Industrial wiring classes start Jan. 21
     Will the New Year bring a new career? It could, with Moraine Park Technical College’s new Industrial Wiring certificate – classes start January 21 for this exciting career. The certificate was created due to industry recommendations and demand.
     The Industrial Wiring Certificate is a six-credit course that will be offered on Moraine Park’s West Bend campus. The certificate is designed for people with little or no background in industrial wiring. Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of electrical motor control components, circuits, and systems found in industrial and manufacturing settings.
     “When the demand in manufacturing grows, so does the need for electrical maintenance in manufacturing equipment,” said Marcia Arndt, Moraine Park dean of Manufacturing Technology. “From working closely with our business and industry partners, we know there is an increasing demand for skilled workers in the industrial wiring field.”
     Additionally, according to Arndt, the two courses in this certificate are directly transferable to Moraine Park’s Electricity Technical Diploma for students interested in furthering their education in this field.
