The Electrical Service Protocol course educates the student on electrical theory and residential applications. Let’s face it…….electricity can be very complex. If taught in the proper manner, the complexity can be removed and the light can be shined! The student learns the Electrical trade via several different service calls, therefore they are gaining real-world experience in a lab setting. The Total Tech Electrical laboratory allows the student to put to use ALL of the theory that has been learned in the classroom, therefore reinforcing via hands-on. Students will learn safety procedures, electrical basics, and the tools of the trade. It is through Total Tech’s full house Electrical training unit, along with the individual wiring training units, where students gain the knowledge required to begin their new career in the Electrical trade. The student will learn installation, along with troubleshooting and repair of electrical systems.
