Electrical Construction & Plumbing
About the Program:  A.O.S. Degree

The first year of this program focuses on electrical maintenance, layout, and installation stressing residential wiring during the first semester and commercial wiring during the second. You will develop skills in the electrical trade using a hands-on approach to learning. You will also learn to coordinate electrical installations with other trades and be familiar with blueprints, specifications, and code requirements. Related topics covered include electrical layout, blueprint reading, mathematics, and electrical theory.

During the second year courses relate to the plumbing trade which install’s and repair water, waste disposal, drainage, and gas systems in homes and commercial and industrial buildings. Plumbers also install plumbing fixtures—bathtubs, showers, sinks, and toilets—and appliances such as dishwashers and water heaters. Pipe fitters install and repair both high-pressure and low-pressure pipe systems used in manufacturing. Plumbers must be able to follow building plans or blueprints and instructions from supervisors, lay out the job, and work efficiently with the materials and tools of their trade.
