Electricity powers every aspect of our lives. So, it’s no wonder that electricians are as important as the electricity that powers our homes, workplaces, hospitals, schools, grocery stores, apartment buildings, etc. Like engineers, farmers, teachers, and even nurses’, electricians are sometimes an unsung hero with many people taking for granted how some of our basic needs are met.
These essential workers are installing, maintaining and advancing essential equipment on a daily basis. Electricians are in demand and there are many opportunities within this field for someone who displays a good work ethic, attention to detail, likes to utilize equal parts of their brain and hands, and wants to make a different in both their life and the lives of others.
Each student has had different motivation for choosing electrical training, including a love of tinkering with objects, wanting a career instead of just another job, finding a job that offers growth opportunities and a high earning potential, and wanting to own their own business.
As a way to further enhance our training for electrician positions in different industries, we are proud to offer Construction Electricity and Industrial Electricity programs. See for yourself what a career as a construction electrician or an industrial electrician can offer to power up your future.

With the possibility to work in tight spaces and at heights at times, graduates of the construction electricity program play a vital role in ensuring that the electricity needed to function will operate safely each day.

Industrial electricians are responsible for installing, repairing, and maintaining this equipment, as well as troubleshooting any problems that may arise. Industrial electricians must have a strong understanding of electrical theory and be able to work safely with high-voltage equipment. Students in the industrial electricity program can obtain the knowledge and skills to maintain and repair industrial equipment, automated systems and machinery, programming PLCs and robotics, as well as install, repair and reassemble, modify and move machinery.

HEAR FROM STUDENTS OF ROSEDALE
I worked for 23 years at a plant until another company bought it and closed it down causing over 500 employees to lose their jobs…I had the opportunity to go back to college and I decided to learn a trade [and] chose electrical technology. I chose Rosedale because it was closer to home and I didn’t want to spend 4 years in school. I want to call out all my instructors that taught me while I was there. I knew nothing about electricity and they took the time and patience to listen and give me correct answers. They never had a problem staying over or coming in early to help keep my education going forward. They didn’t let me fail. Never did I envision myself building cables for robots. Since Rosedale, I’m still the same person, I just have a better outlook on life. Once you lose your job after 23 years you can become lost. Rosedale gave me a light at the end of a dark tunnel then Carnegie Robotics made it even brighter.
