Electrical Code and Theory
Chris Kelly and Paul Chandler
Apprentice - Journeyman - Master
Would you like to become a licensed electrician? According to the Massachusetts State Board of Electrical Examiners, before you take the licensing exam you must complete: 8000 hours of employment (approximately 4 years) as an apprentice under the direct supervision of a holder of a MA Class B Journeyman’s license and 600 hours of classroom instruction (8 modules – approximately 75 hours each) in electrical code and theory from an approved school based on the current National Electrical Code. There is no set order for the two requirements listed above. For example, you may start working as an electrical apprentice first, or you may start classes first, or do both concurrently.
These courses are being taught by Chris Kelly and Paul Chandler, electrical teachers at Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School. Classes meet weekday evenings (three hours twice per week for fourteen weeks) so that you can work and go to school. Enrollment is limited to 20 students.
