Life as we know it wouldn't be possible without electricity. Take a moment to think about how many things you use or encounter on a daily basis that require some level of electrical power. Unfortunately, it's not until the power goes down that we are reminded how much we rely on electricity.
It's easy to see why there are so many different careers centered around the design, installation, and maintenance of electrical parts and devices. Even though there's a wide variety of careers to pursue if you are interested in working in the electrical technology field, there are some universal strengths and qualities recommended for students to have before they enter the field.
Electrical technicians don't sit behind a desk all day. These professionals work with specialized tools and equipment to do their jobs. Students who have a passion for hands-on work will thrive in this program because they are taught to use the tools they will encounter in residential, commercial, and industrial projects.
At YTI Career Institute, you will receive the training necessary to use tools like signal generators, digital voltmeters, and oscilloscopes.
Without proper and careful calculations, electricity can go from being a useful and vital source of energy, to an uncontrollable danger. Professionals in electrical technology must be proficient in math. You should have solid understanding of algebra to get a full grasp of what you're being taught in your program.
Aside from the knowledge and experience you need to bring to the job, you need to have well-developed social skills in order to communicate efficiently with your clients and teammates. More often than not, you will be working with groups of technicians on a project, so it is important to work well in a team and collaborate.
Our instructors recognize this important need so we will help you to develop your communication and team skills through collaborative projects.
If this sounds like it fits your profile, then a career in the electrical technology field could be a great fit. Find out more information about our Electrical Technology program by visiting one of our campuses today.
