Electric Program

Electric is a journeyman profession that requires candidates to train under a master electrician before being eligible to sit for licensure. EBI’s Electric Program is approved by the State of Kentucky Department of Housing, Buildings, and Construction and the Kentucky Department of Labor as a licensing education program. The program is a four-year approach thoroughly covering the practice of electric in residential, commercial and industrial settings. 

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.
