Electrical students learn and develop skills required by a licensed electrician. A student graduating from the electrical program will earn credit toward the requirement for a Massachusetts Journeyman electrician License. All aspects of the electrical industry are studied. Wiring systems from simple single-family homes to large commercial and industrial buildings are analyzed, diagrammed and built. Magnetic starters, motor controls, transformers, logic controls, alarm and signaling circuits, cable TV, telephone, home theatre, and computer network wiring are all studied. Practical installations are fabricated in the shop. Science, Math and English are applied and integrated to the curriculum and the National Electrical Code is introduced as a text. Other important aspects of the electrical trade such as permits, inspections, insurance and proper licensing are also studied. Graduates are well prepared to serve as electrical apprentices and continue their education in the Electrical Trade.
