Electrical Technology

Electricity is an integral part of everyday life. Almost every new technological device
needs some type of electrical supply. For this and many other reasons, Electrical
Technicians are and will remain in great demand. From simply wiring a residence to
being able to program the controllers for a major manufacturing plant, today's electrical
technician will require a strong background of technical knowledge.

Well trained electrical workers are in great demand by today's advancing technology
and by the growing residential, commercial, industrial construction industries,
petroleum production and petroleum refineries. Our program is designed to give you
the knowledge necessary to succeed in the electrical field. Installing and maintaining
electrical systems, as well as the ability to troubleshoot and repair these systems plays
a vital role in keeping today's economy and national livelihood at the highest standard
possible. Salaries begin at $28,000.00 and up to $95,000.00 depending on option taken,
location, and job requirements.
