STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math -

Our Apprenticeship program focuses on the theory based application of electricity and the science behind it. Our students learn how to calculate conductor resistance, electron flow, voltage drop, and other variables that affect electrical installations. All of these factors have a math based component that the student uses to solve complex electrical calculations. Another element of the science of electrical problem solving is the use of technology in the form of high-tech digital meters to test, read and  record ampacity, voltage  and resistance.
