Electronics & Electrical Technology

The Electrical Technology two-year degree program provides a sound foundation for jobs as an Electrical Technician or an Industrial or Commercial Electrician. This degree will help students who want to become part of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers union prepare for the apprenticeship entrance exam, or the State Electricians Certification exam. Cuesta College is approved by the State Division of Apprenticeship Standards to provide the 720 hours of training mandated to take the State Electricians Certification Exam. This training can be offered either through the Electricians Union (IBEW) or an approved school. Students can apply to become an Electricians Trainee and maintain that status as long as they are enrolled in the approved courses (or complete the program and pass the certification exam).
