A Growing Need For Trained Entry-Level Electricians   

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.

"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."
