The Electrical Technical program is new to OHTS for the 2024-2025 school year. In the first year of the Electrical program, students learn the skills needed to wire all types of switches, lights and outlets. Students also learn how to set service boxes and breaker panels, bend conduit and install specialized fixtures. A solid foundation of how to work safely and understand the science of electricity is also part of the course. Students will apply their skills in "mock up" walls in our new building and also work in the modular home being built on site. After completing a two-year cycle of the programs, students will have earned 576 hours toward their Journeyman's Electrician license.
