Electrical Technology, A.A.S.

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, climate control, security and communications.

JCCC offers a 64-credit-hour associate of applied science degree program and a 29-credit-hour vocational certificate program. Both programs emphasize hands-on training integrated with a knowledge of theory and study of the National Electrical Code that prepares students to take a national licensure exam.

The associate of applied science degree program prepares students to enter the electrical trade in four types of electrical occupations: residential, commercial, industrial and maintenance. The program also prepares students for continued education in electrical contracting/management, electrical design and industrial/electronic controls.
