Electrical Occupations

The Electrical Occupations (EO) program enables students to gain the necessary foundational skills to become a residential and/or commercial electrician. The basic electrical theory for residential wiring includes 100 & 200 amp services, branch circuits and is based on the latest National Electric Code (NEC). A modern residence blueprint serves as the basis for the wiring schematics and cable layouts. Focus is on the technical skills required to perform electrical installations. Topics covered include Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter and Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter NEC requirements, calculating conductor sizes and voltage drop, determining appliance circuit requirements, sizing service, grounding service and equipment.

This program introduces students to the basics of three-phase wiring for commercial environments. Students learn to apply the latest NEC for wiring a commercial building in a step-by-step process. EO students will apply electrical standards to appliance circuits, branch-circuit installation, special systems, reading electrical and architectural drawings and calculating circuit loads for on-the-job assessments.

Throughout the EO training at the ICTC, students will have practical applications and troubleshooting projects to apply NEC theory.

The students may attain an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) ten hour training course in “Construction Safety & Health” as well as a training course on a Bobcat VersaHandler Telescopic Fork Lift.
