Apprentice Electrician

Certificate Description

The Apprentice Electrician program is excellent for those individuals who have an interest in expanding their knowledge as it relates to their individual trade.

Apprentice Electrician students in the State of Utah will receive training in national and state codes, material requirements, practical mathematics required in the trade, and other essential subject areas.

The Apprentice Electrician program is composed of two parts: (1) on-the-job training provided by a sponsor who exposes the apprentice to practical applications in all phases of a particular craft, and (2) classroom-related instruction designed to provide the apprentice with knowledge of theoretical and technical aspects of their craft. The total completion of an apprenticeship program will take up to four years, depending upon the level of licensure.

Bridgerland Technical College provides classroom-related and supplemental instruction for the Apprentice Electrician program. Bridgerland Technical College neither provides on-the-job training nor acts as a sponsor for apprentices. Individuals must locate their own sponsors. For individual industry-sponsored programs, a student should contact their employer’s training director or the Apprenticeship Office. For additional information concerning the Apprentice Electrician Program, please contact our Apprentice Office.

Courses are divided into two 90-hour sessions beginning in August and ending in December, then beginning again in January and ending in April.

This program supports the Bridgerland Technical College mission to deliver competency-based, employer-guided career and hands-on technical education to the Bear River Region.
