The Electrical Technology program will prepare students for work in new construction, remodeling and other electrical fields.
Course offerings are intended to promote career pathways to those wanting to enter the industry and which cover electrical theory, construction and electrical safety, trade tools and materials, and exposure to the National Electrical Code (NEC) and its use. Students will explore the NEC Code as it applies to different installations.
Successful completion of the Electrical TRACK Pre-Apprenticeship program can lead to entry into the IBEW or IEC Electrical Apprenticeship programs. Superior academic performance on their entrance exams could lead to credit toward a portion of the 1st year of these apprenticeship programs.
Another pathway is through national industry certification with NCCER (National Center for Construction Education and Research) standardized curriculum and hands-on skills performance testing. NCCER keeps a national registry on skills and curriculum earned by students.
