Power Utilities

The Power Utilities Technology Program provides students the opportunity to prepare for electric utility craft careers such as lineman, electrician, substation or power plant operator.

What types of students would excel in Power Utilities?
Students who are motivated to master the technical skills required for successful installation, operation and maintenance of sophisticated and complex modern electric power systems. Such students must be prepared for lifelong learning and, in many cases, working in rural job locations.

The program introduces students to all aspects of electric power generation, transmission and distribution systems. Those students willing to study effectively can become strong candidates for utility electrical craft apprenticeship positions.

Approximate Costs
Tuition plus textbooks and equipment expenses are estimated to be $5,600.00. Financial assistance will be available for many students.

New Location
The program has been relocated to the new Clark College Columbia Tech Center campus on Mill Plain Blvd just west of 192nd Ave. A new state-of-the art Power Lab has been established at CTC. The new lab will be incorporated into course content and will allow a significant increase in hands on experience with electrical equipment and systems.
