Electrical Technology Program at LSC-Creekside Center

Description

If you have been fascinated by electricity, then you might want to look at a career as an electrician. Electricians enjoy one of the higher-paid specialtyindustry fields with a solid future as America becomes more dependent on consistent and well-maintained supplies of electricity.

There are two general types of electrical work:

  • Construction work: includes reading blueprints, wiring, installing, and testing electrical systems; and
  • Maintenance work: involves troubleshooting, testing, fixing and upgrading already installed, improperly functioning, electrical systems.

Some electricians become electrical inspectors, enter teaching programs, or work as construction consultants. A few enter training programs to become contractors. Electricians are also finding that their profession is becoming linked with those who do computer and telecommunications wiring. More than 15 percent of electricians take additional classes on telecommunications systems, wiring, and electrical interfaces.

At Lone Star College electrician courses are offered that emphasize application more than theoretical development. The courses complement on-the-job training and mirror real world situations by providing classroom studies with hands-on applications in high-tech laboratories. The program also works with local electrician providers/companies to ensure that the class focus meets their needs and on preparing the student to pass the Texas State Licensing exam.
