San Diego Electrical Training Center’s new coordinator has launched a new, accelerated training program for Sound Technicians called “FAST-START”.
Ten of the highest scoring applicants took to the classroom this past Monday to embark on their Sound and Communications careers. These individuals went through a vigorous interviewing process that also required qualifying scores on rigorous math and reading comprehension exams.
This culturally diverse and disciplined (40% former military) group has one common theme, “Work hard, do an honest day’s work, make the contractor, local, and society proud of them while providing for their families”.
The FAST-START game plan is designed to frontload the training of an apprentice. This makes the apprentice a much safer, efficient, more independent, and valuable worker. The contractors can then make more profit and the local gets a valuable and dedicated member.
The five-week, eight-hours-per-day training program includes physical exercise, material handling, IBEW motivational videos, construction classes (tool use, material identification, and hardware installation), structured cabling class (voice/data), fiber optics class, OSHA ten-hour safety certification, first aid/CPR/AED, basic electrical code, introductory fire alarms and basic electrical theory.
We are asking you to do your part. Support the team! Take a Sound Technician apprentice!
(FAST-START apprentices will be available when classes end on Oct. 22nd)
Come on down and watch our classes at the training center or just cheer us on!
