Students interested in a future as an electrician participate in this two-year NYSED Approved CTE Program to learn how to control electricity and to run modern technology. Basic year students study single-phase power systems. They learn to install electrical equipment, which meets industry standards for housing and small business applications, as well as the skill to troubleshoot electrical issues they encounter. Students also examine emerging power systems such as solar, wind, and hybrid technologies.
Second-year students study three-phase power systems, conduit installations and special systems installed in commercial and industrial applications such as fire alarm, controls, and low voltage technology. Second-year students may attend a co-op with a local electrical contractor working in the field to attain valuable on-the-job experience while getting paid and earning credit.
