They use different types of hand and power tools, such as pipe benders, to run and protect wiring. Many electricians work independently, but sometimes they collaborate with others. For example, experienced electricians may work with building engineers and architects to help design electrical systems in new construction. Some electricians also may consult with other construction specialists to help install or maintain electrical or power systems. At larger companies, electricians are more likely to work as part of a crew; they may direct helpers and apprentices to complete jobs.
This program will satisfy the educational requirements to take the State Journeyman Exam. MTECH’s Apprenticeship Programs are composed of two parts: (1) on-the-job training and (2) classroom instruction. The onthe-job training is provided by an outside sponsor (employer) who exposes the apprentice to practical applications in all areas of a chosen trade. The classroom related instruction is an organized form of instruction, designed to provide the apprentice with knowledge of the theoretical and technical aspects of his or her trade. Classroom related instruction will be held at one of MTECH’s Campuses.
