Electrical Construction & Refrigeration

About the Program:  A.O.S. Degree

The first year of this program focuses on electrical maintenance, layout, and installation stressing residential wiring during the first semester and commercial wiring during the second. You will develop skills in the electrical trade using a hands-on approach to learning. You will also learn to coordinate electrical installations with other trades and be familiar with blueprints, specifications, and code requirements. Related topics covered include electrical layout, blueprint reading, mathematics, and electrical theory.

During the second year of this program courses relate to air-conditioning and refrigeration systems which consist of many mechanical, electrical, and electronic components, such as motors, compressors, pumps, fans, ducts, pipes, thermostats, and switches. Students must be able to maintain, diagnose, and correct problems throughout the entire system. To do this, they adjust system controls to recommended settings and test the performance of the system using special tools and test equipment. Students can specialize in either installation or maintenance and repair. They also may specialize in doing heating work or air-conditioning or refrigeration.
