DACC’s electrician program teaches students installation and maintenance techniques for residential, commercial and industrial electrical systems. Faculty members of the program bring to the classroom many years of real-world experience. DACC’s general electrician program includes training courses structured around NCCER curriculum and National Electrical Code (NEC) standards.
Concepts discussed in lecture are applied through hands-on lab projects that utilize DACC’s lab facilities. Students work on both team-based and individual projects that simulate real-world job sites. Many of DACC’s students work with licensed journeyman electricians and contractors to obtain on-the-job training that will apply towards their eligibility to sit for their journeyman electrician license.
