Electrical Technology, AAS

The use of electrical technology in residential, commercial and industrial applications continues to grow rapidly. Electricians install and maintain electrical systems for a variety of purposes, including lighting, appliances, industrial control, security and communications. The Electrical Technology program emphasizes hands-on training integrated with a knowledge of theory and study of the National Electrical Code.

The certificate in Electrical Technology is designed to give students the basic skills to gain entry level employment in the residential and commercial electrical trade. As a requirement for completion, students will sit for their local licensure exam.

After attainment of the certificate, students can complete advanced studies towards the Electrical Technology Associate of Applied Science. This program prepares students to enter the electrical trade in electrical estimating, industrial controls and electrical design.
