Electrical Trades

 

 

Residential homes. Retail centers. Commercial parks. We see new construction building up all around us, indicating that as a diversified whole, the construction industry is still rock solid. The SCCTC Construction Technologies sequence continues to evolve with new business practices and technology, helping our graduates to be well trained and prepared for challenging careers in the construction field. The diversified coursework gives students a strong foundation in construction-related specialties, including carpentry, electrical systems installation and repair, and heating and air technology.

Electricity is America’s main source of energy and everyone is affected by it. In Electrical Trades, students are trained to install, maintain, troubleshoot, and repair commercial and residential electrical systems.


Hands-on
Students develop skills by working in a lab setting then progress to on-site projects. There are job-shadowing opportunities, mentoring, and apprenticeship programs available. Senior students wire the Project House each year.

Opportunities after Graduation
Students may continue their education at a four-year university, community college, technical institute, or registered apprenticeship program. The Electrical Trades Program can be a stepping stone. This program provides students with skills they can use to earn money through job placement or apprenticeships, while they pursue advanced training. The local International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers will also
sponsor students who qualify to attend Columbus State Community College.
