Students must be currently working in a registered apprenticeship program in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training.
A five year apprenticeship emphasizes the skill set required to be a highly skilled craftsman. The Electrician installs, maintains, operates, or repairs electrical equipment.
The work of the electrical construction worker can be divided into broad categories such as new construction, remodeling, maintenance, and repair. While the jobs differ, the mental and physical skills acquired in this well designed and administered apprenticeship training program prepare the electrical worker for the entire range of work.
Much of the work involves installation, assembling, testing, repairing, layout and design of electrical wiring, fixtures, and apparatus used for power, light, heating, air conditioning and many types of control systems. Many jobs now incorporate computers and fiber optics.
The apprenticeship certificate recognizes student attaining journey level status at the completion of the technical studies. Apprentices may apply technical studies together with general education coursework toward the Associate of Applied Science degree with a concentration in Electrical Construction.
