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 Certificate is a 30 credit hour program that is completed in two semesters. Designed to give students the basic skills to gain entry-level employment as a residential or commercial electrician, the curriculum emphasizes hands-on training integrated with knowledge of theory and study of the National Electrical Code. As a requirement for completion, students will sit for their local licensure exam.
After attainment of the certificate, students can complete advanced studies toward the Electrical Technology Associate of Applied Science. Totaling 64 credit hours, this program prepares students to work in the electrical trade in estimating, industrial power and control, and solar photovoltaic installation.
