Electrician Technical Literacy Workbook
This workbook is a copy of the words which are included in the Apprentice,
Journeyman, and Master Electrician Technical Literacy Lists plus the Historical Literacy
List. Everyone wants to understand the world we live in. Language is the key to
understanding. Therefore to be the best electrician possible requires a great vocabulary.
This vocabulary is how we process information. We read: words. We listen to instructions:
words. We give instructions: words. Without a clear understanding of the words we read,
hear or speak, then communication isn't accurate.
In any technical occupation there exists a specialized vocabulary. So too for
electricians. Click on to the level of literacy depending on your job level. There you
will find a suggested minimum list of words, terms, abbreviations, symbols, phrases,
material identification, and what-ever-else seems important to that specific skill level.
Note that if you have words which you feel should be on this literacy list, then
please send on an email to me so that they can be added where appropriate. This
Electrician Technical Literacy list is a work in process. Help me make it better. For over
twenty-five years I have used something similar in all the classes which I have taught.
But this work-up for the Electricianeducation.com site is the best I have ever
managed. I hope you like the concept of improving your vocabulary. This collection of
technical literacy is also available in print format if you can not print it out,
What you get are three lists of 1000 words each. If you are an electrical
apprentice, you should know or be working on mastering definitions of the first
1000 words, terms, symbols, and abbreviations. If you are a Journeyman, you
should already know the apprentice list of 1000 and be working on the Journeyman
1000. Then lastly, the Master Electrician should know or be working on learning
definitions for the remaining 1000 words. Definitions are not provided. That is
your job as a student, after all. That's how you will learn these technical
terms. You will need to consult the National Electrical Code, dictionaries, and
fellow electricians who are more experienced than you to obtain these
to see a sample page.
The lists are printed on 8 1/2 x 11 inch three hold punched paper
ready for a three ring binder which is not provided. The price for this workbook is
$15.00 postpaid in the USA.
