Program Description:

The Electrical Construction Management program is designed to broaden the electrical apprenticeship technical education by adding skills and knowledge in construction and business management.  Apprenticeships require completion of a rigorous series of lecture and lab activities as well as participation in required hours of supervised, related on-the-job training each year.   The program adds college-level general education, business, and construction courses to provide opportunities for leadership positions or entrepreneurial pursuits.

Program Outcomes: Upon completion of the Electrical Construction Management A.A.S. program, the graduate will have developed the skills, knowledge and abilities to accomplish the following:

  1. Apply electrical theories and concepts.
  2. Utilize with a high degree of knowledge and skill equipment, instruments, software, and technical reference materials currently used in and outlined by national industry standards.
  3. Communicate effectively using well-developed writing, speaking and graphics skills.
  4. Assimilate and practice the concepts and principles of team leadership and the supervisory skills of coaching, evaluating, and delegating.
  5. Apply business and management knowledge of the fundamental role and scope of leadership and supervision.

Applicable Certification/License or Industry-recognized Certificates to Be Awarded: If applicable

By working through local JATC and AJATC affiliates throughout North America, students are able to receive certifications in multiple disciplines.  The Craft Certifications are awarded as a component of the Journeyman Training.  Pellissippi State awards PLA credit for completion of the Journeyman Training, not for individual certifications.

  1. Instrumentation Certification (Successful candidates have been posted to the NJATC’s website and are listed with EPRI for use by prospective employers and utilities requiring pre-employment knowledge assessment in the field of instrumentation.)

  2. Cable Splicing Certification (Certification will enable the Electrical Training Alliance to formally recognize those individuals that have successfully demonstrated an understanding of the knowledge, skills, and abilities of cable splicing.)

  3. Craft Certification (Craft Certification Examinations are designed to evaluate knowledge through the use of six levels of written examinations and skills/abilities through the use of six levels of performance evaluations.)

  4. Solar PV Certification (To receive the PV System Installer Certification, an individual must pass one exam. The exam is intended to measure the necessary competencies for a qualified electrical professional with OSHA 30-hour safety training for construction and several years of hands-on experience in the field.)

Articulation with Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology (TCAT): (Which courses are projected to align with TCAT programs?)

Electrical Construction Management courses (ELCM prefix) are based on electrical training ALLIANCE (previously NJACT) and DOL apprenticeships.  We will first align with community college electrical engineering technology courses (EETC prefix).  TCAT Electrician Apprenticeship Training courses (EAP prefix) and Electromechanical Technology courses (ELM prefix) may be projected to align.
