Electricians can advance their careers through further education and experience. Apprentices can work towards obtaining their journeyman electrician license, while journeymen can take their skills to the master electrician level. At Buildforce, we exist to help create better careers for you in the construction space.

To become a Journeyman Electrician, you must have completed at least 7,000 hours of on-the-job training supervised by a Texas-licensed Master Electrician. Your supervisor must complete an Experience Verification Form for each hour worked, which should then be included in your license application. Once all 8,000 total hours are complete, you can take the examination.

In the State of Texas, we do sign off on all Apprentice Hours worked with Buildforce.
