Electrical Trades

Experienced electricians are in serious demand. Career & Techs Electrical Trades program offers each student the opportunity to learn basic electrical skills and to progress to the cutting edge of 21st century green technologies. Students learn fundamental skills in electrical theory and through classroom instruction and hands-on shop lessons, they can become successful residential, commercial and industrial wiring professionals.

In each theory class and lab, students construct the circuits discussed, gaining skill and experience as they move from residential into commercial and industrial wiring. The materials, meters and methods used in Electrical Trades give students an in-depth understanding of their field and the knowledge needed to work with the latest environmentally friendly, or "green" technologies.

Units of study include residential and commercial/industrial wiring, control equipment, photovoltaic systems, motors and generators, lighting branch circuits and fixtures, national electrical code. Electrical Trades students work on projects such as wiring a modular home, working with computer network technician students on a Smart Home, and powering up and testing a photovoltaic panel.

Professional Certification

Students in the Electrical Trades program are prepared to earn certification through the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER).They also may earn advanced standing in the NJATC (IBEW) programs.

Post-Secondary Education

Post-secondary education in the electrical industry is available through one-, two- and four-year college programs. Specialized training is also available at technical schools or through apprenticeships, and some employers pay for such education. Increased levels of education and training can lead to higher levels of employment and salary. Many students gain an edge in these programs by beginning their education at Career & Tech.
