Become a CALCTP Certified Electrician
Updated On: Jan 20, 2016

CALCTP trains licensed C-10 electrical contractors and state certified general electricians in effective techniques to install, tune, commission and maintain advanced lighting control systems. Funding for the CALCTP Technical Course is supported by grants from the U.S. Department of Labor and the California Employer Training Panel. CALCTP is an equal opportunity program and auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.

Why get Certified?

CALCTP will dramatically increase the demand for lighting controls in commercial buildings. For a building to be eligible for incentives, CALCTP partner utilities, which encompass over 90% of the California market, will require CALCTP-certified contractors and general electricians on each project. If you want to be part of this growing work opportunity, you must be certified.

What is Covered in the Course?

This course is divided into seven modules consisting of both lecture and lab activities. The module content is organized to answer the following about lighting controls: what they are, what they do, where they are used, and how they are installed. Each “lecture” contains one or more interactive components, including group discussions, device demonstrations and/ or calculation exercises.

The corresponding lab period, following the lecture, allows the attendee to directly apply what has been learned by installing the devices on electrical lab board, under the supervision of the CALCTP-certified instructor(s).
