Electrical Technologies Program
The Electrical Technologies program provides training essential for entry-level positions as residential electricians, plant maintenance electricians, and wind farm technicians. During the first year, students will develop a solid electrical foundation essential to the many fields of the electrical and electronics industry. The eight-week summer internship will provide relevant industry work experience to insure a classroom-to-work transition. The second year of the program will provide additional skills in motor controls, programmable controllers, motor fundamentals, industrial wiring, and conduit bending. Upon successful completion of the program, students are awarded an Associate in Applied Sciences Degree. With the completion of the Electrical Technologies degree and working as an electrician for 6,000 more hours after graduation, the student will be eligible to take the State of Iowa Journeyman Electrical License exam. This agreement that we have with the State of Iowa only works for the State of Iowa and not with any other state. We are currently not looking to see if our degree is acceptable with any other state.
