NEW - 30 Week / 900 Hours Program
Interested in Training For An Electrical Career?
Would you enjoy a career working with your hands while troubleshooting and solving technical problems? A career as a Residential and Commercial Electrician may be right for you. Electricians are highly respected professionals whose services are essential to both homeowners and commercial organizations.
Each Day Is Different
Electricians work both indoors and outdoors. Unlike a desk job, electricians often travel to a different worksite each day. Electricians may work in private homes, businesses, industrial facilities, telecommunications and security companies; at constructions sites and on solar and wind installation projects--even in the marine industry, keeping a ship’s electronics in proper working order. Depending on the job, Electricians may install electrical components, equipment and systems, make repairs; test electrical and electronic equipment and systems; and even plan the layout of construction projects.
Learn By Doing
In the classroom, you'll study electrical theory, safety, blueprint reading and applications of the National Electrical Code in residential settings. In the shop, you'll install electrical panels, breakers, grounding, fuses and residential and commercial wiring variations, plus install and repair switches, lights and alarms, motor controls and electrical motors. Read more about the areas of concentration covered in the Residential and Commercial Electrician program.
In Just Seven Months
At MTTI, we stress the importance of hands-on learning; 50-60% of your time will be spent in the shop performing the same types of tasks that electricians do at actual work sites. During the 30 week program, you will gain confidence in your ability to use skills required for entry-level employment in the electrical industry. Students attend classes five days a week (Monday - Friday), and a 120-hour internship, to complete the program in seven months.
Each student in the Residential and Commercial Electrician program is provided with a professional tool kit to use throughout the program. If you obtain training-related employment within 90 days of graduating the program, you get to keep the tools!*
