Electrical Orientation


Students interested in the Electrical Technology program are required to complete the Program Orientation Session prior to registering for any classes. Exceptions to this requirement are made for students in Sheet Metal or students in other non-electrical trades programs who want to enroll in ELECT 202; these students may contact Scott Fraser at sfraser@lbcc.edu and Suzanne Engelhardt at sengelhardt@lbcc.edu for the Prerequisite Waiver form. 

At the Orientation, students will have the opportunity to complete a 50 question online electrical math test that will be used as an advisory tool for choosing the appropriate electrical math class. Students who have completed any college math classes should bring unofficial transcripts so that their classes can be evaluated as substitutes for the Electrical math classes. Students may switch from the day or evening programs with instructor and Department Head approvals. 

Faculty recommends that students that are eligible enroll in ENGL 801A and READ 881 before joining the program. In addition, students should have a valid CPR card or concurrent enrollment in a CPR class while participating in the Electrical Technology program.


Safety Requirements and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

The following industry-driven safety standards for student Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will be enforced in all ELECT and CISCO Classes.  

  • Closed-toe shoes, long pants, and shirts with sleeves must be worn in all classes, lecture, and lab, no exceptions. 
  • Safety glasses must be worn in all lab classes. 
  • Students not meeting these minimum requirements will be asked to immediately leave the classroom. 

NOTICE:  Students enrolled in the Sheet Metal or other non-electrical trades programs that would like to enroll in ELECT 202 do not need to attend an Electrical Orientation, just enroll in the section of ELECT 202 class that you would like to take.
