Superintendent David DiBarri is pleased to announce that seniors in Northeast Metro Tech’s Electrical Shop visited the the local training facilities of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in Boston.
On Thursday, Oct. 12, Electrical Shop Department Head Frank Zagarella and instructor Mariateresa Bonasera took the Electrical Shop seniors on a field trip to Local 103 IBEW.
The senior class toured Local 103 IBEW’s two training facilities. Students learned about career opportunities available to them through Local 103, including electrical apprenticeship and telecommunications apprenticeship opportunities.
While on the tour, students were able to see and learn about many different aspects of the electrical field, including fire alarm wiring, security wiring, electric motor controls, safety, hospital wiring, electrical theory and electrical transformers.
Students also learned about renewable energy and were given a tour of the solar panels and a wind turbine that helps power the building.
“This was a great learning opportunity for our students and we are grateful to the IBEW Local 103 for providing this opportunity,” said Superintendent DiBarri. “This tour allowed students to learn about a variety of subjects relating to electrical work and it was a valuable experience for all.”
