    This comprehensive program provides students with the skills to become both construction and maintenance electricians. Construction electricians lay out, assemble, install, and test electrical fixtures and wiring used in electrical systems on construction sites. Maintenance electricians maintain and keep many different types of electrical equipment in good working order principally by detecting and repairing defective equipment before a breakdown occurs.

    The curriculum covers many areas including: residential wiring and service, wiring alternatives, installation of electrical environmental circuits, DC machines, commercial and industrial wiring, electrical maintenance, planning and site work on commercial/industrial jobs and services, power distribution transformers, single-phase transformers and AC machines, electrical motors and controls, three-phase transformers and AC machines, PLCs, electrical aspects of HVAC and related facilities, emergency power systems, and energy production. Instruction is also provided in the installation of electrical distribution systems both overhead and underground.

    Students at the East Campus will have the opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge by helping with the construction of a custom built home under the direction of their instructors.
