What type of classes do you offer?

Where are you located?

Where do you offer Code Classes?

We offer Code Classes in SD, WY, and MT. Custom classes can be arranged at your location.


What is the cost to attend AETech Classes?

The cost of our classes is posted on the website under each individual type of class.{/mooblock}


Where do you offer the Apprenticeship program?

At our AETech Classroom at 320 East Blvd North, Rapid City, SD.


What is the cost to attend the Apprenticeship Program?

There are four blocks in the Apprenticeship Program. Each month-long block is priced individually, and the price is on the website, or call us.{/mooblock}


How large are the Classes?

Our classes range in size from eight or ten people to close to 100. Most classes are in the 20 to 35 range allowing us to provide more individualized attention to questions. Exam prep classes are on the smaller end of the scale.{/mooblock}


If I take my continuing education classes to renew my license from you, do you send the hours in to the state or do I have to do that?

That is a process that is different for every state. Currently we send in the hours to South Dakota, Montana, Minnesota, Iowa, Montana, and Utah. The individual student is required to send in their completion certificate to other states such as Wyoming, North Dakota, and Nebraska. These rules do change without much notice, so be sure you know at the time of taking a class what the requirements are for your state. {/mooblock}


Will I receive a completion certificate for my class with AETech?

Yes. Please be sure you file your certificate and make copies if necessary. We very often receive requests for replacement certificates from students who have lost theirs and need them to renew a license. Please don’t be caught in that situation.


How often do you offer the Exam Preparation Classes?

We offer the Exam Prep class almost every month.


Where are the Exam Preparation Classes held?

Since the classes are two to five days long, we offer them in Rapid City, SD, in our classroom. That way we have more scheduling flexibility, and are able to conduct smaller classes which sometimes might not be economically feasible in a conference center. Yet, our 2,700 square foot classroom can accommodate larger classes as well.


What states are the Exam Prep classes good for?

The Exam Prep classes are based on the current edition of the National Electrical Code, and are suitable for preparation in any state testing on that Edition. Currently, we are using the 2011 Code, and will change to the 2014 Code sometime in 2014, when the State of SD changes to the 2014 for testing.


If I take the Exam Prep class, do you help me get my state license?

No. Meeting the licensing requirements, applying for the license, and paying the licensing fee is the responsibility of each individual electrician. {/mooblock}


What are the state’s rules to receive a license?

This can vary from state-to-state, and is not always the same. In most cases, states require that you have four years of experience as an apprentice working
