The Electrical Construction Technology program introduces students to the basic concepts of residential and commercial wiring. With an emphasis on safety, students install circuits, switches, conductors, circuit breakers and other electrical devices. Topics covered include selecting and ordering materials, supplies, tools, codes, blue print reading and low voltage wiring. Students are taught in compliance with the National Electrical Code (NEC)and the Residential Construction Academy (RCA) industry standards.” Students begin working toward their NCCER certifications immediately. DCTS instructors also provide students with exposure to solar power and other green technologies.
Students should expect to invest approximately $400 in specialized tools, uniforms, kits and reference books for this 3-year program.
