Electricity

Electricians install and maintain electrical systems that are essential for life in the 21st Century. As the sophistication of these systems has increased, so has the demand for skilled workers with the training and experience to design, install, troubleshoot, and repair these systems. The Electricity program prepares students for electrical careers in residential, commercial, and industrial settings. Students begin with the basics of residential wiring and over their four years in the program acquire skills in more advanced electrical work including photovoltaic (solar) wiring, programmable logic controls, burglar and fire alarm wiring, and network wiring. Further education after high school, or entry right into the work force, are both viable options for our students after completion of the Electricity program.
