The Technical College of the Lowcountry will offer the complete Finishing Electrician Certificate this spring at the New River Campus in Bluffton. Classes include Advanced Residential Wiring, Fixtures and Installation, and National Electrical Codes. Students must apply and register by January 5. Classes start January 9.


The Finishing Electrician Certificate is the advance continuation of electrician education.

The certificate also includes the National Electrical Code journeyman’s license preparation course.


Each class, offered Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, will be held in the evening from 5:20 to 8, a convenient option for those already working. As of May 2010, the S.C. annual mean wage for electricians is $39,910, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
