HAMLET — Scholarship money is available for the NCCER Electrical Level I program offered through Richmond Community College’s Workforce and Economic Development division. The scholarships will cover all tuition, books and fees, as well as specific supplies needed for the class.
The NCCER Electrical Level 1 course provides individuals with the basic skills and knowledge used in the electrical industry, such as safety procedures, construction math, construction drawings, riggings, circuits, electrical theory, the National Electric Code and much more. Upon completion of the course, students will be nationally certified. These credentials are tracked through the National Registry of the National Center for Construction and Education Research (NCCER), allowing companies to verify qualifications. Credentials increase employment and wage advancement opportunities.
The class runs Sept. 5 through March 29 and will meet from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Honeycutt Center in Laurinburg.
The D.R. “Ted” Smith Memorial Scholarship was established by Ed O’Neal, who was a long-time friend of Mr. Smith.
