Electricians work both indoors and outdoors. Unlike a desk job, electricians often travel to a different worksite each day. Electricians may work in private homes, businesses, industrial facilities, telecommunications and security companies; at constructions sites and on solar and wind installation projects–even in the marine industry, keeping a ship’s electronics in proper working order. Depending on the job, Electricians may install electrical components, equipment and systems, make repairs; test electrical and electronic equipment and systems; and even plan the layout of construction projects.
In the classroom, you’ll study electrical theory, safety, blueprint reading and applications of the National Electrical Code in residential settings. In the shop, you’ll install electrical panels, breakers, grounding, fuses and residential and commercial wiring variations, plus install and repair switches, lights and alarms, motor controls and electrical motors. Read more about the areas of concentration covered in the Residential and Commercial Electrician program.
At MTTI, we stress the importance of hands-on learning; much of your time will be spent in the shop performing the same types of tasks that electricians do at actual work sites. During the 30 week program, you will gain confidence in your ability to use skills required for entry-level employment in the electrical industry. Students attend classes five days a week (Monday – Friday), and a 120-hour internship, to complete the program in seven months.
Each student in the Residential and Commercial Electrician program is provided with a professional tool kit to use throughout the program. If you obtain training-related employment within 90 days of graduating the program, you get to keep the tools!*

"If you are thinking about attending MTTI—do it. You won’t be disappointed. MTTI takes time and care to get to know each student. The classes are smaller, so there is more one-on-one time than at many schools. This is going to be my life, my career. After an electrical job is complete, I feel a sense of accomplishment. The best thing is, electrical work won’t be phased out. There will always be companies hiring in electric—there will always be jobs."—Brady Snook, 2019 Graduate
Electrical Apprentice at Reilly Electric (RELCO)
"A few months out of school, I know more than most apprentices who have been there two years. The first day on the job, I stayed confident, working off of what I had learned at school. Within a few weeks, the Foreman said, “Brian, you’re running the second floor.” A bit nervous about having to oversee other apprentices, as I showed I could handle it, I was given more and more responsibility."—Brian Lechan, 2022 Graduate
Electrical Apprentice at S&W Electrical
"MTTI taught me about electrical work from the ground up, bringing a complete novice to a level suitable to become an apprentice. If you're looking for a position in the trades, start here. It's worth it to learn the process to be able to navigate the National Electrical Code (NEC) and learn the tools of the trade."—Connor Perry, 2019 Graduate
