In the first year of this two-year program the students learn the basics of the National Electrical Code. While learning the National Electrical Code students perform related projects in the electrical shop consisting of six common wiring methods and the necessary tools to install the materials. Concurrent with the practical work is the study of the theory of electricity.
The second-year students continue with advanced studies of the National Electrical Code, and they also receive a blueprint reading course. Practical projects for these students are: service entrance equipment, motor starters, motor controls, electric heat Programable Controllers (PLC’S). Much of the seniors’ time is spent outside the shop on these projects.
