In a significant boost to aspiring commercial electricians, the Central Arizona College (CAC) Foundation is proud to announce the establishment of the BrightNight Power Commercial Electrician Installer Scholarship. Aimed at fostering skilled professionals in the growing field of commercial electrical installation, this initiative underscores the college's commitment to supporting vocational education and addressing the skilled labor gap in the industry.

The scholarship, named after BrightNight Power in recognition of their collaboration with Cordelio Power on the groundbreaking 300MW Box Canyon solar project in Pinal County, reflects the industry's need for highly trained electricians amidst an era of expanding renewable energy projects. Operations for the Box Canyon solar initiative are slated to commence in early 2025, highlighting the timely nature of this educational investment.

Under the BrightNight Power Commercial Electrician Installer Scholarship, ten deserving students will be awarded $1,350 each, through to the year 2027. Eligibility for this scholarship requires registration in CAC's comprehensive Commercial Electrician-Installer Certificate program, hosted at the college's Superstition Mountain Campus. Prospective recipients must complete 18 credit hours to achieve commercial certification, paving their way to a promising career in the electrician field.

The Commercial Electrician-Installer Certificate program is meticulously designed to prepare individuals for entry-level positions within the sector. Grounded in the principles and standards set forth by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER), the curriculum offers a robust foundation of fundamental knowledge. Moreover, the program affords students the flexibility to tailor their education through additional skills training, enhancing their career readiness and marketability. Successful completion of the certificate also opens the door to obtaining national certification from the NCCER, a credential that can significantly boost professional prospects.

This scholarship and the associated certificate program represent a golden opportunity for those intrigued by the prospects of a career as a commercial electrician installer. It not only promises financial support but also a clear pathway to acquiring the necessary skills and certifications required in the dynamic field of commercial electrical installation.

For individuals interested in seizing this opportunity, more information and application details are available at centralaz.edu/scholarships. With the BrightNight Power Commercial Electrician Installer Scholarship, Central Arizona College and its partners are lighting the way for the next generation of skilled electricians, contributing to the growth and sustainability of the industry.
