Parents, having electrical problems… we can help!

NO, we can’t fix your electrical problem at home, that’s illegal. We are currently training the electricians and electrical engineers of tomorrow who will be able to solve your electrical problems.
We are looking for students who like to work outdoors work with their hands and who take pride in their work. We’re seeking students who like challenges and are ready to start preparing for a really cool and exciting career.
Besides great starting wages and high employment demand, the construction trades cannot be outsourced to other countries like so many other jobs today. Parents love our program because it gives their student the basic technical skills needed to start becoming economically self sufficient…..wouldn’t that be neat. Our program also shows students the relevant practical application of what they are learning in their core classes.

In our program our students have the opportunity to join Skills USA, a national student organization. As a member of Skills USA students learn leadership skills and have the opportunity to compete in their skill at the local, District, State and National level.

Moreover, our students also take part in community service projects like Habitat for Humanity. They work hard, but they also have a lot of FUN.

Your student can start earning money, certifications, licenses and college credit hours that will give them a head start in pursuing a CAREER in the Electrical industry while still in high school, saving you time and money.

We look forward to having your student in Texas’s best electrical program.
