Northwest Technical College will host an open house for its electrical construction program May 3 from 1–3 p.m.
Prospective electricians are invited to explore NTC’s facilities, meet with faculty and students, learn about career possibilities available in electrical construction and register for fall classes.
Construction electricians build, install, maintain and repair electrical systems that provide heat, light or power to residential, commercial and industrial structures. Students in NTC’s program also study green energy technologies and sustainable residential electricity, preparing them for work in emerging energy careers.
Technical and general courses offer a mix of theory and hands-on learning in classrooms, labs and at job sites. NTC electrical construction students learn wiring methods, blueprint reading, material selection, programmable controllers and national electric code.
NTC Electrical Construction graduates enter the workforce as construction electrician apprentices with salaries around $44,000 per year, and are equipped to pursue journeyman or master electrician’s licenses in the future.
