The partnership makes this program unique in several ways: Students must first be admitted into the electrical program through IBEW before they are eligible to enroll at COTC in the Electrical Trades Technology program. Due to the unique structure of the program, it requires 5 years for completion. The core program courses are offered in the evening at the IBEW in Nashport.
