Available Programs

  • Electrician Apprenticeship
    Building Systems, Construction, and Manufacturing

    Electricians install and maintain electrical wiring systems, supplying light, power, air-conditioning and refrigeration for private and commercial buildings.

    As homes and businesses becoming increasingly wired to meet the growing technological needs, electricians will be in greater demand to update and maintain older electrical systems and equipment. The emerging alternative energy industry will also provide increased career opportunities in the field.

    Prepare for a career as an electrician through technical and practical instruction on residential, commercial, and industrial electrical systems, including proper grounding, GFCIs, and maintenance and testing of wiring.

    While we strive to provide students with the best tools to prepare for their careers, we cannot and do not guarantee employment.

  • Facilities Management

  • Plumber Apprenticeship
    Building Systems, Construction, and Manufacturing

    Plumbers are best known for showing up when a burst pipe fills the basement with water or the hot water heater fails and showers are suddenly ice cold, but residential work makes up just one part of the career, as plumbers also play a vital part in new construction and commercial settings, consulting blueprints, installing or maintaining pipe systems, and securing different types of fixtures.

    Professionals in this field make up one of the largest and highest paid construction occupations in the country, with excellent job opportunities.
