Electrical Technology


This one-year program prepares students to install, operate, maintain, and repair electrical systems; including residential, commercial & industrial wiring, motor controls, and electrical distribution panels. Students get extensive hands-on training in electrical troubleshooting and development of problem-solving skills in residential, commercial, and industrial electrical procedures.

To meet graduation requirements for this program, students must successfully complete the specified courses listed below with a “C” average (GPA of 2.00) or better. A grade of “C” or higher is required in each ELT course to progress in the program.
