Electrical Technology, Certificate of Achievement

Upon successful completion of the Electrical Technology certificate program, the student demonstrates skills in the electrical industry in the capacity of a beginning electrician, preferably as an indentured electrical apprentice where the students compare, contrast, and apply basic electrical theory and other major portions of the electrical field. Training and skills demonstrated by the student in this program are crucial to safe entry into electrical apprenticeships in the electrical field for programs like the IBEWs (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers) Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee, WECA (Western Electrical Contractors Association) electrical apprenticeship, ABC program (another indentured electrical apprenticeship program).
