Construction Electricity Management

The rapidly growing construction industry in Florida has intensified the needs for experts in the area of residential electricity.

With the training this program provides and a few years of practical experience in the industry, graduates will be prepared for supervisory and/or management positions.

There are three options within this program:

Technical Certificate

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. This certificate will also increase job skills and will complement the Construction Electricity Management (A.A.S.) degree.

Career Opportunities, Rapid Placement

Florida’s growth is soaring. Jacksonville is a boomtown. And much of the city and state are being built by graduates of our construction programs. The employment rate in all trades is 100%. No Florida Community College student who wants a job goes without a job.
