Prerequisites: Algebra 1 and English 1 (see course catalog for specific requirements for CP and Honors)
Recommended Grades: 10, 11, 12
Course 1: Electricity 1
The Electricity 1 program is designed to prepare students for entry-level employment as an electrician or in related occupations. Electricity students receive instruction in AC and DC circuits, communication skills, leadership skills, human relations and employability skills, safety, effective work practices, and in the installation, operation, maintenance, and repair of residential and commercial electrical systems. Laboratory activities provide instruction in all phases of residential and commercial electrical wiring in accordance with the National Electrical Code. Students are introduced to Smart Technology to manage systems. There is a fee for this course.
Course 2: Electricity 2
Electricity 2 is a continuation of Electricity 1. Electricity students receive advanced instruction in AC and DC circuits, communication skills, leadership skills, human relations and employability skills, safety, effective work practices, and in the installation, operation, repair and maintenance residential. This course will also focus on the installation, repair, and maintenance of commercial and industrial electrical systems. Laboratory activities provide instruction in all phases of residential, commercial, and industrial electrical wiring in accordance with the National Electrical Code. Students will continue work with Smart Technology to manage systems. There is a fee for this course.
Course 3: Electricity 3
Electricity 3 will provide a survey of the theory, terminology, equipment, and practical experience in the skills needed for careers in the electrical field. This course typically includes safety, and the National Electrical Code and may cover such skills as those involved in building circuits; wiring residential, commercial, and/or industrial buildings; installing lighting, power circuits, cables, and smart systems; and estimating job costs. As students progress, their projects become more complex and expansive. A career exploration component may be offered. There is a fee for this course.
Course 4: Electricity 4
This is a project-based capstone course for graduating seniors who desire to continue with advanced electrical theory.
