Central to Launch Classes For Electrician Certificate

CENTRAL — The Central Community School System has been awarded a $50,000 grant to launch a new Industrial Electrician Certification Program.

The program will be open to students at Central High School during the day and to students and members of the community during the evening.  Classes will be held at the Career Technology Lab at the new Central Middle School.

Supt. Mike Faulk said the school system is grateful for the grant from the Associated Builders & Contractors.  Faulk said, “This is the kind of program which will provide a qualified work force in or near the Central area for the years ahead.”

The program is scheduled to begin in the spring semester.  Supt. Faulk plans to survey students to determine their interest.  Central High already offers a welding certification program.

High school students will probably take the course two hours a day, while night students will take the course three hours a night three nights a week.  The course will be one semester long at first and will expand to two semesters in the fall, he said.  At the end of the course, students will be eligible to take certification tests.

For more information, contact the Central Community School System at 225-262-1919.
