Small Industrial Electrician

The Industrial Electrician C.T.S. Program is designed to prepare students for small industrial entry-level electrician positions. Building and equipping electrical power generating plants, installation and servicing of electrical systems for factories, workshops, or any other industrial setting that use electrical energy for heating, lighting, cooling are other operations among the career opportunities for which students will prepare.

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.


Small Industrial Electrician courses are offered at the River City Site.
