The Industrial Electricity program is designed to prepare the student for employment as an electrician upon successful completion of the program. The student will receive instruction in general wiring methods, commercial, and industrial electrical wiring as well as training in electrical controls for machines and electric motors.
Electricians work with blueprints during installation of electrical systems in factories, office building, homes, and other structures. Electricians not only install electrical systems, but also provide maintenance and locate and correct problems before breakdowns occur.
Electricians must follow the National Electric Code and comply with state and local building codes when they install systems.
A large part of the program’s training takes place in the field as students help wire large industries, homes, and other buildings.
