Residential Wiring & Electricity

Students learn how to install, maintain, and repair electrical wiring, equipment and fixtures. To be employed as an electrician, training involving both hands-on experience and learning from experienced workers is a must. Here at LCTI, students get exactly that.

This certificate program prepares individuals with the knowledge and skills needed for employment in the residential electrical trade. The curriculum offers a basic framework of electrical theory and provides the hands-on skills needed to install, service and maintain electrical equipment in residential settings. Class includes instruction on electrical safety, trade tools, electrical theory, common residential wiring installations, troubleshooting and repairing residential service, determining circuit load calculations and NEC Code compliance. Students will have the opportunity to complete the OSHA 10 Hour Construction Safety training and prepare for a municipal licensing exam.
