Albany Tech adopts the NCCER Electrical Systems Construction and Maintenance diploma program for Spring 2023
Albany, Georgia – Albany Technical College (ATC) announces a new program offering for NCCER Electrical Systems Construction and Maintenance diploma. With this adoption, the former Electrical Construction and Industrial Electrical diplomas will be replaced with the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) curriculum that can result in a certification outside of the ATC diploma or technical certificates of credit.
“This will open doors for new students to enter a field that is becoming more and more underserved in our community. I am excited about the prospect of growth provided by the NCCER curriculum. I look forward to teaching new students and seeing them grow into a skilled area that I am very passionate about,” said Ebony Johnson, Program Chair/Instructor at Albany Technical College.
The NCCER Electrical Systems Construction and Maintenance Technician program provides instruction in the inspection, maintenance, installation, and repair of electrical systems in residential, commercial, and industrial environments. A combination of theory and practical application is emphasized to develop academic, technical, and professional knowledge and skills. Program graduates receive a diploma as an NCCER Electrical Systems Construction and Maintenance Technician and two technical certificates of credit in NCCER Basic Electrical Systems Technician and NCCER Intermediate Electrical Systems Technician.
The job usually involves electricians to install, maintain, and repair electrical wiring, equipment, and fixtures. Graduates will learn to ensure that work is in accordance with relevant codes. They may also install or service streetlights, intercom systems, or electrical control systems.
Over 21,000 Georgia workers were employed in 2014 as electricians. Almost 60% of those jobs require some level of post-secondary education/credentials. Average employment is expected to grow in the 2013-2023 decade by 11.6% nationally and 9.6% in Georgia.
