Aaron Esparza, a Rockford Career College graduate, has a helpful tip for those seeking to become electrical technicians. “Have a good grasp in which field you would like to take your talents: self-employment, the IBEW union, apprenticeships under master electricians, and/or industrial electrician,” he says. Electrical technicians have a wide range of employment options, and our programs strive to prepare students for all of them. All of us at RCC are extremely proud of Aaron for graduating and beginning his new career as an industrial electrical technician at Del Monte Foods.

What You Learn in a Electrical Technician Program

For each graduate of a program, we highlight three different courses. During the program, Aaron took courses such as: Electrical Drawings and Load Calculations, Specialty Transformers and HVAC Controls, and Motor Operations. 

In these courses, he learned about:

  • Electrical drawings; selection and applications of cable trays; procedures for low voltage topics including voice, data, and video; and load calculation of feeders and services
  • Backup power and special communication systems and wiring devices necessary for healthcare facilities, such as fire alarm systems, Digital Alarm Communicator Systems (DACS), installation wiring for alarm initiating and notification devices, and alarm system maintenance; troubleshooting HVAC systems and their controls; and NEC requirements
  • Heat tracing systems along with their applications and installation requirements, basic motor operation and maintenance, and medium voltage terminations and splices
