Electricians' Training through Distance Learning
Distance learning is not new. This non-traditional approach to education allows the busy student with many responsibilities the flexibility to set his or her own study schedule and pace. Also, the student may start at any time (no specific date for the beginning of a semester) and can avoid the time, effort, and expense of traveling to a traditional classroom. The coursework can be completed entirely at your home or place of business. Correspondence with Novel Engineering is through regular mail, or electronic mail for administrative items or individualized instruction. Through our “Ask A Question,” the student can get individual help by fax, e-mail, or regular mail.
The Maine Electricians’ Examining Board has granted approval of our individual courses, complete training programs, and 15-Hour NEC® update courses.
Novel Engineering has been providing training for electricians, and for others involved in the electrical industry, since the early 90's. We offer individual courses and specific study programs for all electrician’s license categories in Maine. We will be happy to customize a program to fit the student's particular needs.
The instructor and designer of the curriculum is Patrick S. Ouillette. Mr. Ouillette is a certified teacher by the Maine Department of Education in the areas of electricity and electronics, and has served as an adjunct faculty member for the Maine Community College System, working as a Code instructor. He has conducted Code seminars for major industries in Maine, such as Bath Iron Works and Maine Yankee Atomic Power. Mr. Ouillette has broad electrical experience, having been involved in the design, installation, and inspection of industrial, commercial, and residential electrical systems. He has held a Master Electrician’s license since 1973. Mr. Ouillette holds a BS degree in Electrical Technology and is a Registered Professional Engineer. He has eight years of experience working as a State Electrical Inspector in Maine.
The study process involves homework assignments that will need to be submitted to Novel Engineering for review and grading, after which they will be returned to the student. There is no need to wait for a test to be returned to you before continuing your studies. Many of the courses have helpful workbooks. CD-ROMs supplement some of the courses. For more detailed information click here.
The proctored exam is a requirement for Board approval. This supervised exam is an open-book, timed exam. You should not find the exam difficult. If you have done reasonably well on the unit assignments, you should have no trouble completing the exam within the allotted time. The student will receive more information about the proctored exam as studies progress. The exam materials are sent directly to the proctor. You may select your proctor when registering for a course or at a later date, since the availability of a proctor may not be known at the beginning of your studies. Download the Proctor Selection Form or request one from Novel Engineering. If you will be selecting a proctor at a later date, you will be asked to indicate this in the proctor information area on the registration form. The proctor will be subject to approval by Novel Engineering, and may be a teacher, school administrator, librarian, notary public, member of the clergy, etc. The proctor may not be a relative of the student.
