Electric Apprenticeship Program

The curriculum is 100% centered on professional practice as electricians and is heavily rooted in teaching the electric code. Classroom discussions and activities help students understand relevant theories and how they apply on the job. The Electric Program is approved by the State of Kentucky Office of Housing, Building and Construction-Electrical Section as a licensing education program. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for the ICC Electricians exam administered through the State of Kentucky. Students may be eligible to take the examination at the conclusion of their second year of the program and continue to hone their knowledge as electricians in the final two years of schooling. In total, the program provides 576 instructional hours over four years.
