Take the first steps toward an in-demand trade career with the Electrician diploma program at OBC

Electricity powers so much of our daily lives — from our lights to our laptops, our cell phones to our appliances. We depend on it everywhere we go, whether it’s at home, at the office, at the grocery store or the hospital, or even when we’re waiting at a stoplight. And when the lines go dark, whether from bad weather or bad timing or just everyday malfunctions, everyone calls on person to get things back online: an electrician.

At Ohio Business College, you can enroll in an electrical technician program that can prepare you for an entry-level position as an electrician, providing skills and services needed in various settings, including residential, commercial and industrial. Whether it’s wiring a new building, fixing an electrical problem, or getting old wiring up to code, Ohio Business College can get you the training you need to become employed as an electrical technician.


The Electrician diploma program at Ohio Business College is geared toward the hands-on training that you need to step right into the workforce as a junior electrician. Students learn theory in the classroom and then apply those skills in a lab setting, including installing and maintaining electrical wiring, transformers, a/c and d/c motor control circuits, instrumentation and programmable logic controller, and more. The 48-credit hour electrical technician program includes courses like:

  • Wiring, Cabling, & Connections
  • Motors & Controls
  • Low Voltage
  • Residential Installation

Getting trained in a vital new trade career shouldn’t require putting everything on hold, which is why our Lorain campus offers the Electrician training program full-time, day or evening, to accommodate students’ busy schedules. We think each of our Ohio Business College students deserves personalized attention from instructors, so we keep our class sizes small and focused, providing the kind of professional learning environment best suited for adults who are already juggling jobs, families and other commitments.
