Low Voltage System Installer - LV21 Technical Certificate of Credit

Program Description: Low-voltage electricians are responsible for installing, maintaining, and repairing wiring, equipment, and fixtures. They may also be responsible for instructing more-junior staff members on these tasks. These electricians must be up to date on building codes, able to read blueprints correctly, and - if necessary - prepare a sketch of the project. Additionally, low voltage electricians need to communicate regularly with colleagues and clients, meaning excellent communication skills are necessary; they should not only be able to effectively diagnose problems that arise in electrical systems, but communicate with clients on those problems as well. Knowledge of the tools required in day-to-day work is necessary. These electricians can be hired by general contractors who need help on larger projects or individuals and organizations that need help on relatively smaller projects.
