The Electrical Construction Technology Program begins with basic principles and progresses to more technical information. The early part of the program includes D.C. theory, related math, National Electrical Code, shop skills and safety. Related subjects are scheduled throughout the program. A good mathematics background with one year of high school algebra or trigonometry is required.
Students will learn to apply knowledge to actual projects in the shop or mock-ups. Students will wire the house project, built as a student project by our building trades classes.
Students will receive training in A.C. and D.C. motor and generator theory, transformers, lighting, three phase systems, motor control, solid state, variable frequency drives (VFD) and programmable logic controls (PLC).
The Electrical Construction Technology Program is approved by Minnesota State Board of Electricity. Credit is given toward the state electrical license upon completion of this two year course.
