Career Passport

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.

Continuing Education

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.

Some of the contractors & organizations that support our program include: I.E.C., I.B.E.W., Randall Electrical, Bowne Electric, Beckett Electric, Design Electric, Walker Electric, Elliot Electric, etc.

These companies not only contribute financially to our high school program, they also employ many of our students each year.

The average salary of students entering the electrical field is between $10.00 and $12.50 per hour.

With the valuable training offered in this Electrical Trades Program, we typically help secure employment for 30 to 40 students in the electrical field each year.


After the successful completion of this program students seeking jobs in the electrical field will be employed. Many contractors come to Leander High School in May to interview & hire students.

Mr. Williams is the instructor. He has been an electrician since 1991. Before working at LHS, he was employed as a project manager and estimator for a private electrical contractor. He also teaches at Central Texas Independent Electrical Contractors Apprenticeship Training School, where he has been on staff for more than five years.
