Purpose: The specialization in Electrical Technology is designed to qualify personnel in both electrical technology and management for employment in all areas of a construction firm. Students will be prepared for entry-level employment in positions involving direct use of technical skills in the construction business. Occupational objectives include engineering aide, construction project manager, construction supervisor, estimator, and facilities planning and supervision. The curriculum includes content, skills and knowledge courses that are equivalent to the electrical apprenticeship program at Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC).

Admission Requirements: Students must be registered apprentices enrolled in an approved apprenticeship program, have successfully completed an approved apprenticeship program, or have received their state Journeyman Electrician license. Students should seek program admission in the Counseling Center and will be required to take the English and mathematics assessment tests to determine if they require any developmental studies for the program.

Advanced Standing: Advanced standing opportunities are being developed for area high school students and apprentices. Credit may also be earned toward ELE 297 based on documented apprentice work-based learning.
