About the electrician courses

ABC Japan offers various courses for professionals that would like to obtain the Japanese Electrician License. 

To work as an electrician in Japan, the professional must have a certified license. This license can only be obtained through the Dai 2 Shu Denki Koujishi test. At ABC Japan, the intensive course was designed to allow the students to learn from the comfort of their homes, with the support from ABC Japan’s coursework and assistance.

The course prepares the students to become full-fledged electricians. From basic electric installation knowledge to technical vocabulary for daily professional work, ABC Japan’s course provides qualification for both license examination and professional routine.

If you’re willing to start your career as an electrician, ABC Japan also offers an intensive course for beginners.
