All programs emphasize hands-on training integrated with knowledge of theory and study of the National Electrical Code that prepares students to take a national licensure exam. Concepts discussed in lecture are applied through hands-on lab projects. All practical (hands-on) work is performed with an emphasis on shop and work site safety. We have a day program at the Sidney Collier site in New Orleans and a night program at the Jefferson site in Metairie. The content is the same in both the days and night programs; however the night program has been broken into smaller pieces to allow for full time day work and part time night school.
Upon completion of the Residential, Commercial and Small Industrial Electrician programs, students are eligible to receive the National Center for Construction and Education Research (NCCER) Core and Electrical Level 1 and 2 certifications. For more information on the Residential and Commercial Electrician programs, click the links on the side of the page.
The Small Industrial Electrician program prepares students to troubleshoot, test, repair and maintain electrical equipment in places such as factories, workshops, or any other industrial setting. Our small industrial program focuses on National Electric Code (NEC) standards, industrial wiring, solid state theory, digital logic functions, and motor controls. Students will apply knowledge gained in theory/lecture classes to hands-on projects in the lab.
