The Electrician Certificate is designed to introduce the students to the foundation theories that govern electricity. The students will become familiar with electrical codes, wiring, print reading, and perform electrical load calculations. Completion of this certificate prepares the student to be an entry-level electrician both residential and industrial electricity.
According to the United States Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics employment of electricians is projected to grow 10 percent from 2018 to 2028, faster than the average for all occupations. Increases in construction spending and demand for alternative energy sources will drive demand for electricians. This program will allow FDTC to have an impact on our service area by providing qualified entry level electricians.
