If you’re interested in being a residential, commercial, or industrial electrician, pursue the Industrial & Commercial Wiring degree. The Industrial and Commercial Wiring program provides a unique combination of class and lab experience combined with a cooperative training program (summer internship). The first year of study builds your foundation of knowledge in electrical theory, wiring applications, and the study and application of the National Electric Code. In your second year, you will gain hands-on training in industrial/ commercial wiring, programmable controls (PLCs), electronic fundamentals, and motor control circuitry. You will also develop a working knowledge of AC and DC electrical theory, blueprint reading, and three-phase power distribution. The National Electric Code is emphasized in all areas of study. Upon completion of this program you will possess the skills, knowledge and basic tools necessary to enter the electrical trade. NCC graduates have enjoyed numerous job opportunities in the areas of residential wiring, industrial and commercial construction wiring, electrical sales and plant maintenance electrician; these entry level positions have often led to leadership roles within the organization and self-employment opportunities. One year of high school algebra is recommended.
