The Electrical Trades program enables students to develop marketable skills and gain the knowledge needed to excel at various jobs in the electrical industry such as electrician, apprentice lineman, maintenance electrician, and electrical sales. The electrical trade’s classes meet each day in indoor or outdoor labs specifically designed for practical work experience within the trade.

Safety rules, basic electricity, low voltage systems, ground fault circuit interceptors, correct and safe use of tools and equipment, design and installation of various circuits, use of the National Electrical Codes, and the study and practice of safe, efficient, and well-designed electrical systems for residential, commercial, and industrial facilities are the general topics covered in the program.

Students planning to pursue a Journeyman Electrician Certificate through the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department will gain one year of work experience from their electrical theory and lab experience at NTU. In order to improve their chances for acceptance into apprenticeship programs, students are strongly encouraged to take higher level math courses such as MTH-115 and/or MTH-120.
