Technical Certificate

Construction Electricity Assistant (6186)

Electricity is a national necessity. That silent, invisible current moves at the speed of light, works at the flick of a switch, brews our morning coffee, powers our national defense, runs just about every thing that keeps us calm, cool and connected. No wonder we treat a power outage like an emergency. And no wonder there is always a need for more skilled electricians, especially in Florida where population and construction are at record highs.

Trained electricians who know the National Electrical Code (NEC) will be in increasing demand through this decade. This technical certificate will provide the essential skills and knowledge for an entry-level position. Approximately 60–70 percent of the training experience will be through “hands-on” situations in the lab. For more information call 904.633.8295.
