    Electrical Wiring Technology  (Bohlen & Sackett Career & Tech Centers)

    Experienced electricians are in serious demand. Here’s your opportunity to learn about the field in a hands-on, cutting edge two-year program. In the first year, it’s all about residential wiring techniques. You’ll build at least 40 different electrical wiring circuits within the first 10 weeks and also study conduit bending, AC/DC theory and national electrical code. Build on that knowledge in year two as you focus on commercial/industrial maintenance wiring, including installing and repairing conduits, motors, light fixtures and more. An internship experience with a local business adds to your skills. You’ll be prepared for entry-level employment or post-secondary education. This course is also open to adult students. High school students are given first priority for enrollment.
