Electrical Trades

Description

The MVCTC Electrical Trades program prepares students for a career using technical knowledge and physical skill. This hands-on program involves the installation and maintenance of electrical materials and systems.

Students in the MVCTC Electrical Trades program layout, assemble, install, maintain, and test electrical fixtures, apparatus, control equipment, and wiring used in lighting, power, communications, and electrical systems for residential, commercial, and industrial facilities. Students develop safe work practices and proper use of tools and equipment used in the electrical industry. Students will use algebraic math formulas to calculate electrical power, wire size, and conduit bends. They install high technology equipment and controls, which requires use of the National Electric Code. Because of the teamwork nature of the profession, the student's daily attendance is very important.

Many students in the Electrical Trades Program participate in the Apprenticeship Program. This provides the student an excellent career path choice with contract based yearly pay raises and continuing education. These work-study jobs involve electrical work in all kinds of commercial, industrial, institutional, and residential facilities. Careers may involve computer wiring, robotics, engineering technology, motor and lighting controls, and video/communications. The Electrical apprenticeship and professional organizations are often the leaders in continuing education, safety training, and career support in the construction career opportunities.
