The Electrical Construction Academy will prepare students for employment and post-secondary studies in the electrical trade and related occupations.
All courses involve classroom and electrical lab work and all courses will lead to NCCER national certifications in the electrical trade. Students earning these certifications will have their name and certification level entered into a national database for future job opportunities. Students will also earn their OSHA safety certification and, upon graduation, will be eligible for employment with local area electrical contractors.

Prerequisite: NCCER Electrical Technologies 1
This is the second of three one-credit courses in the Electrical Technologies pathway. It is designed to provide students with theory, practice, and skills development. Emphasis is placed on fundamental knowledge and skills in basic wiring, understanding circuitry, performing basic wiring patterns, and using the National Electric Code (NEC) leading to NCCER Electrical Level 2 Credential.
NCCER Electrical Technologies 3 (17105G1000)
Prerequisite: NCCER Electrical Technologies 2
This is the third of three required one-credit courses in the Electrical Technologies pathway. It is designed to provide students with theory, practice, and skills development. Emphasis is placed on application and skills in intermediate wiring, circuitry, wiring patterns, and using the National Electric Code (NEC) leading to the NCCER Electrical Level 3 Credential.
NCCER Senior Project (430129)
This optional senior year course offers students an opportunity to perform “live work” under the direction of the instructor. Students will perform supervised field work to gain valuable experience. This is an uncompensated student work experience.
