You can become a certified electrician by taking admission to a technical/vocational training course in the electrician trade. Check out the official Government website of the Directorate of Vocational and Educational Training (DVET) or that of the Directorate of Training and Technical Education, or something similar to these, of the State where you are based. These websites are where you can quickly check out institutes that offer training for the electrician trade in your State. There will be a list of Govt. aided/unaided ones, and those that are private as well. You just need to pass Class 10 from a recognized Board to be eligible for a certification course.

Basically, you can do the certification course in a polytechnic or an Industrial Training Institute (ITI). Ideally, ensure that the institute where you pursue the course [sometimes offered under the Craftsmen Training Scheme (CTS)] is affiliated with the National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT), so that, on successful completion of the course, you will get a National Trade Certificate (NTC) that is recognized not only in India but in other countries as well. You can enroll for a short-term certificate course of a few years, or a full-time vocational certificate course of two years.

You need to also check out the learning modules of the course that you enroll in, that is, what exactly will you learn? Will you get hands-on training properly? A course that teaches you not just basic wiring installations, maintenance, and repairs in residential and commercial buildings, but also the various types of electrical measuring instruments, setting up fuse boxes and meters, etc is one that you should join. Most important is to actually be able to work on circuits, transformers, electrical equipment, accessories, and the like, and not just stand around observing the teacher! That is the right way to get proper skills so that by the end of the course you have the expertise to work independently as an electrician, whether it is as a freelancer, or as an employee in a hotel, shopping complex, private residential complex, a corporate office, etc.

Going ahead on the career path, it is advisable to pass Class 12, so that you can get admission to a diploma course in the same field or join an apprenticeship program that would add the National Apprenticeship Certificate (NAC) to your C.V. and thus give you even better earning opportunities.

I don't have personal experiences, but I can provide information on the criteria to become a certified electrician. You must finish a mix of coursework, training, and on-the-job experience to become a qualified electrician.

A high school diploma or its equivalent is required to be eligible for electrician training programmes. Programmes for training electricians are widely available at community colleges, trade schools, and vocational schools. The courses often combine classroom learning with practical exposure to electrical apparatus and systems. Depending on the level of certification you want, these programmes might last anywhere from six months to four years. You might need to undergo an apprenticeship under the supervision of a licenced electrician after completing an electrical training programme.

Apprenticeships normally last four to five years and include both classroom and on-the-job training. Most states require licences for electricians. State-by-state variations in the licencing requirements generally entail passing a written test and satisfying requirements for education and work experience. Although it is not necessary, certification might show that you are an expert and a professional electrician. The National Electrical Code (NEC) certification is the most well-known credential for electricians in the US.

You can become a certified electrician by taking admission to ITI in the electric trade. There are both types of ITIs Government and private. You can take admission to any ITI as per your need and situation.

Generally, the admission process in ITIs starts in May and classes start in July. So, c contact the nearby ITI and complete the formalities to get admission.

The eligibility for electric trade in ITI is only the high school. So, after completion of your high school examination, you can take admission to any ITI and complete your course.

I will suggest you should work with a good electrician of your village to develop the skill.
