Our electrical trades program has
advanced to the national level of competition six of the last eight years.
Four students compete together
in the electrical, construction,
plumbing, and masonry fields.
These Leander students represented
our district at the state skills contest.
Students learn a variety of wiring skills for commercial and residential installations.
Students completing this program will receive the Construction Electricity Career Passport.
This Career Passport will enable the student to provide valuable documentation of the training and skills they have acquired while participating in the Electrical Trades Program.
Upon graduationstudents will continue their education by participating in an Electrical Apprenticeship Training School.
The programs are offered by the Independent Electrical Contractors Association & International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
The employers who hire our students require their employees to complete this 4-year apprenticeship program and will reimburse the students for tuition and fees.
This program meets one per week (4hrs.).
Students entering college may apply the skills they have acquired in this program toward degrees such as Electrical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering.
In addition, they could work in this field for financial support of their post-secondary goals.“Real WorldExperience”
