Electrical

Electricians read blueprints to install electrical systems in factories, office buildings, homes and other structures. They may also install coaxial cable for television or fiber optic cable for computers and telecommunications equipment. Electricians who work as commercial electricians may install or repair motors, transformers, generators or electronic controllers on machine tools and industrial robots.

HVAC

The HVAC trade sometimes requires electrical, plumbing, carpentry, welding and some insulation/sheet metal work. HVAC technicians are able to install, maintain, diagnose and correct problems in heating and cooling systems. This involves tasks working with many mechanical, electrical and electronic components. Technicians are REQUIRED to continue formal training to be current in advanced HVAC technology.
