Construction Electricity Management (A185)

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.

Florida Community College’s Construction Electricity Management program provides entry level skills and prepares you to advance to master electrician and management. The degree curriculum includes general education classes such as mathematics and language combined with hands-on training and professional courses in AC/DC theories, tools, blueprints, National Electrical Code (NEC), wiring techniques and maintenance procedures.

Two technical certificates are included as options within this degree program, Construction Electricity Technician and Construction Electricity Assistant. You may choose to earn the technical certificates while completing the requirements for the degree. For more information call 904.633.8295.
