The Electrical Technology program is a two year program. The program will cover AC electrical theory, residential construction wiring, and light commercial wiring.
All students will receive a State of Maine Electrical Helper’s license and will be required to complete the OSHA 10 hour safety course.
Class time is split between class instruction, practical wiring, labs and real world projects in the school and local community. Sections of the National Electrical Code that pertain to residential wiring are covered in great detail. There is a full size ranch-style house framed in the classroom that students will wire to code.
Students will have an opportunity to compete in the SkillsUSA competition at the local, state, and national level. The Electrical Technology Program exposes students to basic electrical technology, which they can build upon to develop their careers. Students will leave the program with the skills needed to work for an electrical contractor at an entry level position and with the skills needed to continue their education.
