Each student receives a professional tool kit for use throughout the program. Graduates who successfully enter verified training-related employment within 90 days, keep the tools to use on the job. The Tool Bonus Policy is outlined in the Student Orientation Booklet. Please see an Admissions Representative for complete details on the tool policy.
Employment of electricians is projected to grow 20% in Rhode Island and 29% in Massachusetts from 2020 to 2030*, much faster than the average for all occupations. As homes and businesses require more wiring, electricians will be needed to install the necessary components. The job prospects for electricians should be very good, as many employers report difficulty finding qualified applicants.
Each student in the Residential and Commercial Electrician program will complete a 120-hour internship with a trades-related company. The internship provides you with valuable experience in an actual work environment. You’ll have the opportunity to earn a positive reference for future employment, and may receive an offer of employment.
MTTI’s instructors are licensed electricians that have worked in the industry for many years and are highly experienced at installing, troubleshooting and repairing residential and commercial electrical systems. Each instructor meets the standards of approval set by the Massachusetts Office of Private Occupational Schools within the Division of Occupational Licensure (DOL), and the ACCSC (the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges). MTTI Instructors and Staff work together with Career Service Specialists to assist students in pursuing their career goals.
Your Financial Aid package (if you qualify) may include numerous ways of financing your education. Please read about Sources of Aid for more information about scholarships. Students in or applying to the Building & Property Trades Technician program can apply for a scholarship through the mikeroweWORKS Foundation: https://www.mikeroweworks.org/scholarship/
For information about electrical apprenticeship and licensing requirements, see an Admissions Representative.
Students who successfully complete the 900-hour program will receive a Residential and Commercial Electrician Diploma. Each of MTTI’s programs has been approved by the Massachusetts state education agency and ACCSC (Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges). For more information, please contact us.

"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
