New Self-Paced GetWired Option: GetWired 104

Tuesday, August 30, 2022

Introducing the next self-paced online option for our GetWired Electrician Trainee Program series:

GetWired 104: Special Systems & Single-Phase Transformer Theory in Residential Electrical Applications

Take it on your own time, at your own pace!

WECA is excited to announce another way students can take GetWired 104, the fourth class in WECA's Path to an Electrician Trainee Program Certificate!

We've long offered GetWired 104 as an online-led instructor course. And we still do!

But for students who would prefer to take this course at their own pace, on their own time, we're now offering a fully self-paced online option, just like we've been offering for GetWired 101102, and 103! Students who might prefer this format include:

  • Students with job, childcare, or other obligations preventing them from taking the instructor-led scheduled course in the evenings
  • Students who would benefit from being able to review the material at a slower pace, such as students for whom English is a second language
  • Students who just prefer to work on the coursework at times when it best works for them

WECA's new GetWired 104 Self-Paced Option is an entirely online, self-paced alternative version of our GetWired 104 course which expands your skills and knowledge into a variety of special applications. Core competencies include:

  • Single-phase transformers
  • Special purpose outlets for electric heating and air conditioning
  • Gas and oil central heating systems
  • Installation of a twist-on coaxial connector
  • Television, telephone and low voltage signal systems
  • Heat, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Fire alarms and security systems
  • Arc flash protection
  • Service entrance equipment
  • Overcurrent protection-fuses and circuit breakers
  • Calculating residential loads
  • Swimming pools, spas, hot tubs, and hydro-massage baths
  • Wiring of home automation systems
  • Stand-by power systems

Practical applications that involve the interpretation of schematic wiring diagrams and/or accessing code requirements information are covered in this fast-paced course.

  • Total class hours available: 42
  • Standard Tuition Fee: $309
