Journey-level manufacturing plant electricians are required to get a state license by taking an exam from the Oregon Building Codes Division.

The work is done primarily indoors, but often requires climbing, working on ladders, and operating mechanical lifts. Hazards include electrical shocks and burns. 

Minimum Qualifications
Apprenticeship applicants must be at least 18 years of age. In addition, they must provide proof of high school graduation or general education development (GED) equivalent, and complete at least one year of high school algebra or the equivalent post high school algebra course with a passing grade of ´C´. Local apprenticeship committees may require additional qualifications. 
 
These programs are only open to employees of training agents already registered with the local apprenticeship committees. Requirements vary among programs.
