Licensed electricians are always in demand due to their role installing, maintaining, and repairing electrical systems and equipment.
Using industry-standard tools and materials, students learn to install, repair and monitor electrical systems while learning how electricity is controlled via circuits, switches, boxes and meters. Safety is emphasized throughout. This includes personal safety as well as protecting building occupants by following the standards of the Massachusetts Electrical Code. Other knowledge areas covered by the curriculum include blueprint reading, reading wiring diagrams, and understanding basic principles of electrical conduction.
This program is only available as a State-Approved (Chapter-74) program. This means that programs will provide all of the training required to begin entry-level work in the field.
