Electricity  introduces students to installation and maintenance of electrical systems for a variety of purposes, including climate control, security, and communications. Electricians may install and maintain the electronic controls for machines in business and industry.
Electricians also install coaxial or fiber optic cable for computers and other telecommunications equipment. In addition, they may connect and program automated robotic industrial systems. Students successfully completing this Tech Prep program are eligible to receive college credit through Rhodes State College.
Students will learn to 
  • Design, stage, and install commercial and residential electrical wiring from "rough in" to "finish"
  • Program robotics and interpret blueprints using logical thinking and math
  • Troubleshoot analog circuits and digital telecommunications for safe and efficient operation
The Electricity program is part of Vantage RAMTEC
