Industrial Electrical Technology


NFPA 70, National Electrical Code (NEC)

The Program

The Industrial Electrical Technology programs prepare students to enter the broad range of opportunities available in the electrical fields including light and heavy industry, construction, and utility power companies. The programs are appropriate for students entering the trade, and for individuals who have many years of experience, it provides an opportunity to gain a deeper and more complete understanding of theory and practical information that can be applied to their craft.

The Industrial Electrical Technology department at Chaffey College offers the following:

Industrial Electrical Technology

Level I Certificate:

The Industrial Electrical Technology Level I Certificate of Achievement provides students with the fundamental skills for career paths in the electrical trades, sales, construction, industry, and utility companies. Completing the certificate requirements, students form a foundation in electrical theory, blueprint reading, and the ability to use the National Electrical Code (NEC - NFPA 70). They also gain knowledge of energy sources including photovoltaic (solar) systems. Courses assist students to develop communication, and teamwork skills. Knowledge acquired throughout the certificate program readies first time employees, entering the trade.

Level II Certificate:

The Industrial Electrical Technology Level II Certificate of Achievement provides students with the fundamental skills needed for employment in the electrical trades, including manufacturing, construction, industry, logistics, and utility companies. Completing the certificate requirements, students form a foundation in electrical theory, circuit wiring standards, and industrial electrical controls, including troubleshooting and programmable logic controllers. Knowledge acquired throughout the certificate program ready’s first-time employees, as well as improves the abilities of those already in the trade.

Level III Certificate:

The Industrial Electrical Technology Level III Certificate of Achievement provides students with the fundamental skills for career paths in the electrical trades, including manufacturing, construction, industry, and utility companies. Completing the certificate requirements, students form a foundation in electrical theory, circuit wiring standards, and industrial electrical controls, including troubleshooting and programmable logic controllers. Courses assist students to develop communication, computer, problem-solving techniques, and teamwork skills. Knowledge acquired throughout the certificate program ready’s first-time employees, as well as improves the abilities of those already in the trade.

A.S Degree

The A.S. in Industrial Electrical Technology includes the core curriculum for the Level I, II, and III certificates of achievement, as well as the completion of General Education requirements. Entry-level courses in General Education (arts and humanities, mathematics and natural sciences, and the social sciences) can help you gain a greater understanding of and appreciation for the world and its people. These general education courses will enhance communication skills, improve critical thinking skills and help with a professional career in Industrial Electrical Technology. The Industrial Electrical Technology A.S. degree curriculum covers electricity, magnetics, fundamentals of control systems, electrical machinery, micro processing, programmable logic controllers (PLC), DC and AC variable speed drives, and automation, including modern sophisticated concepts and practical applications.

As a certificated Electrician, you will be able to: Maintain and repair all machinery used in the industry; Commercial Buildings, Electrical Power, Repairman, General Electrician, Troubleshooting Expert, Manufacturing Technician. Electricians are usually paid hourly. Job growth is expected to be higher than the average in coming years. Most of this growth will be due to the increasing population and growing economy which lead to more construction and remodeling that involves the work of electricians. In addition, innovations in technology will create higher demand for electricians as buildings need to have electrical systems for computers, and industrial facilities are using more automated and robotic equipment. Existing buildings need to be remodeled to incorporate electronic systems for computers as well.

Industrial Electrical Technology: Electromechanical Technology

Level I Certificate

Industrial Electrical Technology: Electromechanical Technology Level I Certificate prepares students for careers in environments that require knowledge of electrical and hydraulic systems.

Each program is designed to provide students with the skills needed to master current technology and gain employment in industry. Programs are divided into levels or "building blocks," allowing each student to meet their specific career goals. A certificate is awarded at each level. Associate of Science Degrees are awarded for each program. Credit may be earned for Internship Work Experience and is strongly recommended for all three programs.

Industrial Electrical Technology: Mechatronics

Mechatronics in modern industry relies on highly complex production systems to produce high-quality, economical products for an ever-demanding world. This degree trains students to effectively troubleshoot, maintain, and repair mechanical, electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic, digital, PLC, and motion controls systems. Students who complete this program of study will be prepared to work in a wide range of industries that utilize modern equipment including industrial robotics, programmable logic controllers and other electrical / mechanical systems. Students also develop skills needed to enable processes to work together by integrating technologies similar to those found in manufacturing, logistics, distribution centers, and industrial applications.
Mechatronic Device

Level I Certificate

The Level I certificate prepares students with the entry level knowledge needed to pursue a career using electrical/mechanical systems.

Level II Certificate

The Level II certificate will prepare students for careers in a wide range of modern industries that utilize electrical/mechanical systems.

AS Degree

The A.S. in Industrial Electrical Technology: Mechatronics includes the core curriculum for the Level I, and II certificates of achievement, as well as the completion of General Education requirements. Entry-level courses in General Education (arts and humanities, mathematics and natural sciences, and the social sciences) can help you gain a greater understanding of and appreciation for the world and its people. These general education courses will enhance communication skills, improve critical thinking skills and help with a professional career in Electrical/Mechanical Systems (Mechatronics).

Industrial Maintenance Mechanic

Industrial maintenance workers maintain and repair factory equipment and other industrial machinery such as conveying systems, production machinery, and packaging equipment.

This certificate provides entry-level marketable skills that give the student a basic understanding of terminology, construction math, safety, tools, print reading, communication skills, industrial maintenance, electrical, and construction. Student will develop fundamental skills required to gain employment in their designated skill.
