In response to the rising demand for qualified electrical technicians nationwide, IntelliTec College is expanding its new Electrical Technician program to the Colorado Springs campus. The Electrical Technician Certification program begins January 11, 2021, and is designed to be achievable in 10.5-months.
IntelliTec College is a career-training institute with a mission to train students for the jobs that are in high demand in their communities. As the American power grid expands, the country’s demand for skilled electrical technicians is outpacing the current supply. Hand tools maker Klein Tools and consulting firm The Accelerate Group recently released a research report detailing severe shortages in the U.S. electrical workforce gap in the near- and long-term. According to the “Dark by 2050” report, to meet the need of our growing power infrastructure, the U.S. must train between 107,000 and 224,000 new electrician and line worker apprentices between now and 2030.
IntelliTec developed the Electrical Technician program to help meet this growing demand. IntelliTec College’s 10.5-month Electrical Technician Certification program is designed to teach students the skills and knowledge necessary for entry-level employment. Students learn hands-on skills and critical theory to complete essential tasks of the trade, including connecting wires to circuit breakers, transformers, or other components; planning the layout and installation of electrical wiring, equipment, or fixtures based on job specifications and local codes; inspecting electrical systems, equipment, or components to identify hazards, defects, or the need for adjustment or repair, and to ensure compliance with codes. Students learn to use various tools and equipment, such as power construction equipment, measuring devices, power tools, and testing equipment, such as oscilloscopes, ammeters, or test lamps. Students learn to test electrical systems or continuity of circuits in electrical wiring, equipment, or fixtures to ensure compatibility and safety using testing devices such as ohmmeters, voltmeters, or oscilloscopes of the system.
Upon completion of the program, students are prepared to register as an Electrical Apprentice, and upon completion of 4,000 hours of required work experience, may sit for the Residential Wireman exam provided by the Division of Professions and Occupations Colorado Electrical Board. IntelliTec’s program prepares students to obtain job titles such as Electrical Technician, Electrical Repair Technician, or Residential Wireman in the residential, commercial, and construction industries.
The demand for electricians is growing, and IntelliTec is excited to expand its program offerings to serve its students in Colorado Springs better.
