MPHS seniors graduate with Electrical Technology Certificates of Competency

Eleven members of the Mount Pleasant High School Class of 2023 not only graduated with their high school diplomas, but they also graduated from Northeast Texas Community College with their Electrical Technology Certificates of Competency. MPHS offers dual credit Electrical Technology classes through NTCC at the Industrial Technology Training Center (ITTC) just in front of MPHS on the access road to I-30.

“The Electrical Technology Certificate of Competency graduates have the opportunity to enter the electrical field with the skills needed for an entry-level position with an Electrical Contractor,” said MPHS and NTCC Electrical Technology instructor Tim Davis. “This gives our students an advantage. The classes include practical, hands-on instruction with real-world applications, not just training from a book, which can lead to higher wages as they enter the electrical industry. Hiring our graduates is an advantage for the contractor as they don’t have to spend time training entry-level employees. Our students will enter the electrical field with the lifelong skills needed to succeed.”
