Using electrical codes as guidance, electrical students learn the correct installation of various wiring methods used in all types of construction. The electrical program provides students with a broad range of experiences covering many new and existing technologies in power, communication, energy conservation, audio/video, security, fire safety, and lighting. Theory and shop classes conform to state standards allowing students to earn hours required by the state to become a licensed electrician. There is currently a shortage of licensed electricians both in the State of Massachusetts as well as in the USA. Qualified students can participate in a strong cooperative work program with many employers in the area. Many students retain their co-op employment in the electrical field upon graduation right into getting their Journeyman Electrician License.
