The Certificate of Proficiency in Electrical and Control Technology prepares students to become a technician and technologist. Students learn to troubleshoot, wire, repair, adapt, install, and maintain electrical and industrial motor control equipment. Knowledge and experience are gained through theory and engagement in “hands on” labs that prepare graduates to work safely around industrial and commercial electrical equipment. Electrical DC & 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.
