associated with electrical work. Must have the ability to use tools, install electrical equipment, repair electrical equipment, diagnose electrical problems and malfunctions, and be able to easily read and understand blueprints, manuals, wiring diagrams, and instructions. A licensed electrician must be able to perform mathematical calculations, be able to work from ladders, hydraulic towers, and scaffolding, and get into tunnels and crawl spaces if necessary. You must also be able to understand and learn new technologies regularly.

Some qualified licensed electricians can work in high-voltage areas from ladders or hydraulic elevators. Some jobs require workers to work in harsh conditions on tall buildings and be exposed to changing weather conditions. Some of these jobs may involve correctional placement and handling inmates. The physical demands are climbing stairs and body movements such as stooping and stooping in a confined space. There are two classifications after the work of a licensed electrician and they are experienced level and advanced level. These two classifications perform similar work, except that the advanced level oversees the work of other electricians.
