College Specific

The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Electrical Systems Technology program curriculum is designed to provide training for persons interested in the installation and maintenance of electrical systems found in commercial and industrial facilities. Training, most of which is hands-on, will include such topics as AC/DC theory, solid state devices, industrial motors and generators, workplace health and safety, and other subjects as local needs require. Graduates of this program should qualify for a variety of careers in electrical fields as an on-the-job trainee or apprentice.
