ElectroMechanical Trades students working in the EMT lab.

Electro-Mechanical Trades

  • Students in this program will learn basic electrical theory and how it applies to residential electronics, industrial electricity, and mechanical and robotic operations. Students will understand how to read blueprints and apply that understanding to interpreting schematics and troubleshooting. The course will cover renewable energy (including solar and wind power), security systems, and home entertainment.

    This program is only offered at the Batavia Career and Technical Education Center.
