Introducing another self-paced online option for our GetWired course series: GetWired 102: Introduction to the Basic Installation of Lighting Fixtures and Branch Circuits

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

WECA is excited to announce another way students can take GetWired 102, the second class in WECA's Path to an Electrician Trainee Program Certificate!

We've long offered GetWired 102 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 101 since last fall! 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 102 Self-Paced Option is an entirely online, self-paced alternative version of our GetWired 102 course which introduces fundamental electrical laws and theory and explains how the National Electrical Code (NEC) governs the installations of electrical wiring and equipment. Core competencies include:
  • GFCI and AFCI
  • Series circuits
  • Parallel circuits
  • Luminaries, fixtures, ballasts and lamps
  • NEC subject indexing
  • Lighting branch circuits
  • Combination circuits
  • Measuring instruments
  • Using wire tables and determining conductor sizes
  • Combined lighting circuits
  • Total class hours available: 42
  • Standard Tuition Fee: $309
This course is loaded with interactive practice and an online lab to ensure that skills covered in class can be applied on-the-job.
