This certificate is recognized throughout Oregon and industry-wide as a valid indicator of high quality, standardized training, and it provides on-the-job training documentation for community college credit. In addition, the Oregon community college Electrician Apprenticeship Technologies pathway provides statewide transfer opportunities, laddered certificates of completion, and an optional transfer path into Oregon Institute of Technology Bachelor of Science degree in Operations Management or Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Technology and Management.

Electrician trades require successful completion of trade-specific licensure examinations through the Oregon Building Codes Division.
