Electrical Trades Technology is a two year career and technical education program designed to prepare students for entry level positions in electrical trades. This includes all aspects of residential wiring as well as commercial/industrial applications.
The junior year concentrates on basic wiring and basic electrical theory. Students will gain experience in residential wiring and basic conduit bending. By the end of the junior year students will have entry level skills and be certified through a ten hour OSHA Safety Course. Students will also earn seven credits towards graduation.
The senior year will consist of commercial and industrial wiring. Students will program PLC's, learn to control three phase motors, and learn skills in commercial conduit bending practices. Upon completion of this class students will have completed the Accredited N.C.C.E.R Curriculum in Core Skills and Level 1 Electrical Trades Curriculum. The Electrical Trades Technology Program has an articulation agreement with Hocking Technical College. College credit for the high school course can be transferred to Hocking Technical College.
