This program prepares you for the many career opportunities in the electrical industry. A thorough treatment of DC, AC, and polyphase electric circuits and solid-state power devices minimizes the possibility of technological obsolescence. Motor controls and programmable controllers let you design and build control systems. The electrical installation courses use the latest techniques according to the National Electrical Code. The electrical code and fire alarm classes are especially useful as preparation for NICET (National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies) state license and certification examinations. This program is excellent for electricians, engineers, firefighters, building department inspectors, and maintenance personnel because it uses an extensive lab environment for important, hands-on experience in electrical classes.
