Program Description
Graduates of the Electrical Techniques Program gain basic knowledge of electrical functions within a controlled electrical environment. Graduates have demonstrated achievement of vocational learning outcomes which relate to trade practices under the supervision of a qualified person. The program introduces a range of skills, knowledge, and attitudes required by graduates in order to gain a basic understanding of the electrical field.

Graduates of the program have had exposure to a number of electrical functions, such as assisting in the installation, testing, maintaining, and repairing, analyzing and troubleshooting specified electrical circuits, equipment, and systems, under the supervision of a qualified person. Graduates have a basic understanding of the principles and will need much more theory and practical hands-on training to be safe and productive in the electrical industry. This program introduces a number of common skills, knowledge, and attitudes essential to entry-level employees in the electrical field. Graduates may choose to write the Level I apprenticeship certification exam.

Semester 1
CM1903-A Communications I
Communications I is a practical course designed to help strengthen both oral and written skills. Students will be exposed to a variety of learning methods and communication formats. Emphasis will be placed on the use of appropriate structure, writing conventions and style. Students will also develop discipline-specific documents as well as learn the basics of portfolio assembly and presentation.

EE1034 Digital Circuits
This is an introductory course in logic circuit analysis. Simplification of logical expressions by Boolean Algebra, and truth tables are introduced. Two most popular logic IC families, TTL and CMOS with the production of flip-flops and their applications in shift registers and counters will be studied.

EE1206 Electrical Fundamentals
This course is an introduction to electricity. Its purpose is to develop a foundation for future courses. A clear understanding of basic concepts and their applications to problem solving will be stressed. Lecture topics include electrical quantities, Ohms Law, series circuits, parallel circuits, series-parallel circuits, magnetism, electromagnetism, alternating current and voltage.

GN1033 Health and Safety
This course is an introduction to the Occupational Health and Safety Act and Regulations. Topics include the Act and several related regulations. The student will also complete a valid WHMIS certification course during the semester.

IN1093 Computer Applications for Business and Technology
Students are introduced to commonly used features of the most widely used microcomputer applications – MS Word, MS Excel, and MS PowerPoint. Basic computer skills are required as prerequisites. A series of lectures, projects, and exercises will take advantage of Microsoft Office features. Words extensive menu, toolbar, and template features will be used to create various business documents. Project material is developed so that students will apply their software skills to course material throughout their program of studies.

MA1100 Mathematics I
This course covers basic algebra properties, graphing the straight line, basic geometry and trigonometry, and solving a system of equations algebraically. This course also covers vector addition by components and by the cosine and sine laws.

Semester 2
BU2003 Principles of Human Resources Management
This course will teach students how to forecast the human resource needs of an organization within ambient sociopolitical situations.

CM2903-A Communications II
Communications II is a continuation of Communications I and is designed to strengthen practical written and oral presentation skills. Students will apply the appropriate principles and formats to job-related documents and will continue to review grammatical structures and apply editing strategies.

EE1204 Residential Wiring and Methods
This course introduces students to the installation & design of various residential circuits used in a common household. Also, students will be working on actual installations of basic household circuits and electrical services used in the workplace. Topics include: introduction to the electrical code, symbols, service calculations, & installations, wiring methods, grounding. Prerequisite: EE1206 Electrical Fundamentals, EE1034 Digital Circuits

EE2206 Electronics Fundamentals
This course is an introduction to electricity. Its purpose is to develop a foundation for future courses. A clear understanding of basic concepts and their applications to problem solving will be stressed. Lecture topics include electrical quantities, Ohms Law, series circuits, parallel circuits, series-parallel circuits, magnetism, electromagnetism, alternating current and voltage.

EE2204 Installation Methods – CAD I
This course deals with the Electrical Safety Code. House wiring and basic motor control rules will be emphasized, and drawings will be carried out in introductory CAD. Prerequisite: EE1206 Electrical Fundamentals
