The Electrical Technology certificate program is a 30-credit hour program that includes theory and hands-on application. The program prepares students to take the Journeyman Electrician exam. In Kansas, individual cities and counties issue licenses for electricians. The first requirement is typically attainment of the Journeyman classification through training and passing the Journeyman exam. 

The program utilizes the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) curriculum. NCCER is a nationally recognized credentialing and certification system. Students completing the program will cover NCCER Core and Electrical Level 1. Successful students will also obtain OSHA 10 certification. This program is aligned with the Kansas Board of Regents Electrical Technology Program CIP: 46.0302.

Electricians install, maintain, and repair electrical power, communications, lighting, and control systems in homes and businesses. Students may enter the industry as journeyman electricians, ready for on-the-job training in preparation for licensure.  The Kansas Labor Information Center (KLIC) indicates the median wage for electricians is $58,290 and the occupation is expected to grow 4.9% from 2020 to 2030..

In this program, students will learn about the electrical trade with strong emphasis on electrical safety.  Students will learn electrical theory and the National Electric Code. Students will obtain hands-on experience with electrical circuits, device boxes, raceways and fittings, conductors and cables. Additionally, students will learn how to read electrical construction drawings and how to use electrical testing equipment.
