South Central Education Consortium to offer Electrical Technology courses
The South Central Education Consortium in Willow Springs is now accepting applications for students in its Electrical Technology program provided by Three Rivers College in the fall.
The Electrical Technology course is a three semester, 33-credit-hour program that prepares participants for careers as electrical technicians, electricians, plant maintenance technicians, and more.
"The Electrical Technology program is an inexpensive, efficient gateway to several in-demand career paths," said Scott Williamson, Director of Three Rivers College's programs at the Consortium. "Entry level jobs in these fields routinely make $30,000 a year or more, and the introduction of new technologies keeps these positions in very high demand. We provide the hands-on training that makes those careers possible for our students."
Applicants must be 18 or older, possess a valid driver's license, and submit their high school transcripts or GED. Students must also take the COMPASS placement test. Financial aid may be available. For more information or to apply, call Scott Williamson at 417-469-3000.
The Consortium was formed as a partnership between Three Rivers and Missouri State University - West Plains in 2013 to bring affordable, accessible higher education to the Willow Springs region. Through the Consortium, Three Rivers offers two-year technical degrees, developmental classes, and short-term career certificates, while MSU - West Plains offers all general education courses.
Registration remains open for Fall semester classes at all Three Rivers locations. For more information, visit trcc.edu or call 573-840-9605.
