Vocational Certificate Program

This program is designed to provide the student with the necessary skills to perform the duties of an industrial electrician in most industrial environments. Topics covered in the eight individual courses include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. DC and AC Theory; 
  2. industrial electronic components, principles of operation, applications, troubleshooting, and maintenance;
  3. industrial wiring techniques, power distribution components, NEC requirements for motors, transformers, feeders and mains, circuit breakers, and switch-gear; 
  4. AC & DC motors, maintenance, construction principles of operation and NEC requirements; 
  5. industrial motor controls, relay logic, 2 and 3 wire, forward and reversing, timing, sequencing, symbology, ladder diagrams, magnetic starters, control relays, and virtually all other control functions; 
  6. programmable logic controllers (PLCs) principle of operation, digital logic concepts, I/O designations, wiring methods, inter face applications, ladder diagrams, symbology, basic programming concepts and differences in manufacturers; 
  7. maintenance and troubleshooting of electrical, pneumatic, and hydraulic components and systems.
Approximately 60–70 percent of the training is "hands-on" utilizing actual industrial equipment and situations emphasizing electrical safety in all of the training environments, classrooms, and labs.

Basic minimum skill levels in math, reading, and language must be attained in order to complete this program.

Students wishing to enter this program of study should be advised by the instructor or program manager prior to enrollment in these courses.
