ABOUT THE PROGRAM
MTI’s Electricity program has been developed to provide students with the essential theory and hands-on practical experience on residential and commercial wiring techniques and applications, as well as, industrial controls. Electrical is a licensed trade that requires not only highly technical knowledge and skills but also a thorough understanding of the Massachusetts State Electrical Code. Students will master wiring methods used in commercial, industrial and residential wiring, blueprint reading, operating principles of motors, transformers, photovoltaic systems and controlling circuits, as well as, the Massachusetts State Electrical Code. The evening format will allow students the opportunity to work as electrical apprentices during the day while gaining confidence learning the trade from an electrical teacher in the evening.
Graduates of MTI’s Electricity program will be prepared for entry into the Electrical skilled trades industry, including apprenticeship. To be eligible to sit for the Massachusetts Board of Electricity Journeyman’s Licensure exam, apprentices need to complete 8,000 work experience hours and 600 classroom theory hours. This program includes (300 hours) towards fulfillment of the 600 required hours of classroom theory and up to 400 hours of work experience towards the Journeyman Electrician License.
