In the first year at Bedford Science and Technology Center the student develops electrical safety skills, use of tools, and knowledge of electrical control circuits through actual hands-on projects. Blueprint reading, circuit diagramming and residential electrical design are practiced, along with lab projects. Electrical theory is studied through class lecture, self-study in lab kits, and classroom demonstrations. All Students will receive OSHA Safety training.

The second-year student will complete a comprehensive and in-depth study of the national electric code, blueprint reading, residential electrical job costs, and material and system-design computations. In-depth experience is given in actual wiring of residential circuits. In this program at Bedford Science and Technology Center the student may advance in skills competence at a comfortable rate. Other advanced areas of study include conduit bending, Ridgid conduit installation, Network Cabling, and industrial motor control wiring. Students who enroll should possess good mathematical skills and mechanical aptitudes.

The school building is closed to students and the public.  Students should NOT continue work-based learning during the closure period, and all field trips, assemblies, club meetings, service projects, and other school activities are currently cancelled and may be rescheduled at a later date.  We understand that some of you may have personal tools or supplies stored in the classroom; we will update you on a future date when those may be retrieved. Please know these items are safely secured in our classroom.


Any work completed during the initial closure period (March 16 - March 27) is for enrichment purposes.  This work will not be graded for the purposes of high school credit.


Seniors, congratulations on reaching the final semester of your senior year!  I will be providing you resources that you need to access to further your understanding of topics and skills to continue your learning.   You need to complete the associated assessment of your understanding on a criterion-referenced basis such that I can certify that you completed your coursework.  If you have questions about your graduation status, please contact your base high school counselor. If you have questions about what topics you need to study given these circumstances, contact me directly.  It is very important that you clearly understand what is necessary for your preparation for future career goals, and I am here to help you.


Please note that your NCCER safety credential and OSHA-10 credential have been completed. 


Please note that our program is accredited by/regulated by The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER).  If there are pertinent updates from this group, they will be shared with you via Google Classroom.


Again, we also understand that you are preparing for a career about which you care deeply and want to provide you with learning resources during the closure period.  Should additional resources become available for you, I will share them with you via Google Classroom. If you have technical questions about what you may need to do given your personal and professional goals, please contact me apayne1@bedford.k12.va.us.  Please note, again, that work-based learning opportunities are NOT occuring during the period of school closure.


Please feel free to reach me via email.  I will be working remotely during school hours and will respond to email and messages in Google Classroom.
