This certification program was developed at the request of the Electronics and Electrical Technology (EET) Industry Advisory Committee. The specific coursework allows working professionals the opportunity to gain new or expanded expertise in their field for promotions, transfers, or alternate employment. Additionally, this certification provides more advanced coursework options for entry level EET students once they complete their basic coursework. Students pursuing their Associate in Science degree in Electrical Technology or the State Electrician Certification, typically find they have completed all or most of the requirements for this Certificate of Achievement.
Most of the courses in this program are offered at night on Cuesta's main campus to allow students to complete the program without adjustments to their daily work schedule. Additionally, we find that students and employers are pleasantly surprised to find the level of quality and sophistication in Cuesta's state-of-the-art power/control and wiring laboratories. These laboratories were primarily funded by significant grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and create a true "hands-on" learning environment.
