ABOUT ME... 
 
    My name is Mark Lacey, I have been the electrical instructor for Etowah County Career Technical Center for the past 15 years.  I graduated from Sardis High School and attended Gadsden State in the Industrial Maintenance program.  I worked in the industrial electrical field for several years at Tocco Inc. in Boaz, AL before coming to the technical center.  I am highly qualified in Career Technical Education and also NOCTI certified.  After coming to the career technical center I furthered my education at Snead State Community College and Alabama A&M.  It is a great experience working with students on a daily basis and teaching them the skills they need to obtain a job after graduation and succeed in the electrical field.   
 
 MY PROGRAM...
 
 Electrical Technology provides students with experiences in electricity and electrical technology. Instruction is based on the current edition of the National Electrical Code (NEC). Topics include: safety, DC/AC fundamentals, residential wiring, DC/AC rotating equipment, and electrical controls and devices. Students may continue their training with an apprenticeship or a two-four year degree. This program is business/industry certified (BIC) by the Alabama State Department of Education and/or by private certifying agencies. The trade and industry programs have articulation agreements with all community colleges in Alabama, in which program completers may receive free college credit toward a degree for skills they learned in the high school. Many of these program completers receive scholarships to colleges or technical institutes for continued training.
