LMS Professions: Electrical Fitter


Today, no industrial or civil facility can fully function without electricity. The electrical system is one of the most important engineering systems of the building. The safety of operation, fire safety and comfortable operation of the building depend on how correctly and reliably it works.

An electrician (electrical fitter) is a specialist who is engaged in the installation, adjustment and repair of electrical systems and equipment. In most cases, an electrician is a construction profession, and the responsibilities include electrification of an object under construction. Also, specialists can work at an existing facility constantly, servicing electrical networks, or they are called to carry out repair work.

Electricians (electrical fitters) are engaged in the installation of electrical equipment (transformers, electric motors), conduct or lay overhead and underground cable lines.

What do electricians do?

The duties of an electrician include:

  • Preparation of tools, consumables and auxiliary equipment for electrical installation works
  • Installation, connection and adjustment of electrical equipment and systems in accordance with design drawings
  • Repair work, replacement of components and elements
  • Compliance with electrical safety and workplace safety
  • Control, adjustment of the correct operation of electrical appliances
  • Diagnostics and troubleshooting of electrical equipment

To work as an electrician, you need to get a specialized education in a secondary special educational institution and an electrical safety permit. Graduates of educational institutions are assigned the first grades. Then specialists gain practical experience and improve their qualifications, which gives them the right to receive higher grades.

The scope of competence of the specialist

The electrician must have knowledge in the field of electrical engineering, electrical equipment and electrical networks, and have to know:

  • Fundamentals of electrical engineering and electrical circuits
  • Methods of installation of electrical equipment and wiring
  • Safety requirements for installation and operation of electrical installations
  • Norms and rules of organization and operation of electric networks
  • Principles of operation of various types of electrical equipment, including switchboards, circuit breakers, relays, control and protection devices
  • Methods of measuring electrical parameters of equipment operation, troubleshooting in electrical networks and equipment
  • Norms and standards governing electrical installation work

The specialist should be able to use locksmith and electrified tools, as well as perform electrical work in difficult conditions (at altitude or underground).

The profession of an electrician is in demand in the labor market, as new buildings are constantly being built that require electrification, and existing electrical networks and equipment need constant maintenance and modernization. This means that highly qualified specialists in the installation of electrical networks and equipment can count on stable work and high wages.
