Inside Wireman’s job is to distribute and connect the
customer’s electrical equipment to the power source provided
by the Power Company. He or she installs and maintains the various
types of electrical systems found in commercial and industrial
facilities. This equipment varies from lighting and receptacles,
to motors, heating equipment on to systems that control the
energy usage of a facility.
He or she installs conduit systems that contain wire
from motor control centers or panel boards to all of the facilities
equipment that uses electricity. These conduits may contain
power cables or control cables. Many of the conduit systems
are exposed and must be installed to exacting standards in a
neat and workmanlike manner.
The Inside Wireman’s
work varies; one day we are installing Fire Alarm or Security
systems in a multi-story building and the next day installing
conduit in a ditch on the outside of the building. Inside Wireman
also install electrical systems in industrial facilities such
as chemical plants, power plants, chip manufacturing facilities
and automobile plants. Each type of installation has specific
electrical needs and systems to support those needs. While there
are many tasks associated with the Inside Wireman classification,
the apprenticeship training provides all of the knowledge necessary
for an individual to perform these tasks in a professional manner
while helping the individual sharpen his or her skills and abilities
to be the best workers in the electrical construction and maintenance
