Academics: EIMT

Frequently Asked Questions

When do the classes start?

Classes for new students begin only in the Fall semester. If you start in the Spring semester, you will be taking your support classes such as Math, English and other general education requirements.

How long will I have to wait to get into the program?

Because there is such a high demand for this training, students typically end up waiting 2-3 years before they can actually start the electrical classes.

Can I be placed on a waitlist to get into the program?

Program Mission

The Electrical Installation & Maintenance Technology program's mission is to serve the community as a learning-centered, open door program that provides technical training to meet the demands of the electrical industry and the needs of the individual. An open-exit option allows the students to identify their career objectives and participate in program exploration.

Program Description

The curriculum is designed to prepare students with entry level knowledge and manipulative skills for employment in the electrical industry. The program combines theory with laboratory activities as an effective means of developing the skills essential to the electrical trade.

The student begins with the fundamentals of electricity and wiring of simple circuits, then progresses to residential interior wiring, three phase alternating current power, and wiring of more complex circuits and equipment. Safety is stressed as an integral part of each shop task. Emphasis is placed on wiring in accordance with the provisions contained in the National Electrical Code.
