• Electrical Program
    The Electrical program is ideal for students who enjoy science in action, problem-solving, and managing a project from conception to completion. Through shop workstations and real-world worksite experience, students are trained on modern electrical devices, apparatus, and wiring used in residential, commercial, and industrial settings, as well as advanced electrical theory and electrical code updates. Students also learn to install and troubleshoot equipment, including motors, controls, transformers, and advanced high and low-voltage systems. After completion and graduation from the Electrical program, students will have over 1,500 work hours and 225 theory hours to be credited towards the state journeyman’s licensing exam. Current Massachusetts licensing requires 8,000 work hours and 600 theory hours for the state exam.

    Hands-on Projects
    Commercial & Industrial Wiring: Most people only think of residential wiring when they think of the electrical trade, but there are ample opportunities in commercial and industrial wiring. Through in-class projects, students will wire metal stud rooms to reflect commercial business offices. These projects teach them to utilize the multiple styles of wiring methods needed to wire large commercial and industrial spaces effectively.

    Overhead & Underground Services: When you flip on a light switch in your home, you are engaging with multiple electrical systems. Although you may not understand the complexity of the wiring, our electrical students do. While wiring a bathroom or kitchen, our students learn how to bring power into a building through both ground and overhead methods. Connecting the power to a circuit breaker directs the electric currents throughout the house. These hands-on processes also allow our students to understand local and state codes and regulations associated with residential buildings.
