While there are no specific admissions requirements for
the Energy Utility Technology certificate, students should note that some of
the program-specific courses may require ENG and/or MAT prerequisites.
Enter the utility industry workforce as an entry-level
technician or enroll in the Associate in Science in Energy Utility
Technology (available Fall 2008).
The Energy Utility Technology certificate program is designed to prepare
students for entry-level positions in the electrical utility industry. The
industry has forecasted a strong need for new employees in the next several
years for positions such as line workers, meter workers and substation
maintenance personnel. The program includes courses that provide students with
an introduction to the energy utility industry; knowledge of direct and
alternating current circuits; generation, transmission and distribution of
electricity; industrial safety; and computer applications. In addition, students
will gain hands-on experience through a cooperative work experience.
Please note: The
Energy Utility Technology program is supported by a Community-Based Job Training
Grant received from the U.S. Department of Labor. In order to be eligible to
participate in this program, you must be registered with the U.S. Selective
Service System (if required) and eligible to work in the United States.
