Students spend three years in the Residential Apprenticeship Program learning to install power, communication and security systems, according to local codes and standards. They will work on houses, condominiums, apartment buildings and some assisted living facilities. During this three-year program, students attend 480 hours of related trade classes.
In the future, it’s possible that college credit could be given for these classes. Residential apprentices complete a minimum of 4,800 hours of on-the-job training with signatory contractors and receive a residential wireman certificate upon completion of the program.
