(Jefferson Davis Campus and George County Center)

The Electrical Technology program prepares individuals to install, operate, maintain, and repair electrically energized systems such as residential, commercial, and industrial electrical wiring; DC and AC motors and controls; and electrical distribution panels. Instruction in the use of test equipment and meters is included. Safety training is an integral part of the instructional program.

A student completing this program should be able to enter the workforce as a second- or third-year apprentice or a second-or first- class helper, requiring one or two years of on-the-job experience prior to receiving first- class journeyman classification, based on local methods of certification.

This program may lead to an Associate of Applied Science of Occupational Education Degree and is preparatory for employment upon graduation from MGCCC. Where a transfer to a senior college or university is desired, a conference should be scheduled with a community college advisor for advisement.

All students completing a career or technical program must complete either the MS-CPAS (Mississippi Career Planning and Assessment System) or an MGCCC Board- approved Technical Attainment Assessment where applicable. See your advisor for further details.
