Program / Admission Details

Program Description
The Electrical Apprenticeship program provides a solid understanding of the National Electrical Code (NEC), its layout, the requirements for different electrical systems, and the components of those systems. This program discusses the risks involved with electricity and electrical systems as well as the safety equipment and measures that are in place to protect electricians and the general public alike.
NOTE: The State of Utah requires electrical apprentices to have 576 classroom hours and 8,000 on-the-job training hours to become licensed Journeyman Electricians. Students also must pass the state Journeyman Electrician exam. Davis Technical College does not provide on-the-job training nor act as a sponsor for apprentices. Individuals are responsible for finding their own employment. Davis Tech suggests that students work as licensed apprentice electricians before beginning this program. All electricians must register with the Utah State Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL).
