Electrician's Mate (EM)

Electrician's Mates are responsible for the operation and repair of a ship's or station's electrical power plant and electrical equipment. They also maintain and repair power and lighting circuits, distribution switchboards, generators, motors and other electrical equipment. Electrician's Mates are employed onboard nuclear powered ships to maintain the control subsystems in nuclear reactors.

Electrician's Mates (EMs) are responsible for the operation of a ship's electrical power generation systems, lighting systems, electrical equipment and electrical appliances. The duties include installation, operation, adjustment, routine maintenance, inspection, test and repair of electrical equipment. EM's also perform maintenance and repair of related electronic equipment.

The duties performed by EMs include:

* installing power and lighting circuits;
* repairing distribution circuits;
* running wiring for lights and other equipment;
* maintaining operating efficiency of distribution panels, switches, switchboards, controllers, voltage regulators, current transformers and voltage transformers;
* maintaining operating efficiency of electric motors;
* repairing electrical equipment and appliances;
* installing and maintaining storage batteries;
* inspecting, maintaining, testing and repairing electric power equipment;
* maintenance and repair of shipboard elevator systems;
* interpreting electrical sketches, diagrams and blueprints;
* maintenance and repair of various propulsion and auxiliary control consoles;
* connecting electric power machinery and electric power equipment.

Working Environment

Most work in the EM rating is performed indoors, under varied conditions at sea and ashore. Work may be done in a shop-like environment. EM's do mostly physical work of a technical nature and usually work closely with other ratings. USN EM's are stationed primarily aboard USN deploying ships, Full-Time Support (FTS) EM's are stationed aboard Naval Reserve Force (NRF) ships that deploy or conduct local operations.

Sea/Shore Rotation for This Rating

* First Sea Tour: 60 months
* First Shore Tour: 36 months
* Second Sea Tour: 60 months
* Second Shore Tour: 36 months
* Third Sea Tour: 48 months
* Third Shore Tour: 36 months
* Fourth Sea Tour: 48 months
* Forth Shore Tour: 36 months

Note: Sea tours and shore tours for sailors that have completed four sea tours will be 36 months at sea followed by 36 months ashore until retirement.

This is a sea-intensive community. Manning conditions at sea may require the need to request sea tour extension or shore tour curtailments to ensure all sea duty billets are filled.
