Electrical and Control Technology CA, Certificate of Proficiency

Requirements

This certificate is part of the Learn and Work Program.

If your employment situation has been impacted by COVID-19, UVU and the State of Utah can help. UVU is offering four certificates that are FREE and paid for by the Governor's Office of Economic Development and the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE) grant. This is a full certificate obtained in three months and is online (live interactive).

The Certificate of Proficiency in Electrical and Control Technology CA prepares technicians and technologists to troubleshoot, wire, repair, adapt, install, and maintain electrical and industrial motor control equipment found in many local industries. Knowledge and experience are gained through theory and engaging “hands on” labs that prepare graduates to work safely around industrial and commercial electrical equipment. Electrical DC and AC theory, transformers, circuits, wiring, motors, motor controls, relay logic, logic gates, and the National Electrical Code for commercial and industrial systems is emphasized. Skills are developed in troubleshooting, testing, and analyzing electrical circuits. This is the first employable step in the exciting career path of working with electrically automated equipment.
