Join us in Our In-Person Journeyman Program
If you are interested in becoming an electrician and want the experience of hands-on labs and teacher interaction, our In-class or Livestream options may be for you. Many courses can be taken via Livestream (unless labs are required). In either case, the student is required to be logged-in or in the classroom at set times. All of our instructors are Master Electricians and know what you need to become a proficient electrician. Seats are limited and the program starts each September and runs through June.
Below is the list of courses in the order they are presented in our In-Person, Journeyman program.
First Year Courses
Below is a list of the courses included in the first year of our Journeyman Program. We arrange classes in this order so as to include the required 225 hours of education to sit for the Limited to Residential house wiring license. Some students may be able to sit for their Limited to Residential exam after they complete the first year of school, so we have arranged the courses to allow for that. Students will still need to complete the required work hours in the field before sitting for the exam. There are 45 hours of instruction in each of the following:
- Basic Electricity I
- Basic Electricity II
- Controls I
- Blueprint Reading
- Intro to the National Electric Code
- Conduit Bending
Second Year Courses
Below are the courses that our in-person students take in their second year. Upon completion of the second year of classes, the student will have the necessary 576 hours of education to sit for the State of Maine Electrical Journeyman license. Students will still need to complete the required work experience in the field before they can sit for the exam. The second year of the program includes 45 hours of instruction in each of the following areas:
- Controls II
- Advanced Industrial Controls
- Advanced National Electrical Code (Level II)
