College Catalog Fall 2011 - Spring 2012
Electrical Construction and Maintenance - Certificate

The Field

The field of electrical construction and maintenance represents the installation and repair of electrical wiring in residential and commercial buildings.

The Instructional Program

The one-year certificate in Electrical Construction and Maintenance consists of the first-year courses from the two-year associate degree program in Electrical Construction and Instrumentation that begins in the fall each year. The certificate is primarily for those individuals who can only spend one year in college. If a student completes the certificate program and then decides to continue on for the associate degree in Electrical Construction and Instrumentation, the courses taken for the certificate will transfer with no loss of credit.

To obtain this certificate, students must enroll directly in the associate degree in Electrical Construction and Instrumentation.

Career Options

Job opportunities available to students who earn the certificate in Electrical Construction and Maintenance are:

There are career opportunities with electrical unions, electrical contractors, and electrical maintenance firms. Students who continue on for the associate degree increase their options for employment in the field of electrical construction and maintenance.

Further information regarding careers in this field can be found in the Electrical Construction and Instrumentation program description.
