Electrical Estimator Jobs

Overview of Electrical Estimator Jobs

The career of an electrical estimator falls within the broader category of cost estimators. This more specialized position focuses on collecting data and making appropriate analyses to project the time, financing and labor required for completion of the electrical portion of a given project. These considerations factor greatly into planning a project, bidding for a job and managing a production site.

Work areas range from construction sites to manufacturing settings, and the prospective electrical estimator can expect to balance work time between an office environment and actual job settings, excellent for the individual who enjoys variety in the workplace. Electrical cost estimation is well suited to those who are organized and who enjoy working with numbers and details.

Electrical Estimator Education

In most cases, an electrical estimator job will require at least a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. However, certification programs in cost estimating are available at some post-secondary institutions, and associate degrees in electrical technology provide additional options to prepare for the profession. In some cases, an employer will consider a candidate for an electrical estimator position based on experience without requiring a degree in the field. A construction management degree may also serve as preparation for electrical estimating. An electrician interested in transitioning to a career in electrical estimation may also be able to find resources offered through local union apprenticeship and continuing education programs.
