Online CET Courses

Continuing Education Training (CET) courses are designed to be used as both an introduction of the topic and advanced content for the experienced electrical installer.  CET courses cover content theory and the latest concepts, including installation practices for both electrical construction and maintenance purposes.  These courses cover all the chapters using a full size textbook. 

The course includes a textbook that contains color illustrations/photographs throughout along with detailed current topic information, unless otherwise specified.

The length of time for the course will vary.  Some courses require classroom & lab sessions (contact the Training Director for additional details).  These are full length courses, therefore plan to schedule a significant amount of hours to complete the course successfully.  The courses can also be delivered as a self-study course for distance learning purposes. 

In either approach, the on-line LMS (Learning Management System) maintains all the scores and the activity of the learner for the JATC instructor to monitor and if necessary as required provide assistance.

In the interest of providing appropriate lab time and instructors there will be a minimum number of students before  we will be able to run a course section.

The following list is just the start of the available CET courses.  

Contact the IBEW 99 JATC Educational and Training Facility for class offerings.
