The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Power Systems Technology program curriculum is designed to provide training for persons who desire the knowledge necessary to gain employment in the power generation and distribution industries.
Training, most of which is hands-on, will include such topics as AC/DC theory, solid state devices, industrial motors and generators, power plant systems and their operation, power plant chemistry, and other subjects as local needs require. Graduates of this program should qualify for a variety of careers in power generation and distribution fields as an on-the-job trainee or apprentice.
Students must earn a grade of C or better in all courses within the program.
A high school diploma or GED equivalency is required. Formal application and admission to the program is required.
