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.
