ADVANCED/OPTIONAL COURSES

Highly valued in certain facets of the power delivery industry, courses and certifications offered through advanced training initiatives are for students who desire a focused experience in specific disciplines outside standard ELP education. Because not all utility and line-construction companies require that their workforce obtain these certifications, they are offered as optional courses. While noted on a student’s transcript, these courses do not affect GPA. Every effort is made to accommodate all who want to enroll; however, enrollment is limited. Once you’ve decided on which optional courses you’d like to take, use the online registration form below.
