Workforce Certificate


The future is bright

In the Electricity Workforce Certificate (W.C.) program, experienced faculty teach students the concepts of AC and DC, how to read blueprints, the use of hand and power tools, electrical wiring and maintenance and National Electric Code requirements. Through hands-on experience in a lab or on an actual construction project, students will develop good work habits that will help them become a journeyman or master electrician.

Among the topics covered are: DC/AC theories; proper selection and use of power and hand tools used in the trade; use of blueprints; National Electrical Code (NEC) in-depth study; wiring techniques; electrical maintenance procedures. Approximately 60–70 percent of training experience will be through hands-on situations in the lab and through actual construction projects, with the emphasis placed on safety in the lab and on the project site. Upon successful completion of the Electricity W.C., graduates will be qualified to enter the electrical industry as an experienced helper.
