Keefe Technical School Logo


The electrical trade is a licensed trade in the construction industry, where individual ability and motivation are recognized and rewarded. The Keefe Regional Technical School Electrical Department covers commercial, industrial, and residential wiring of old and new buildings as well as alarm system installation. The course of study provides students with the knowledge of how a building is constructed and wired as well as Solar Energy and wind energy technology.

Residential wiring is just one segment of the electrical course of study. Keefe Regional Technical School emphasizes residential wiring by completing all the electrical work for our annual house-building project. This project introduces the student to the telephone, familiarization with blueprints for location of outlets, and the type of wiring method that will satisfy the Massachusetts Electrical Code.

● Install residential electrical wiring and components for the house building and
   community projects
● Power up a wide range of structures using blueprints to install residential and
   commercial wiring following the National Electrical Code
● Earn apprenticeship experience leading to a journeyman’s license
