In consideration of the news of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) awareness and precautions, we have decided to close the office and postpone all our on-site labs and classes for the foreseeable future. Staff can still be reached remotely via phone and email. All online classes will continue as usual with applicable deadlines. We will continue to monitor the situation and we will send related emails and post updates when we know when classes will resume.

Electrical Training Program

This training will provide students with all the necessary educative material to be able to confidently understand concepts, real-life techniques, and code information to become highly qualified Electrical Trainees; equipped to work under any contractor.

The 30-month program consists of a total of 10 quarters (3 months/quarter); each of which covers an equivalent of 30 hours’ worth of education per quarter, including educational presentations, review quizzes, and multiple literary resources. Each quarter also includes 8 hours of hands-on training in our lab classes. Students have two options available to them: English or Spanish-assisted.

Academic Probation

Effective October 15, 2017: If a student is not in good standing by the last day of the quarter (checkout date) they will receive a probation letter. There are three reasons why a student would be put on academic probation:

You have 90 days from the date of the letter to catch up or you will be withdrawn from the program. By the end of the 90 days, the 3 items listed above for the current quarter AND following quarter must be completed.

While on Academic Probation you will not be issued a Renewal letter to send to the State if your ET card is set to expire. Once in good standing you can request the letter.

If the requirements are not met you will be dropped from the program and we will notify the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR). If you wish to continue in the program you will have to pay a $100 reinstatement fee.

Dropped Status

After the 90 day probation period if you are not in good standing in the program you will be dropped. If you are dropped you will lose all access to the resources we provide to the ET Program Students.

A second probation in one year will lead to an automatic drop. Once dropped, we notify the Department of Industrial Relations.

Upon CETI personnel review, if you are dropped from the program more than once, you face the possibility of not being allowed back into our program.

If after 1 year, we do not show any activity in the ET Program, all progress will be removed. To be part of our program you will be required to start over at Quarter 1 as a new student.


An unpaid reinstatement fee or two probations in one year will lead to automatic dismissal. Upon dismissal, we notify your employer and the Department of Industrial Relations. If you wish to reenroll in the program, you will lose all previous work and must start from the beginning as a new student.


Students who have been dropped from the program have 30 days to rejoin and continue in our program with a $100 reinstatement fee before the DIR is notified.

After 30 days if you choose to pay the $100 reinstatement fee you will also need to send a reinstatement form to the DIR with a $25 State fee in order for your ET card to become valid.

If you pay the $100 fee, you will only be reinstated to a certain point. If you have completed at least one lesson in a quarter at 100% you will keep that quarter. If you have not completed a lesson, that quarter will not be reinstated, and you will have to pay for that quarter once you are caught up and ready to move forward.

Once you have been reinstated, you have 30 days to become compliant in the program. If you not complaint within those 30 days you will be dropped again and not allowed to reinstate. We will notify the DIR and if you wish to be part of our program you will have to start over as a new student.
