The Electrical Technician program provides students with basic theoretical knowledge and skills on installation, operation, maintenance and repair of electrical apparatus and systems for both residential and commercial properties. Students are given instruction in the principles of electronics and electrical systems, wiring, power transmission, safety, appliances, estimation, testing, inspection, and applicable codes and standards. Note: required hours of “on the job training” beyond the completion of this program are necessary to apply for Texas state licensing. The Electrical Technician program prepares graduates for a career in the Electrician field at an apprentice level. Students will have the opportunity to learn the operation, installation, maintenance and repair essentials of electrical wiring, instrumentation, services and panels, and motors and motor controls. The knowledge and skills acquired in this program prepares graduates to begin working, under a Master Electrician, toward accumulation of required hours for state licensing. With these skills, graduates may find entry-level employment as wiring installers or technicians servicing electrical, instrumentation systems and/motors in a number of electrical and related trades. The average length of the program is 27 weeks for full time students.
