SJVC Rancho Mirage Announces New Electrical Technology Program

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. - March 8, 2023 - PRLog -- San Joaquin Valley College (SJVC), a family-owned private college that provides a career-focused curriculum for students throughout California, is proud to announce that its Ranch Mirage campus is now offering both a Certificate of Completion and an Associate of Science degree in Electrical Technology. Students can earn a Certificate of Completion in as little as 10 months or an Associate of Science degree in as few as 14 months.

As part of the Electrical Technology program, students will learn about OSHA Standards for the construction industry, electrical conduit bending, electrical blueprint reading, and basic applications of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) such as the PLC language, performing installation and diagnostic functions, using program tools, and logic operations.

Upon completion of the program, graduates should be able to install, maintain and repair electrical systems in a safe, competent and professional manner. They will also be prepared for the California General Electrician's Certification Exam[1] as the program provides hands-on training for troubleshooting different systems, an important skill for working in commercial, industrial and residential environments.

"We are excited to see the successful Electrical Technology program expand beyond SJVC Bakersfield, SJVC Modesto, SJVC Ontario, SJVC Temecula, SJVC Hesperia and the SJVC Fresno – Trades Education Center," said Campus Director at SJVC Rancho Mirage, Rieko Decker. "By offering the program at our campus in Rancho Mirage, we will be in an even better position to help local employers embrace the opportunities of these jobs. We are pleased to continue supporting the community by helping them meet the demand for more well-educated electricians," added Decker.
