Industrial Maintenance Electrical Technology

Last Updated: 3/13/2019 3:15 AM

Are you ready to take charge of your future? A bright future awaits you in the Industrial Maintenance Electrical field.

  • Install, repair, and maintain the machinery used in manufacturing and industry

  • Experience a workplace-simulated lab setting that will give you real-world training

  • Master the operation of machinery and preventative maintenance requirements on electrical motors, conveyors, pneumatic tools, and production tools

  • Learn to draw and understand diagrams, sketches, troubleshooting and operation manuals


The Electricity Program prepares students to meet the high demand for qualified electricians in Kentucky, and the nation as a whole. Students who complete the two-year program are prepared to enter apprenticeship programs right after high school. Others begin working for electrical contractors, some of whom offer their own apprenticeship programs. Electricians, like many high-demand trades people, are well-paid, and the wages increase considerably with knowledge and licensing.

 

The Electrical class is a two year program. The first year is an introduction to the basic theory of DC and AC circuits, including circuit analysis techniques, introductory magnetism and transformer principles. In addition, you will learn the materials and procedures used in construction wiring. The second year focuses on the growing role of electricians in the complex AC and DC circuits, as well as, expanding the knowledge and skills needed to work in commercial and industrial construction sites. 

 

If you enjoy working with your hands and problem-solving, the ATC’s Electricity program may be for you. You’ll learn how to fix the wiring in your home, and may even get a head start on a well-paying, lifelong career.
